A momentary lisp of sanity…..

For those who recall this post, I mentioned that in cogitating over the Medusa myth on which Medha was based, I had also dabbled in a little background research. This is the link in question, which I thought in and of itself makes for fascinating reading.

Yes, I did use the phrase ‘in and of itself’. Get over it.

That’s all I have. You can go home now.

Give me a break people! It’s a 3 day work week…..you expect me to be creative at a time like this?!?!

  1. That stuff was pretty cool, never knew anything bout Medusa apart from when she turned up in those old stop-motion Sinbad-type films.

    Reminds me a bit of the Celtic Morrigan; Badbh, Neimhan and the morrigan (or sometimes Macha) was the three-in-one goddess of war, death, destruction, but also fertility and rebirth.

    Course I also wondered why St. Patrick needed to use the shamrock in the legend to teach the Irish about God being three in one, when so many celtic gods were exactly that.

  2. Er … I’ve got to be damn quick with the TM stuff hey? 🙂

  3. I read the Medusa link and then went back to your poem … which, of course is written by a male (er, you). I need to think about this, I like this Medusa chick, she rocks – she kinda reminds me of what Boudicca would be like.
