Atlas And Hermes @AshleyAnnAuthor @Heartchasms

Sometimes I feel like the Grecian god Atlas, like I’ve got the weight of the world on my shoulders. It’s not that I have too many responsibilities. If anything, I’m not responsible enough, but it just seems like everything is bearing down on me at once.

I currently have almost enough money in the bank to pay next month’s rent. I know I get paid on Thursday, but I worry (perhaps a bit too much) that with all I have to pay for and all I chose to waste money on recently that I will not be able to stay afloat.

I wish that Hermes/Mercury (Greek god of riches, trade and good fortune/Roman god of trade, profit, merchants and travelers) would smile down upon me. Maybe he could drop his purse down to earth so that I could put the money in the bank.

I oft times wish I could be more like the nomadic side of myself. I wish I could pack my bags and leave whenever I pleased; follow the herd, the crops, the seasons, the fortune.

The reasons I cannot are obvious:

  • in today’s world one needs money and/or transportation to get where one needs or wants to be.
  • Being that I am a woman, and even in this post Women’s Liberation society women are still thought by many to be the weaker sex, I would not be able to safely hitchhike to anywhere, so
  • I would of course need a vehicle of my own or the money to take a plane/train/bus/rental car/boat/bicycle/motorcycle/helicopter/truck/horse to where I wanted to go.
  • As I neither own nor could afford to own or use any of those things I guess I am shit out of luck.

The life of a chained stallion is not a comfortable one, but this I must do until I could afford something more. I don’t want to be famous, but I’d love to be rich. I don’t want to be bogged down, but I want to own property.

I am, of course, paradoxically geminus. I am both twins in one body. I hold conflicting political and social views. I find myself wanting both one thing and the antonym of that thing.

I guess it is only natural that since Hermes is son of Zeus and the nymph Maia, and since Maia is the daughter of Atlas that I should feel a connection to both Grecian gods; family ties and all that good bullshit I suppose.

I was born a Gemini and I never believed in all that superstitious crap until I started reading about the personalities of the astral signs and who does what and how and why. It makes perfect sense. It’s just personality profiling.

I was born in the Chinese year of the Wood Ox. I don’t think all that fits me as much, but I have found some things that make sense. The fact that I even pay attention to astrology and Grecian gods and then all the other things I am into just proves my point about my confusing eclectic personality.

If only any of this would make sense. Or better yet if it would make me cents, or dollars; lots and lots of dollars!

Weezer–Beverly Hills, that’s where I want to be. Give me, give me, living in Beverly Hills, Beverly Hills, rolling like a celebrity. Give me, give me, living in Beverly Hills.
