My family took me to the Getty Villa for Mother's Day. If you don't know the Getty Villa, it is a beautiful museum in Malibu that is devoted to classical art. We went to see an exhibit called Aphrodite and the gods of love. If you can go, you should. It's fabulous.
When I have a chance, I'll post a picture of me rocking my new Aphrodite tee shirt. In the meantime, here is an ancient Greek epitaph from a book called Pure Pagan: Seven Centuries of Greek Poems and Fragments. So far this is my favorite (PS: it helps to know that Zeus is the king of the gods and Bacchus is the god of wine):
No wonder I slipped, and fell, and died,
Soaked by Zeus outside,
Soaked by Bacchus within.
The odds were two to one
And they were gods.
Good news: I have more photos for the book trailer. Have you sent me yours? No! Why not? You know it won't be the same without you.
