The myth of Pandora sounds alot like Eve.

Poor little Pandora the first mortal woman on earth was bestowed with beauty from Aphrodite, Hermes gave her cleverness, Athena taught her how to spin, Apollo taught her how to sing. But Zues also made her mischievous and idle. The Gods gave Pandora a exquisite box as a gift before she came to Earth and she was told never to open this box. By and by Pandora wanted to be good but was so curious she couldn't even sleep at night, finally she took the gold key from her neck and opened the box just to peek inside. Bad move, Old Age, Sickness, Insanity, Pestilence, Vice, Passion, Greed, Crime, Death, Theft, Lies, Jealousy, Famine and all the rest were unleashed upon the world, Hope was at the bottom of the box (so it's not so bad I guess.)

My box gives Pandora a fair chance, it is transparent so you can see the bad spirits inside and it is sealed shut there is no easy way to open it.

Summer is over old man winter is knocking it's going to be a long cold night, burrrrrrrrr.

I like the box, lovely colors, scary story, especially since most people don't know that the Greeks and Romans did not consider hope a Good thing - but the greatest evil of them, which is probably why they thought Paul was nuts when he said "of all these abide faith, hope and love - and the greatest of these is love." But then they were very testosterone (though fond of gay sex) driven countries. love, yobs

My blog is on Bogger and is called Not In Charge through some sub place called Dashboard? Anyway, see if you can find it. I have one entry on there but am working on "Fierce Happiness."
