Kalliope (alternately spelled Calliope) is the eldest of the Greek muses. She is known for being the creator of music and the arts in tandem with it, including poetry, dance, and eloquence; the mother of Orpheus and the woman who enshrined his head on the isle of Lesbos after his untimely end at the hands of the Bakkhantes. She pops up in numerous other mythologies under various names, and was once thought to be the precursor to Brigit - the Celtic goddess of the All.
She embodies many things that I strive for, have, or hope to attain in the future.
As for myself, I’m a first year university student, a godmother of one gorgeous baby girl, a Wiccan, and the youngest (and only surviving) biological child in my family. At some point in the future, I want to spread my love of music, Romantic Era literature (specifically Marlowe and, of course, good old Shakespeare), theatre, and latitudinarian thinking - that is, to actually think for oneself instead of blindly following what is given to you.
They say that putting oneself on the internet allows you to exist in some form for eternity - once it is there you cannot truly delete it. So I ask you to do me one favor: take my hand, write, and live forever.
