Mythology in Progress

All of life is mythology in progress. Twenty observers of any given event would if asked, give varying reports of what they had observed. In fact any individual’s story about such would probably be altered over time. Only in print does a story have an opportunity to remain unchanged over time. But if a story or a report of an event makes for interesting reading and becomes a part of history, historians are notorious for arguing among themselves over the accuracy of recorded events. And then there are translations to other languages. There may even be translations within the original language as time changes that language into something new.

What is important is not the story but the lesson learned.

PELE

PELE

 Great Memory Sandy.His name was Frank Marvin Blasingame.

The Polynesian fire goddess of volcanoes and sometimes of the sea, Pele was often regarded as part fish. There are connections to many other deities with similar stories evolving in Greek mythology. Mermaids were spoken about by sailors who traveled in and about Hawaii. The big “feet” with too many “toes” are flippers. Her boyfriend seems to be growing a flipper of his own.

Thanks for trimming the image.
