I learned a wonderful new word
(noun) Originated from Ancient Greece, nepenthe is described as something, which can make you forget your heartache, grief or suffering. (via wordsnquotes)
and I realized I have a lot of things in my life that I can classify as nepenthe
My heart was broken this month. Someone whom I loved dearly, instead of bringing an issue they had to me, chose a different way to handle it. I was crushed that this was the path they had chosen. Even moreso since the ensuing chaos has defamed another person I love and cherish. I have asked myself many times over the course of these past few days, what, if anything, could I have done to engender more trust by this individual. When I have an issue with something someone said or did, I go to the source, always to the source. I thought this was known protocol... or rather, I would have hoped that this was the protocol I have tried to instill in those around me. After days of ruminating, I realize it wasn't something I did or could have done. It was a knee-jerk reaction on their part. I am disappointed.
Our group held a book fair this month. It was awesome and I got these great pictures.
Are You Not Entertained?
Things that entertained me this month.
My favorite scene from the Walking Dead this month
Sean Spicer Press Conference (Melissa McCarthy) - Saturday Night Live video
"It took a few insults delivered in a trademark shriek to hammer home that this really was Melissa McCarthy, in drag, capturing the unquestionable essence of a political figure whose public image so far has largely revolved around belligerence, alternative facts, and cinnamon gum. As soon as the assembled audience figured it out, they began cheering, causing McCarthy’s Spicer to berate them once again. “Settle down, SETTLE DOWN!,” she screeched. “Before we begin, I know that myself and the press have gotten off to a rocky start. And when I say rocky, I mean Rocky the movie because I came out here to punch you. In the face. And also I don’t talk so good.” ~quoted from The Atlantic
Myths, introduced when you are a child, make deep impressions that carry on throughout your life. I discovered Greek myths this way and have had a love of them ever since. The very first myth I ever read explained why we had winter 3 months out of the year. It was a beautiful, gentle tale of the love between a mother and daughter, Demeter and Persephone.
My love of myths and stories and folkore stemmed from this series of books:
"Childcraft was created as a sort of encyclopedia for young children. With simple texts and illustrations, the volumes were designed to make learning fun. Each volume addressed different subjects, including literature — such as short stories and poetry, including fairy tales and nursery rhymes — as well as mathematics and the sciences." ~https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Childcraft
We had the 1974 version of which I read every one, cover to cover, several, several times.
Read by Elizabeth Donnelly. Adapted for Storynory by Charlotte Sebag-Montefiore. Duration 14.32

My very favorites.
On Monday, March 10, my mom said to me when she heard me humming:
"Ohma, it's too bad you can't sing no more. You used to sing good."
Thanks mom. I spent the entire next day singing Tracy Chapman's, Heaven's Here On Earth. She's right.
A facebook friend posted the BladeRunner Trailer and I was asked about the Horses story I watch the Walking Dead with one of my favorite people every week and I have multiple types of copies of the books.
I'll add more as I come across 'em.
Everyone has a story to tell; sometimes several, including me. Here are some stories from my life and from others.
