Wow! That’s wild! But cool!
Well if it had 9 heads it would be “The Hydra”
Thanks for sharing, I’ll look out for any hydras … isn’t there a serpent headed woman who can turn men into stone, I forget the name !
No, that was Gorgo hence the term “gorgoneion” on the shields of Ancient Greek hoplites
😀 yes I was thinking of Medusa, probably from clash of the titans … Greek mythology is fascinating, although I’m more of a movie watcher than a reader …
As a Greek I happen to be very flattered by your comment. You do not need to read heavily in our days… Its a nixed blessing of the internet….
You’re welcome 😀 Greek mythology is very interesting, the stories encompass a wide range human experience by some highly intelligent authors … and yes internet a mixed blessing in some ways ! 100 years ago, I’d have had to have been a reader … I like movies, and TV as a medium, like to see how they imaginative parts are demonstrated 😀
Reblogged this on Shaktipata.
Thanks for the reblog 😀
Have you been up there again?
Almost every other day …
Good for you.
In my imagination of course, amazing how far one can travel without actually going anywhere 😛
Or how far we travel in our dreams. I’ve been all over the world in the past week then. lol
Much distance can be covered in the imagination whilst not appearing to be “doing” anything …
This could go on all day you know.
Either one of us is just as capable of changing the subject … how’s your life coach course going ?
There has been too much else going on in my life and I haven’t looked at the study notes in ages. I need to move my butt.
Thank you Don for the image of the eight headed dragon on Big Buddha Hill.
You’re welcome 😀
Does “dragon” have the same concept there as it does to Englanders, or is it as it appears, a really big snake?
LOL … I’m sure some research would yield the mysteries of Asian folklore such as dragons … Dragons in asia do often seem to have a serpent like appearance, or could be they actually call it something else …
