Athena and Athena, the Art Institute of Chicago, November 2013
Krissy’s genes are beating the crap out yours, get back in there and fight man!
My first thought was what a beautiful young woman. Thanks for sharing.
Sheesh, twins. I didn’t know you had twins … !
The personification of wisdom and inspiration and a pretty cool old piece of stonecarving!
Love the long hair! She’s lovely, the spitting image of Krissy! You’re a lucky man!
Athena becomes her. You should be proud.
I love this. Does she enjoy having that name? I would’ve loved it when I was a kid, but then I know some kids hate their names no matter what. My 9-month-old is named Terran, and I’m waiting for the day he rolls his eyes about how his parents gave him such a geeky name.
And you know the one on the left is probably thinking “Man, I wish *I* was sprung fully formed from the forehead of Zeus, ‘cos the older I get the more embarrassing Dad becomes…”
A beautiful goddess.
The statue isn’t bad, either.
I suppose it’s out of place to ask if Athena was as much a headache to you when she was born as Athena was to Zeus when she was born? But then, I think Zeus deserved all the headaches he got, since he brought them on himself. I don’t think YOU deserve all the headaches you get, John. Sorry I missed you on Saturday, I was out deathly sick……
very thoughtful contrast, comparison and….coincidence? hehe
Wow, time marches on! Makes me feel….old.
You have a lovely daughter, sir.
Looking a lot like her mother in this photo.
