“I am Poseidon, EARTH SHAKER, RULER OF THE BOUNDLESS SEA, CREATOR OF STORMS, SWALLOWER OF SHIPS”
George O'Connor, Poseidon: Earth Shaker

“Orion never appreciated the wild places for what they are. Wild things need to be left free to preserve what makes them special.
He saw everything in the world around him as a trophy to collect. As something to possess. Even me. I am wild, untamed, unattached, unfettered. To love me is to appreciate that. And I am fortunate indeed to have many who love me.
Sometimes, to best tell your own story, you need it to be told by another.
I am the protector of women and the friend of young girls. The helper of childbirth, she who soothes. I am the caretaker of the wild places, the mountains, marshes, the pastures and wetlands.

I am Artemis, goddess of the wild hunt.”
George O'Connor, Artemis: Wild Goddess of the Hunt
