quite lost

I might be not answering/liking some things  because I really lost track from my activity in the last 2 weeks, I’ll try to catch up soon.

And since I do not log in everyday and I need to organize my likes, I made a second account: http://kalukopidi.tumblr.com  (which is empty by now). So it will be easier to follow/like certain accounts.

I still need to organize many things. I’ve been studying too much (law and myth) and I got sick today ºwº….Patience.

And I’m making the forum (with the help of my brother uvu).

chelidon xD you inspired me for this. What if my characters were birds?  Just meet the elegant and fab (but little) King Peacock of the Underworld and the cute and powerful Queen.
Persephone: so you’re the dreadful god of dead? Hades: uhm yeah!.. I’m totally not trying to impress you, but just see my awesome feathers. I’m the King and… Just look at me!P: I didn’t expect this but… you’re really cute! H: really!? You think so!? Well have a pomegranate for your kindness!P: oki! You have a flower!H: so from now on we will be best friends?P: I don’t think so.H: why not!? Are my feathers not pretty enough?P: we shared a pomegranate. Now we must get married. You knew it was the marriage fruit.H: I’ll pretend I didn’t know that.P: and I’ll tell my mom that you forced me, so I won’t break her heart by making her believe I wanted to get married and leave home.H: Ohh! All right!! I can play the villain in this story! Just look at me! I’m damn scary and everyone must fear me.P: mmm maybe I should tell the truth to my mom. She is not going to believe this thing…NOTE: This is amazing and perfect because peacock in spanish is translated as “pavo real” which would be “royal turkey”. Royal… do you get it? t__t <3

Our own forum?

I was thinking that maybe we could make our own greek myth forum, (hopefully focused on Persephone/Hades story).

Would anyone like to join such place?

I think of a forum, to allow us a better communication system.
I personally don’t like Tumblr messages and the fact discussing equals endless reblog chains.

It would be nice because we could share things as we do here, but we could truly talk and discuss about them instead of just giving silent likes.
We could share a lot of knowledge and nurtur each other :D

(By the discuss I mean exchange ideas, not fighting :p)
(…..or may anyone tell me if such place already exists so I can go there?)

Help?

Does anyone know where I can find greek myth/history research material online? Like an online library? I’ve bought a lot of books, but there are others I can’t find and they are often quoted in scholar texts.

When authors quote and say “See x author, x book, x page” where is oneself supposed to find that information?

I can’t find Kevin Clinton’s work, or some of Karoly Kerenyi’s works. Besides there are other books I’d like to read.

Thanks in advance! :)

When I was a child this book made me dream. I dreamed about many things. But back then I didn’t expect something like this in my future. Didn’t expect every episode to move me to tears.


And right now, I do wonder… What will future bring to us? In five years more, ten years, twenty…Or… what about the future by year 2061, when Halley comet comes back?

I just know that until then we’ll keep on dreaming. 

And creating.

I’m going bankrupt… I spent the whole morning in a library that only sells illustrated books and I found this one.

I loved this book because the text (written by Chiara Lossani) it’s inspired in Karoly Kerényi’s work.
The original title is La nascita delle stagioni. Il mito di Demetra e Persefone  (The born of seasons: the myth of Demeter and Persephone)
