“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.”

“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, It's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, And that enables you to laugh at life's realities.”

What an amazing and interesting woman!

When I think of my friend eurynome, it always makes me smile. She is enthusiastic and passionate and I am lucky to have her in my world!

Thanks Lauren, for being you.

Everybody should get a Lauren because they're so wonderful, unfortunately they only made one. Luckily for all of you she roams the planet freely spreading love, laughter and joy wherever she goes.

And when the Lauren has done her work she returns to her king who after kissing all her wounds better holds her gently as she sleeps.

Here's the thing: remember all that time we used to spend together?

Well, you made me cry.

Eurynome made me laugh.

So: if I happen to see both of you going over a waterfall, whom do you think I'll risk my life to save? Sobering, no?

Though Eurynome seemed like a rather pretentious name for this pirate, I have come to accept that it is rather fitting for her.

Why?
Well, she is pretentious.

She is also rather ocean-like though.
I mean, she wants to be buried at sea, for fuck's sake ...!

How much more pseudo-intellectual-ubergeeky-up-herself can she get when this is the reason why:

Full fathom five thy father lies;
Of his bones are coral made.
Those are pearls that were his eyes,
Nothing of him that doth fade,
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange.
Sea-nymphs hourly ring his knell.
Hark! now I hear them,-- ding dong bell!

Pshaw.

She does like snickers bars though, which redeems her a little in my spacegrrrl3 huzzahy-eyes.

Eury ok ...Eury.

ba booom CHA!

Here, allow me to you the honors.:)

First of all, Eury says I am furry....That means I am special..LOL

Really! Eury, from what I have witnessed, is a funny, warm and very likeable person. Always ready to be there for people and an incredible sincere person. Hell, she doesnt mind me and that says alot about her.:)
HUgs Eury,,
February 3, 2008
Oh, Eurynome, my glorious mermaid! She makes me laugh, she makes me cry, she's my FAVORITE huzzay-eyed dreamgirl from Oz. I think that she'd be the MOST fun person to hang with if one were going to stay up into the wee hours, plop onto a fluffy couch, and chat about the intimate details of the universe. Plus, I'm quite certain that she smells wonderful ; ).

I am quite sure that if this woman did not leave the US that we would have taken the under 30 male population by storm, and would probably be best friends. I wish I had goten to know her better. She is so fun and she rocks and I'm sure she is rockin it in her amazing life south of the equator! xo

I met Lauren on a plane piloted by a loaf of bread. We lived as fearsome space pirates for three years in a universe created by Q..the only downside was that she ate all my books. <3!

even though lauren is a complusive raving batshit-crazy internet-and-everything-else addict, she makes you laugh when you go see a play that features doughnuts as props and then afterwards commands you to drive around harvard square looking for a dunkin donuts because seeing the doughnuts in the play makes her want one really bad.

I very much admire this woman.
no platitudes here. all adoration
for her courage and intellect.
a true gem and treasure for us all.

Every one needs a bit of Lauren in his or her life, hell shes beautiful, witty, entertaining, captavating, well-read, shes the rain on your clove, balloon above your head, vanilla in your coffee, and even the ketchup in your soup.

Disrespectful Moroccan men beware. She'll tear you a new one and not even blink.

well she tossed all night like a raging sea
woke up and climbed from the suicide machine

stuck on the rocks inside opus 40 stoned

she collapses down upon the ocean floor again
tears in waves minds on fire
nights alone by your side
catskill mansions buried screams I'm alive
she cried but I don't know what it means
somewhere out there across the moonlit sands
there's a line drawn like the lines on her own hand
and slamming her eyes locking the door
she collapses down upon the ocean floor again
tears in waves minds on fire
nights alone by your side
tears in waves minds on fire

~ The Blower's Daughter ~

And so it is
Just like you said it would be
Life goes easy on me
Most of the time
And so it is
The shorter story
No love, no glory
No hero in her sky

I can't take my eyes off of you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off of you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes...

