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. Beautiful! 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. Comments are closed.
