Persephone – This post is dedicated to Kathleen

Today's post is not only important because is Tuesday. It is important because it is devoted to love and passing away, duties and infatuation. And what is also important, I dedicate this post to Kathleen.

Persephone (also known as Kore) was the daughter of Demeter, the goddess of the harvest, and Zeus. was abducted by Hades, who desired a wife. When Persephone was gathering flowers, she was entranced by a narcissus flower planted by Gaia (to lure her to the underworld as a favor to Hades), and when she picked it the earth suddenly opened up. Hades, appearing in a golden chariot, seduced and carried Persephone into the underworld. When Demeter found out that Zeus had given Hades permission to abduct Persephone and take her as a wife, Demeter became enraged at Zeus and stopped growing harvests for the earth. To soothe her, Zeus sent Hermes to the underworld to return Persephone to her mother. However, she had eaten six pomegranate seeds in the underworld and was thus eternally tied to the underworld, since the pomegranate seed was sacred there.

could then only leave the underworld when the earth was blooming, or every season except the winter.

is two sides of reality. And so it was sung by Dead Can Dance.
