Sophia wants a goddess who will help her overcome annoying obstacles. She needs the Hittite goddess Inaras.
Once there was a cruel and vicious dragon named Illuyankas. Illuyankas hated the gods and set out to destroy them. Try what they might, the gods could not beat Illuyankas. Illuyankas was just too powerful. But Inaras came up with a plan. She invited Illuyankas to a giant feast in his honor. Well, how could Illuyankas say no? It was a feast in his honor, and there was pie. Illuyankas ate and ate and ate. He got so fat that he couldn't crawl back into his home. He got so fat he couldn't reach his feet. So they hogtied him and killed him, and that was that for the gods' dragon problem.
Inaras reminds us that not all obstacles can be fought head on. Sometimes, what you really need is strategy, patience and a good pie. Personally, I prefer apple pie, but only if it's not too goopy and if the apples aren't too soft.
Channel this goddess: when the straightest line won't take you where you need to go, when wiles are in order, when cooking for annoying thin people who take, like, two bites and then say, "Oh, I'm so full!"
Need a goddess? I've got goddesses! Post a comment explaining what you need or want a goddess for. Then check back in a week or two and see what you got.
On a book trailer note: You had to know that some people would raise the artistic bar.
This is Lorena, as painted by Jean Spitzer. I think she's Venus because she is so lovely. What do you think?
