Of False Senators and their wrasses

leave a comment »

May 4, 2017: Now that the Republican health insurance plan has passed the House and heads for the US Senate, I’m taking a moment to appreciate that famously deliberative body of government which We The People must now depend upon to do the right thing in spite of the Ayn-Randian notion of survival of the fittest.

To me there seems to be something fishy about the entire GOP plan especially considering the anti-government infiltrators of Washington though naturally you may choose to disagree.

So are you, dear reader, one of those “good people” Republicans favor who are in perfect health and (preferably) have boo koodles of money? Of course, Washington politicians don’t have to worry a moment about their own medical coverage but we must wonder how pleasant their breaks to go home will turn out once the wider public realizes what Republicans have done to millions of Americans while giving the wealthy classes huge tax breaks!

How will they manage to cover their wrasses?

New from author Jonathan Winn!

Martuk ... the Holy

From a new five star Amazon review of The Tall Priest from Zak over at The Eyes of Madness:

“…This world is the perfect amalgam of beauty and pain, magic and tragedy. Immediately engrossing and perpetually heartbreaking, The Martuk series of shorts are the stories I recommend most often…”

►Greek Mythology: “Hephaestus” / “Collaboration with Holly Rene Hunter” 🔥.-

with 2 comments

Enlightening notes on Hephaistos, the first archetype of disability:

La Audacia de Aquiles

►Greek Mythology: “Hephaestus”  /

“Collaboration with Holly Rene Hunter”:

“The Fall Of Hephaestus” by C. Van Poelenburg. 17th century.

_____________________________________________________________________________

Hephaestus(Roman equivalent: Vulcan)  was the Greek god of fire, metal work, blacksmiths and craftsmen.

According to Homer’s  “Iliad”, Hephaestus was born of the union of Zeusand Hera. In another tradition, attested by Hesiod, Hera bore Hephaestus alone.

Hephaestus. Attic Red Figure. 430 – 420 BC.

Hesiod tells us in “Theogony”, that in order to get even with Zeus for solely bringing about the birth of Athena, Hera produced the child Hephaestus all on her own.

Though Hesiod’s version seems to be the one that is most commonly accepted among readers, its content greatly alters our understanding of the birth of Athena. The ancient texts unequivocally state that it was Hephaestus who released the goddess from the head of Zeus by cracking the god’s…

The 3 vibration

3 is my kind of number!

Aphrolina

In Numerology, each number gives off a unique vibration. The number 3 is the number of creation. Optimism, imagination, self-expression, and charm are terms that can be used to describe the vibration of this number. The power of the number 3 is one that allows the bearer to create original solutions, that were previously unknown.

Many profound triads are represented by this number. For example:

  • Past, present, and future
  • The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit from the Bible
  • Birth, life, and death

Bearers of the number 3 are the artists of the world. Generally extraverted, they possess a strong desire to express themselves, and to spread joy to others. The gift of communication, both verbally and written, is something they rely on. It is a tool that they were endowed with in this lifetime.

Of course there cannot be positive without negative, no light without dark. Negative traits that are associated with the…

Trump Family Files for More Migrant Workers!

Setting all hypocrisy aside, the Trump Family Wants More Migrant Workers for Family Businesses in spite of Trump’s campaign promise to create thousands of jobs for American workers.

Hypocrisy, simple irony, or both?

Do you think the very public presidential spotlight on the family’s business activities has turned out to be brighter than expected? You know, along the lines of “who knew healthcare was so complicated?” Everybody knew but Donald!

beautiful brutal razor’s edge

Nice!

Martuk ... the Holy

Here’s what one review said about The Wounded King:

““The Martuk Series” of novellas… really captivated me…with an amplified sense of brutality and pain, there’s dark stuff here kids, all the way around. And I am on pins and needles for the next entry in “The Martuk Series”, “The Tall Priest”.

Not only will this push the envelope, it will guild that envelope in gold, hone it to a razors edge and use it in a beautiful & brutal ceremony. It so fucking heavy and beautiful and I loved every moment of it.”

So head on over and pick up The Wounded King, the first in the series, FREE now thru Sunday, March 12th, 2017.

Princes, Paupers, Pilgrims & Pioneers: Our Predecessors & Me

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel are essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
