"So they sent their ravishing voices out across the air and the heart inside me throbbed to listen longer. I signaled the crew with frowns to set me free-- they flung themselves at the oars and rowed harder..." The Odyssey

There's a new bath salt up in the shop! Check out the link in the bio to find it! This bath salt was inspired by the irresistibly enticing voices of the Sirens from The Odyssey. Containing both lavender and jasmine essential oils, this bath soak smells as sweet and seductive as the infamous Siren's song sounds... without the negative side effects of drowning a terrifying death!

5th grade, get excited to study and adapt The Tempest into an immersive experience this fall.

Good morning!!!!!
.
Sitting in the car singing and dancing just me and Jesus, drinking lots of coffee J lovingly made for me this morning, waiting for mamas to drop off their kids at school and come spend a morning with me being poured into, loved on, be reminded of their light and their worth and that they are so incredibly enough, wherever and whatever they are.
.
My favorite part about these workshops is getting to sit down as I craft it and getting to take stock and think about what I would have really wanted and needed and still do need to know as a mama.
.
What do I need to be reminded of? Where are the places that hurt and exhaust me that need to be refueled? What are the sacred struggles that are sometimes too hard to be talked about? Where can I pull and push and give and make space?
.
You are loved mama. You are seen. You are heard.
.
You are enough.
.
Let’s do this! ❤️💪🎉

What a beautiful day to read my favorite part where Odysseus visits the Underworld. #amreading #books #theodyssey #emilywilson

Just really enjoying rereading The Odyssey when I’m out and about. #theodyssey #books #amreading #emilywilson #classics

I've been so looking forward to reading this translation of The Odyssey, the first on English by a woman in all these years...seems impossible, but it's true.
There are multiple ways of reading literature. For something like this, I need a still mind to absorb and relish the words and language. I already know the story, I want to see through the eyes of this translator and see how she reveals the story, how she views these age-old characters. And so I begin this today :) so excited!

Some scholars believe that Mljet Island was chronicled in Homer's "Odyssey" as the place where Odysseus was held by the nymph, Calypso. There are worse places he could have been held captive.

72 • ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ • I never would’ve expected this book to give me such mixed feelings. I thought the translation was very readable and compelling and thoughtful. Her word choices (such as changing handmaiden to slave) highlighted some of the issues with how we’ve changed narratives in the past to soften our gaze towards problematic truths. If I’d read a different translation or maybe read this at a time when there was less misogyny in our world, I might’ve had an easier time reading past the sexism and focused more on the overall plot. But I read it now, and books serve a different purpose depending on when we read them. Aside from my issues, I did think the pacing was excellent (Emily Wilson matched the translation line for line) and the characters were interesting. Still have a lot to mull over, but would love to hear anyone else’s thoughts on this one!
