I'm Kyrene Ariadne, Hellenic polytheist, vegan, geek, and crazy batshit redhead from Boston. My patron deities are Apollo, Dionysos, and Hermes and I am a student and practitioner of Southern Italian witchcraft (no, not Grimassi :P).
One of my best loved stories on Apollo:
To many Greeks, Apollo the Bright One, the Lord of the Silver Bow, was the most admirable of the gods. Apollo personified knowledge, beauty, and perfection. He was perpetually young, perpetually handsome, and wise without being dull. He advised humans to be moderate in all things, even though he himself sometimes got carried away in passionate love affairs. In fact, once his twin sister, Artemis, confronted him about this: "You're always talking about moderation," she said, "yet you're always falling passionately in love."
With a laugh, Apollo replied: "I teach moderation in all things - including moderation."
