The Charites (or TheGraces) were three happy Goddesses of Beauty. They were named: Aglaia, Euphrosyne and Thalia. They were the first ones to welcome Aphrodite when she was blown to shore by the East Wind. The three of them rode in a chariot pulled by white geese. Their name in Greek would have been the Charites. They were the daughters of Zeus and Eurynome. Originally (as in pre-classical mythology), they were goddesses of fertility and nature and were much more closely associated with the underworld and the Eleusinian mysteries. (x)
So much sadness in her eyes. I watch a documentary about her a few weeks ago. It was about notes from her diary and about her life. She was such an incredibly smart women. She hated the dumb blonde she always played in movies but they were the only movies she was getting offered at the time. The men in the industry didn’t take her seriously. The documentary made me cry. So many people are quick to call her “stupid” or “slut” but these are people that no NOTHING about her or her story.