And so it is
Just like you said it should be
We'll both forget the breeze
Most of the time
And so it is
The colder water
The blower's daughter
The pupil in denial

I can't take my eyes off of you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off of you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes...

Did I say that I loathe you?
Did I say that I want to
Leave it all behind?

I can't take my mind off of you
I can't take my mind off you
I can't take my mind off of you
I can't take my mind off you
I can't take my mind off you
I can't take my mind...
My mind...my mind...

~ eurynome ~

Many people have wondered why I found myself in Eurynome and, indeed, have asked me *who* the hell she was?!?

Much of what I have learnt about Eurynome comes from Hesiod, Homer, and Robert Graves.

Though it is impossible to "scientifically" validate such mythology, I *am* a firm believer in the myths, stories, poems and oral traditions that western civilisation has built itself both upon and around. Along with David Hume et.al, I agree that this nascent form of pagan 'religion' evolved so that humanity could explain to itself why, where, when, and how we and our surroundings originated ... and how we may understand them.

Whether you agree or not, whether you even care or not, I believe that my choice of name fits me like a glove ... or indeed a wetsuit if you will (ba boom cha!).

No matter what your religious/scientific/rationalist/philosophical et.al outlook, for me the mythology of Eurynome is a beautiful, poignant and siren-esque song that echoes deep within my heart ...

Cheers for reading this far!

Here's a brief-ish (!) history ...


~ E U R Y N O M E ~

(A Mother of the Graces)

Eurynome was only one of the Goddess's names.

Eurynome, "wide wandering," refers to her as the moon traveling across the sky, by the Sumerians she was called the "exalted dove," or, Iahu.

Eurynome was easily the most important Goddess of Pelasgian myth.
She was the Great Goddess, Mother, Creatrix, Ruler, called the Goddess of All Things.

~ ~ ~

There are two goddesses known as Eurynome:

One is an ancient moon goddess that gave birth to the earth and stars.

The other, more recent, Eurynome, is one of the many daughters of Okeanos (Ocean). She and Zeus mated to produce the beautiful and love dispelling Graces: Aglaia, Euphrosyne and Thalia (Hesiod's Theogony, line 908).

When Hephestis, the lame son of Hera, was thrown from Mount Olympos (Olympus), Eurynome and Thetis rescued him and, for nine years, hid him from the other immortals. After that, he returned to Mount Olympos to claim his rightful inheritance as a god. The noble smith of the gods never forgot the motherly kindness shown to him by Eurynome and Thetis.

Eurynome appears in Homer's Iliad (listed by book and line)
• 18.398 ...Hephaistos (Hephaestus) tells his wife, Kharis (Charis), that Eurynome and Thetis had cared for him when he had been thrown from Mount Olympos (Olympus) by Zeus
• 18.399 ...Hephaistos (Hephaestus) refers to Eurynome as ‘daughter of Okeanos (Oceanus)’
• 18.405 ...Hephaistos (Hephaestus) says that only Eurynome and Thetis knew of his fate when he had been thrown from Mount Olympos (Olympus) by Zeus


~ EURYNOME'S CREATION MYTH ~

“IN the beginning, Eurynome, the Goddess of All Things, rose naked from Chaos, but found nothing substantial for her feet to rest upon, and therefore divided the sea from the sky, dancing lonely upon its waves. She danced towards the south, and the wind set in motion behind her seemed something new and apart with which to begin a work of creation. Wheeling about, she caught hold of this north wind, rubbed it between her hands, and behold! the great serpent Ophion. Eurynome danced to warm herself, wildly and more wildly, until Ophion, grown lustful, coiled about those divine limbs and was moved to couple with her. Now, the North Wind, who is also called Boreas, fertilizes; which is why mares often turn their hind-quarters to the wind and breed foals without aid of a stallion. So Eurynome was likewise got with child.

Next, she assumed the form of a dove, brooding on the waves and, in due process of time, laid the Universal Egg. At her bidding, Ophion coiled seven times about this egg, until it hatched and split in two. out tumbled all things that exist, her children: sun, moon, planets, stars, the earth with its mountains and rivers, its trees, herbs, and living creatures.

