The glory of Poseidon.

It’s time for me to bow before the gods and admit I seek their assistance. That being said I’m taking no chances and appealing to both the main Greek and Roman gods of Poseidon and Neptune. I’m not completely comfortable with that because there are so many gods associated with water. This is a brief list of some of the ‘main’ ones.

In Aztec mythology

  • Tlaloc, god of thunder, rain, and earthquakes.
  • Chalchiuhtlicue, goddess of water, lakes, rivers, seas, streams, horizontal waters, storms, and baptism.

Canaanite mythology

Celtic mythology

Obviously the Celts felt like me and didn’t want to run the risk of missing someone out!

Then we have:

Egyptian mythology

  • Sobek, god of the Nile river, depicted as a crocodile or a man with the head of a crocodile.
  • Nephthys, goddess of rivers

Celtic mythology

(Now these guys had a monopoly!)

  • Aegaeon, god of violent sea storms and ally of the Titans
  • Amphitrite, sea goddess and consort of Poseidon
  • Anapos, water god of eastern Sicily
  • Ceto, goddess of the dangers of the ocean and of sea monsters
  • Eurybia, goddess of the mastery of the seas
  • Nerites, watery consort of Aphrodite and/or beloved of Poseidon
  • Nymphs
  • Poseidon, king of the sea and lord of the sea gods; also god of rivers, storms, flood and drought, earthquakes, and horses. His Roman equivalent is Neptune.
  • Achelous, Greek river-god
  • Hebe, Greek goddess of water and wine bearer of the Gods

The above is a list of Water Deities, not complete.

The wrath of Neptune.

Okay you are now wondering if I may have taken leave of my senses, limited though they may appear at times. Despite the ever-present brain fog and the feeling of an imploding skull (courtesy of Lyme disease) I am perfectly lucid at this time. I have no opportunity ton be otherwise and I shall explain.

You will recall my recent tribulations regarding my fluctuating water temperature in the shower, see here.  Since Ray’s birthday is coming up soon, (he has the fortune, or misfortune depending on your experiences of having his birthday on Father’s Day this year. That means there will be an explosion of people wherever we are likely to go. Not relishing the idea of crowds we have opted to spread our celebrations both before and after the actual day, today being the start.

In my semi conscious state I heard him getting into the shower, water running and, so I’m told nice and hot. Solar power is wonderful – yes?  The doors closed and suddenly there was absolute silence in the en-suite. No water sounds at all.  I am reliably told that he turned the taps on full, then off, and then back on again. Not a drop of water to be seen.

Right, a little poetic license never hurt anyone, especially when I’m not the target!  Quick dry and on with the jeans and jumper to check of all the taps. No, not a drop coming through. Hmm. Have a look outside.  Just up the road was…. you guessed it, the local council water guys. There had been a burst water pipe and so, bright and early there they were, all the mains turned off. A brilliant move, Sherlock!

It definitely made my morning more a more leisurely entry into the day. Meanwhile, an understandably disaffected hubby elected to make his morning vitamin smoothy. If he couldn’t be clean then he would be suitably fed. “Feed the man” if not meat then something good.

I didn’t laugh, I wasn’t completely awake enough to savour the devilish delight of the situation. That came later.

However, with our ongoing water issues, for which we are assured there is no rational cause, plus this latest debacle I feel the need to ask the gods, goddesses and all associated deities to please, “Give us a break” we only want to get clean. It’s not as though we live in the water or use more than our fair share. In fact we’re very conscious of water usage, something I still find difficult after my long hot baths in England (oh and here too when I can.)

I’m sure I’ve forgotten someone, I only hope they’ll see their way to grant me pardon. I would have listed everyone but it is a huge list… unbelievable long list. I suppose it goes back to the days when there were gods  for every occasion, tree, plant, flower and event. I know there are still ancient shrine in England where offerings are still laid.

Perhaps what I need is the Aboriginal deities explained so that if they are the ones we’ve upset I can ask them to take pity on us?  In the meantime I’ll keep my finger crossed that tomorrow morning will be like tonight, hot and deliciously relaxing. Ah, what bliss.

Oh, in case you were wondering we had a delightful afternoon, visited one of my crystal haunts, went to a new shopping centre, had a beautiful meal out before coming home and putting our feet.  Tomorrow is another day.
