Diodorus Siculus, Library of History 5. 72. 5 (trans. Oldfather) (Greek historian C1st B.C.) :
“The Horai (Horae), as they are called, to each of them, according as her name indicates, was given [assigned by Zeus and Hera] the ordering and adornment of life, so as to serve to the greatest advantage of mankind; for there is nothing which is better to build a life of felicity than obedience to law (eunomia) and justice (dike) and peace.

Wise council of Thee; and
How to “build a life of felicity”...to be continued.
My Dear First Lady,
I am writing to you personally to offer my thanks and gratitude for you, your husband and the whole Trump administration. What you have done for this Great Nation by exposing the real enemy within—will always be remembered by those who see through the lies all the way to the truth–and still trust in the best days ahead.
Regardless of the outcome of this contestable election, I will continue to work for all that is good in the world.
I pray good laws, (Eunomia) justice (Dike) and peace (Eirene) will lead us forward through the darkest days ahead, and we may soon begin rebuilding our best and brightest life yet.

Dare we forget Helios?
I am just in awe of this post! It lit me up from the inside out! It is full of the Charities… Aglaia (Brightness), Euphrosyne (Joyfulness), and Thalia (Bloom). The spirit of your words are of the Charities.
May we all see and be exalted to beauty…in our best nature – our very best given to one another.
Thank you, Nina!

No we don’t dare forget anyone! But we forget Eris…and then she gets mad and all hell breaks loose.
I love that this lit you up inside! The ‘gods’ are inside…you and me…you know? They live in the Kingdom…inside our own hearts. Close in our bosom. I love this word—bosom. Hugged closely held tenderly…the opposite of distant. Bosom buddies…
Yes! May we All see our own very best nature, exalted to beauty (which is infinite) that we may GIVE ourselves to each other—the perfect gift—and just in time for the coming holy days ahead.
M’Dear you are on to me with the Charities…when the three sisters Horai are present in the home (invited in) so begins the Charities to ‘bloom’…into another poem.
And now I must write what you have invoked. The gods long to play with us. And why not? We can be so much fun! And what ‘kind’ of gathering would we create that they would come, that even Eris may feel welcome to sit quietly in a place of honor where no one disturbs her.
Love and hugs to you,
I 💓 2CU.

I love her pose and elegance too. They have exposed the evil and yet so many still won’t see it! But it’s ok. All in good time. Perfect timing. 🙏🏻