Eurynome and Ophion made their home upon Mount Olympus, where he vexed her by claiming to be the author of the Universe. Forthwith she bruised his head with her heel, kicked out his teeth, and banished him to the dark caves below the earth.

Next, the goddess created the seven planetary powers, setting a Titaness and a Titan over each. Theia and Hyperion for the Sun; Phoebe and Atlas for the Moon; Dione and Crius for the planet Mars; Metis and Coeus for the planet Mercury; Themis and Eurynmedon for the planet Jupiter; Tethys and Oceanus for Venus; Rhea and Cronus for the planet Saturn.

But the first man was Pelasgus, ancestor of the Pelasgians; he sprang from the soil of Arcadia, followed by certain others, whom he taught to make huts and feed upon acorns and sew pig-skin tunics such as poor folk still wear in Euboea and Phocis.”

"The Pelasgian Creation Myth," in Robert Graves' 'The Greek Myths' (v.I, p. 27: Penguin Books, England, 1955).

~ FURTHER ~

Eurynome was born from Chaos, and her first work was to separate the water from the sky. When she had accomplished this, she began to dance across the water. It was a beautiful, sensual dance of creation. As she danced, she danced South, and faster and faster she danced until a wind grew behind her. Eurynome caught this new thing, this wind, between her hands and rubbed it into a snake. The snake, called Ophion, watched as the Goddess danced and danced to keep herself warm. He saw Eurynome dancing across the waves and was filled with lust. He coiled his body around the Goddess seven times and made love to her as she danced.

Impregnated by Ophion, soon the Goddess lay the Universal Egg. Ophion wrapped his body around it seven times at Eurynome's bidding. As it opened, the earth spilled forth, born populated with animals and plants.

At this point the Mother ascended to Mt. Olympus and began to watch her children take shape. When she ascended, the serpent Ophion followed her as the Goddess's consort. Although Eurynome allowed this, Ophion's boast that he alone was responsible for the creation of the world angered her. Eurynome thus threw him out of heaven.

Eurynome then created the Seven Planetary Powers, putting a Titaness and a Titan over each. Theia and Hyperion were given the Sun and the power of illumination; Phoebe and Atlas were given the Moon and the power of enchantment; Dione and Crius were given the planet Mars and the power of growth; Metis and Coeus were given the planet Mercury and the power of wisdom; Themis and Eurymedon were given the planet Jupiter and the power of law; Tethys and Oceanus were given the planet Venus and the power of love; and Rhea and Cronus took the planet Saturn with the power of peace.

Of course, this is "mere" mythology. According to the theory of a matriarchal prehistory, there were no Gods or priests, only one mother Goddess and her priestesses. Part of the reason for this was that fatherhood was not clearly understood. People believed that women could be impregnated by the wind (like in the story) or by imbibing/eating certain things. Obviously, inheritance was matrilineal.

The Eurynome cult spread all over the Mediterranean and was really a base for most of the religions of the area.

In the Titan cults that preceeded the Olympic cults (Classical mythology), Eurynome was the daughter of Oceanus the Titan. She was a Titaness married to the Titan Ophion. But in this version, though Eurynome still ruled heaven, Ophion ruled as an equal. The two ruled together on Mt. Olympus until Cronos replaced Ophion and Rhea replaced Eurynome.

By the time Classical mythology came around, Eurynome had shrunk to being one of Zeus' many loves (mother of the Charites) and a gentle Oceanid, a far cry from the All-Powerful Creatrix she was once worshipped as.

may ...

May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face.
And rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.


May you live as long as you want,
And never want as long as you live.


Always remember to forget
The things that made you sad.
But never forget to remember
The things that made you glad.

Always remember to forget
The friends that proved untrue.
But never forget to remember
Those that have stuck by you.

Always remember to forget
The troubles that passed away.
But never forget to remember
The blessings that come each day.


May the saddest day of your future be no worse
Than the happiest day of your past.


May the roof above us never fall in.
And may the friends gathered below it never fall out.


