Emergency Goddess: Demeter

Can I just say that Lindsay Lohan really needs a goddess. In my lifetime, I can't remember ever seeing a life in the public eye devolve quite so spectacularly and sadly as Lohan's. It's like watching a train wreck.Statue of a goddess restored as Demeter. Marbl...Image via Wikipedia

That girl needs to channel some Demeter. Demeter (Greek goddess of the harvest. Powerful mother figure) went all tough-mama when her daughter Persephone was dragged down to hell. She threatened to let all the plants die (and thus all living beings starve) if she didn't get her daughter back.

Lohan is definitely in hell, and she needs to find her inner tough-mama to fight for that really messed up little girl inside her. Her inner tough-mama needs to convince that girl that she deserves better than the fast track to personal parody. I think she must really hate herself. For that she needs Quan Yin, the Buddhist goddess of compassion. So really she needs a whole lot of goddesses.

I feel sorry for her.

Ditto that. It's a terribly tragic situation. Obviously she still has not hit bottom. That will come one day, and then perhaps she can claw her way back.

Hearing about her this week made me think, "now there's someone who has no self-respect." I feel sorry for her too and hope she can turn things around.

Very well said, the whole way around!

I was at The Times today, and Linday Lohan and the revolution in Egypt are neck-in-neck in terms of hits. Our information superhighway has taken a very strange turn, indeed. Yes, give her goddesses; I'm sure you're the first who has ever had the kindness to do so.

Oh, she really does need an emergency goddess, a whole slew of them. What a shame.

In 2007 I wrote an article about Lohan and others like her. It seems she's holding out longer than the others, and she needs more goddesses than they do. I think she has talent, but it's not going to help her if she doesn't get some sanity.

Ah, (Sordid) Youth!

I've been out of the States for so long, I don't even know who she is. Apparently, not worth my time "googling" her, either. Whoever she is, hope she gets her head back on straight, bless her.

That's all you can do really, feel sorry for her. I can't imagine what I'd be doing if I was her mother. Carrie got her first traffic ticket this morning and I'm on her like nobody's business!

Girls like Lindsey Lohan make us moms with good girls VERY happy!

I only get spatterings of the Lindsey news but she does seem like a lost child. I hope she finds her way to a healthy self and life.

Hum... I don't know who Lindsay Lohan is. But I like Demeter. I have always been able to identify with her :-)
She is a super goddess, the goddess of the Eleusinian Mysteries...
