Here is a drawing of Athena, the godess of ancient Athens. She is one of my favorite Greek gods, right up there with Posiedon. This drawing is what I imagine the statue of her looked like 2400 years ago in the Parthenon. I have seen the new Parthenon in Nashville, which although very nice and interesting to see, pales in comparision to the real thing, with the exception that you can get an idea of what the whole thing looked like when new. It is said that she sprang fully grown and armored from the head of Zeus, her father.
I'm 49 and married with children (look out Al Bundy)went to college and got a degree, have been fixing electromechanical computer controlled machines for over 25 years (currently in healthcare).To do my job I travel the midwest (OH, MI,NY,PA,MN,WI,) south (NC,SC,TN,LA), and west (AZ,CO,WY,ND). In the 80's lived in NYC while in the US Coast Guard, traveled thru Europe, got married. I had kids in the 90's and went back to school until I got my degree in 2000. Last 9 years things have really come together for me professionally. I have lots of good things in my life, but lingering regrets over paths not taken.Seem to be kind of like a shark, if I quit swimming, I stop breathing. There's always something out there... and I can't stop looking until I find IT (whatever IT is).