May you have warm words on a cold evening,
A full moon on a dark night,
And the road downhill all the way to your door.


May there be a generation of children
On the children of your children.


May you live to be a hundred years,
With one extra year to repent!


May the Lord keep you in His hand
And never close His fist too tight.


May your neighbors respect you,
Trouble neglect you,
The angels protect you,
And heaven accept you.


May the Irish hills caress you.
May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.


May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light,
May good luck pursue you each morning and night.


Walls for the wind,
And a roof for the rain,
And drinks beside the fire -
Laughter to cheer you
And those you love near you,
And all that your heart may desire!


May God be with you and bless you,
May you see your children's children,
May you be poor in misfortune, rich in blessings.
May you know nothing but happiness
From this day forward.


May God grant you many years to live,
For sure He must be knowing
The earth has angels all too few
And heaven is overflowing.


May peace and plenty be the first
To lift the latch to your door,
And happiness be guided to your home
By the candle of Christmas.


May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

Every fucking city ...


~ Paul Kelly - Every Fucking City ~

We argued on the channel train to Paris
The vin rouge helped us make it sweet again
But by the time that we got down to Lyon
Everything I said was wrong and you cursed me in the rain
We split up for a while in Barcelona
We met up six days later in Madrid
I was hoping that the break would make things go a little better for us
And for a little while it almost did
Now I'm in a bar in Copenhagen
And i'm trying hard to forget your name
And I'm staring at the label on a bottle of cerveza
And every fucking city feels the same

You said to call you when I got to London
A French girl told me that you'd left a note
I said to her "I like your accent" and she thought I sounded funny
So we ended up drinking in Soho
Foolishly I followed you to Dublin
Like a ghost I walked the streets of Temple Bar
And all the bright young things were throwing up their Guinness in the gutters
And once I thought I saw you from afar
Now I'm in a nightclub in Helsinki
And they're playing La Vida Loca once again
And I can't believe I'm dancing to this crap but I'm a chance here
And every fucking city sounds the same

At a cafe in the port of Amsterdam
An E-mail from you said you'd gone to Rome
For a minute I thought maybe but my funds were running low
And anyway it sounded like you weren't alone
So I headed north until I got to Hamburg
A chilly city suits a troubled soul
And on the Reeperbahn I paid a woman far too much
To kick me out before I'd even reached my goal
Now I'm in a restaurant in Stockholm
And the waiter here wants me to know his name
And I can order sandwiches in seven different languages
But every fucking city looks the same
Arriverderci, au revoir, aufwiedersen, hasta la vista baby
Yeah, every fucking city's just the same

i saw you last night in the gathering
but could not take you openly in my arms
so i put my lips next to your cheek
pretending to talk privately

the dance is the joy of existence
i am filled with you
skin, blood, bone, brain and soul
there's no room for lack of trust, or trust
nothing in this existence, but that existence

when i am with you, we stay up all night
when you're not here, i can't go to sleep

lovers don't finally meet somewhere
they're in each other all along

friend, our closeness is this
anywhere you put your foot
feel me
in the firmness under you
how is it with this love
i see your world
and not you

Dance when you're broken open.
Dance when you've torn the bandage off.
Dance in the middle of fighting.
Dance in your blood.
Dance when you're perfectly free.
Struck, the dancer hears a tambourine inside her,
like a wave that crests into foam at the very top,

Maybe you don't hear that tambourine,

Close the ears on your head,

There are other things to see, and hear.
Music. Dance.

"Guest House"

This being human is a guest house
Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out for some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing,
and invite them in.
Be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.

~

Love comes with a knife, not some shy question.
And not with fearing for it's reputation!
Love is a madman working his wild schemes,
tearing off his clothes, running through the mountains,
drinking poison and quietly choosing annihilation.

You've been walking the ocean's edge, holding up your robes
to keep them dry.
You must dive naked under, and deeper under, a thousand
times deeper and deeper under.

Love flows down, love flows down.
The ground submits to the sky and suffers what comes down, love flows.
Tell me, is the earth worse for giving in like that?
Don't put blankets over the drum. Open completely.

