Today

Today I felt there was no better way to honour Aphrodite's Day than to spend time with Her at the British Museum, one of my favourite places in the whole wide world.

There are quite a lot of Aphrodite statues and artifacts there, but the one that draws the most attention:-


There was also this statue of Venus (but I say it's Aphrodite since it is a copy of a Greek statue) which is in the same location as the one above:-


It was a very busy day at the Museum and lots of people were taking pictures of the main Aphrodite statue (the first picture).  It was a strange situation because I wanted to kneel before Her, make offerings, say prayers, talk to Her and yet couldn't given the circumstances.  So I did the only thing I could do: stand there and cry.  I then sat down, powdered my nose, re-applied my lipstick (because I felt Aphrodite would be a-ok with this) and then proceeded to stand up and cry all over again.  I'm sure people thought I was mad.

More pictures of Aphrodite and some of the other Greek artifacts are on Flickr here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/avalonblessings/sets/72157624060363724/
