Some think that even the ancients who lived long before the present generation, and first framed accounts of the Gods, had a similar view of nature; for they made the Oceanus and Tethys the parents of creation, and described the oath of the Gods as being by water, to which they give the name of Styx; for what is oldest is most honourable, and the most honourable thing is that by which one swears
Mary Austin, Land of Little Rain, 1976
A lovely quiet day today. Coffee, presents, friends dropping by and a long walk by the river with the new pair of fingerless gloves that Abigail gave me. Very comfortable and they work wonderfully. The time is flowing fast now.
I hope that you all had a lovely day today, whether you celebrate or not, and that the end of the year brings nothing but good.
