Athena and Arachne

Standard

“Don’t eff with the ineffable.”

Likewise, don’t gloat over a Goddess.

Especially if she’s Greek…
A wonderful Tell, with ever Thanks 🙏🙏

Myth Crafts

Imagine this:

You are a shepherd’s daughter; from the time you were a child, you’ve worked the loom.

This is no longer work; it is pure art. It comes as naturally as breathing; it isn’t something you do.

It’s who your are. Your craft describes and defines you.

Some people can present their gifts with grace.

Others, not so much.

Your name is Arachne, and you are about to weave your own fate.

One of my favorite authors, the late great Robert Anton Wilson, once made a proclamation:

“Don’t eff with the ineffable.”

Likewise, don’t gloat over a Goddess.

Especially if she’s Greek…

Athena was the Goddess of War.

But she was also the Goddess of Arts and Crafts.

It was said that she sprang fully grown and armored from Zeus’ forehead.

Other tales recount that Zeus had swallowed Metis, Titaness of Wisdom.

After they had made love.
