(Scale Model Nerds, Swipe>>) You know that if I see a nice scale model in a museum, I'm gonna take me a photo. But wait: it shows an ancient building under construction, with guys working and everything? Well, now we got ourselves a slideshow cookin'.
This model, from the Eretria Archeological Museum, imagines the Temple of Apollo Dafniforos under construction around 510ishBC. It was probably still under construction when the Persians sacked the city in 490BC. It did eventually get finished though and was used for several centuries, until the Romans destroyed it in 198BC. (Oh, what a rough few hundred years those Eretrians had.)
The images are pretty self-explanatory. The last three are of another model in the museum: a house from around the same time period. It's shown being used by the inhabitants and so has various non-construction things going on, like women weaving and kids playing knucklebones in the courtyard while a bunch of men have a drinking symposium inside. Those were the days, man. Those were the days...#~
"Истекая, яд, выходи из Ра, выходи из Ра и засияй на его устах. Это заклинаю я, Исида, и это я заставила яд упасть на землю. Ра будет жить, а яд умрёт; если же яд будет жить, то умрёт Ра"

Released on May 26, 2019, this Reflection is a speech that I wrote to present at Modo Yoga St. John’s. Jill Holden and the family down at the studio were gracious enough to host me on April 27, 2019, for a signing of The Yoga of Strength as part of the Grow Your Yoga event they run throughout the month of April each year. I had planned on doing a reading from the book and giving this speech, but nobody showed up. Rather than waste what I had written, I am offering it to you now, in Reflection form.
A big thank you to Modo Yoga yet again for all of the love and support. Seriously, if you want to know what all the buzz about yoga is about and you live in the St. John’s area, check out Modo. Most classes are considered ‘hot’ and you will sweat, but do not let that deter you. It is a wonderful feeling and if you just want a work out, you will leave class more than happy (and probably a little bit surprised about how hard it was, if you were like me). As for the mental and spiritual aspects - I cannot even begin to repay the studio for the self-development that occurred on the mat in one of the many classes I have attended.
Except by, perhaps, paying it forward. You might get a taste of what I mean by reading on.