Ovid Me Baby!!!

Ovid was a Roman poet, who is perhaps best known for "Metamorphoses."

Here are a few quotes from Ovid.

"The gods favor the bold."

"To be loved, be lovable."

"Habits change into character."

"Fortune and love favor the brave."

"To feed the flames. —Alere flammas"

"The burden which is well borne becomes light."

"It is art to conceal art. —Ars est celare artem"

"Dripping hollows out rock. —Gutta cavat lapidem"

"In our play we reveal what kind of people we are."

"Add little to little and there will be a big pile."

"I see and approve better things, but follow worse."

"The burden becomes light which is cheerfully borne."

"Either do not attempt at all or go through with it."

"Wine gives courage and makes men more apt for passion."

"There is a God within us, and we glow when He stirs us."

"The glow of inspiration warms us; it is a holy rapture."

"Everyone is a millionaire where promises are concerned."

"Take rest; a field that has rested gives a bountiful crop."

"Fools laugh at the Latin language."

—Rident stolidi verba Latina"

"Courage conquers all things; it even gives strength to the body."

"Love, and a cough, are not concealed. —Amor tussisque non celantur"

"We are slow to believe that which if believed would hurt our feelings."

"There are a thousand forms of evil; there will be a thousand remedies."

"The workmanship surpassed the subject matter. —Materiam superabat opus"

"He who has lived in obscurity has lived well —Bene qui latuit bene vixit"

"There is no such thing as pure pleasure; some anxiety always goes with it."

"It is the mind that makes the man, and our vigour is in our immortal soul."

"A burden which is done well becomes light. —Leve fit, quod bene fertur, onus"

"What is allowed us is disagreeable, what is denied us causes us intense desire."

"A boar is often held by a not-so-large dog. —A cane non magno saepe tenetur aper"

"Said of Ennius: Greatest in genius, rough in skill. —Ingenio maximus, arte rudis"

"Nations and empires flourish and decay, By turns command, and in their turns obey."

"You who seek an end of love, love yields to business: be busy, and you will be safe."

"Often the prickly thorn produces tender roses. —Saepe creat molles aspera spina rosas"

"He who is not prepared today will be less so tomorrow —Qui non est hodie cras minus aptus erit"

"Every lover is a soldier and has his camp in Cupid. —Militat omnis amans et habet sua castra Cupido"

"Everything which I said could not happen will happen now. —Omnia iam fient fieri quae posse negabam"

"The spirited horse, which will try to win the race of its own accord, will run ever faster if encouraged."

"Happy is the man who has broken the chains which hurt the mind, and has given up worrying once and for all."

"Be patient and tough; one day this pain will be useful to you. —Perfer et obdura; dolor hic tibi proderit olim"

"Chance is always powerful. Let your hook be always cast; in the pool where you least expect it, there will be a fish."

"Whether they give or refuse, it delights women just the same to have been asked. —Quae dant, quaeque negant, gaudent tamen esse rogatae."

"As long as you are lucky, you will have many friends; if cloudy times appear, you will be alone. —Donec eris felix, multos numerabis amicos; tempora si fuerint nubila, solus eris"

Sleep, rest of nature, O sleep, most gentle of the divinities, peace of the soul, thou at whose presence care disappears, who soothest hearts wearied with daily employments, and makest them strong again for labour!"

"All things change, nothing is extinguished. . . . There is nothing in the whole world which is permanent. Everything flows onward; all things are brought into being with a changing nature; the ages themselves glide by in constant movement."

Madame Bovary? C'est Moi.


~ The Queen of Swords!

The Queen of Swords indicates a woman who is blessed (or cursed) with sharp perception, and highly honed intuition. She is acutely analytical, with a razor-sharp ability to get to the heart of a situation, seeing exactly what is, rather than what others would wish her to see.

She is a private woman, unwilling to let people too close to her until she is satisfied she thoroughly understands their motivations. But once won as a friend, she is unfailingly loyal, honest and supportive.

