dreaming of pomegranates…

 

 

 

 

I have become so immersed in Greek mythology it’s intruding into my dreams. Do you ever notice that sometimes there is a phrase or person who seems to be present during a certain time? This last week was a perfect example. We started Greek mythology in class, and I told my students about the three little pomegranate seeds that brought Persephone into an unfortunate marriage (although, I think she’s actually kind of digging the power now). Then, I wrote myself an email reminding me to bring in a pomegranate to class in case someone hadn’t seen one before. Next, my husband brought up pomegranates out of the blue. Then, pomegranate juice was being advertised all over Facebook. I know it seems like silly coincidences, and they are, but brains do love patterns. Last night I dreamed that Hades would place three pomegranate seeds on the threshold of the Underworld to keep Persephone (Proserpine) in check.

I like the above student video very much, but..I think it was not Helios who told Demeter in another version. Can you find out who?
