ATALANTA AND THE GOLDEN APPLES
Writing MYTHS: Another character has stepped in! Nauplius, son of Poseidon; Nauplius, the navigator; Nauplius, the sailor! Tall, white, handsome, daring, Atalanta cannot take her eyes off him! I see Nauplius in a sailor’s suit. Most women of my age can recall when they saw their first sailor -- something about that uniform, more about the confidence and swagger. In his time, Nauplius wears almost nothing. He’ll take Atalanta to Lerna Springs where the race of her life awaits her.