She's usually very intelligent, with a dry sense of humour. Her penetrating insight will often reveal aspects of themselves to others that they had previously been unable to grasp - thus she is a capable therapist, teacher or leader.

The woman represented by this card will be experienced in the flow of life, understanding a great deal about both the great triumphs, and the deepest failings of the race. Her clarity and measured expression will be of great value at times of confusion and sadness.

Sometimes in a reading, this card will turn up to indicate a woman in a particular phase of her life, where she temporarily becomes a Sword as a result of what is happening to her. In that case the card is not quite so positively defined, for it can indicate a woman left alone, and perhaps embittered. She may be a widow, or a woman passing through the aftermath of divorce.

In this case we often see the more negative aspects of the Queen - coldness, judgementalism, criticism. At these times there is a certain sourness about her, with cynicism and sharpness making themselves felt.

It should be said that these qualities are inherent to the woman who is a Queen of Swords by nature too - if the woman concerned has not evolved sufficiently you will often find that the card represents a person who is hard and cold toward others.

~ Working with the Queen of Swords ~

Here we see the Queen of perception and insight. It's a hard thing to pull the wool over the eyes of somebody like this - they will look beyond the face we present and see to the very core of the being. That's one reason why this Queen often represents a woman who stirs deep and complex reactions in the people who come into contact with her. They can feel uneasy, discomforted and awkward when being observed by her. But they may also feel open, relieved and glad to have found somebody with such long sight.

On a day ruled by her, we need to practise our own powers of perception. Rather than dealing with the imaginal psychic quality which is rightly the realm of the Queen of Cups, we must now turn our attention to the everyday world. For, though the Queen of Swords is often highly spiritually developed, she is also absorbed by the intricacies of the process of life. Therefore she looks closely at what happens in life around her.

On this day, try to remind yourself to study the interactions you have with others. Don't just deal with the face value. Struggle to seek behind that mask for the whole being beyond.

Everybody takes up roles, plays out games, displays masks. We have 'professional' faces, which fit each of our roles. And we can become forgetful of the fact that every person we meet does the same thing. Only when we come to know a person well do we recognise the complexity that lies behind the mask.

Recognise yourself when you take up a mask. Know that at this moment you are acting like (for instance) a working person doing their job, or a family member loving the family, or a person alone and taking a bath. Look hard at yourself. You take up roles. Use this day to begin to identify them clearly. Examine the way that you feel differently in each situation. And recognise that though each of those roles is an expression of you, not one single one of them IS you.

Then take that realisation beyond you into the world.......



Affirmation: My life is a constant and glorious exploration.

caveat emptor

When it comes to friends, I love 'em to bits. Those amongst my friends are those I consider family. Chosen members who inspire me, make me laugh, make me cry, and elicit my deepest compassion, loyalty and trust in.

When it comes to cyberfriends, my above words apply equally. I probably won't accept your friend request if I have not engaged in any kind of conversation with you, nor if you neglect adding a personal message to a friend request.

It's not that I don't like you. Maybe we'll become firm friends in the future. It's just that I would rather cultivate my own garden (in the words of Voltaire), than be added by people I don't know to make up friend numbers or for purely networking purposes.

Hope that's cool ....

Along these lines, if you decide to dump me as a friend (pout, eyes watering), I will understand ... but I would really appreciate it if you sent me a really short note just letting me know. You don't have to go into reasons (unless you want to) but I really do value everyone I have contact with, whether that contact be intense, sporadic, or never!

If you can't be arsed, that's cool ... i guess it's just water off a mermaiden's back ...

i am here

~ The Aliens ~

you may not believe it
but there are people
who go through life with
very little
friction or
distress.
they dress well, eat
well, sleep well.
they are contented with
their family
life.
they have moments of
grief
but all in all
they are undisturbed
and often feel
very good.
and when they die
it is an easy
death, usually in their
sleep.

you may not believe
it
but such people do
exist.

but I am not one of
them.
oh no, I am not one
of them,
I am not even near
to being
one of
them

but they are
there

and I am
here.
