I love Mythology, always have, can't remember when I didn't. My name is Mariah Matthews. I live in the USA, and this blog is about a novel that I'm currently writing, working title: : MYTHS OF HELICON MOUNTAIN.

Done in theory…, the first segment of Chapter 7 ends with Urana’s 2nd son Orus finding Narcissus’s flute floating in the reeds near the edge of Clear Blue Lake. I added this because Orus needs a flute in Part Two, Search for Pegasus, and so the stage is set—one musician reaches the end of his days, another musician picks up a flute without a clue as to where he’s going with it.  Serendipity…, does anyone really know where they’re going? “To hell if I don’t change my ways” people used to say when someone asked that question. I liked the way the old folks never gave an answer unless they were pressed for one.
