the gods

Ella and I have had some interesting conversations these days.

It all started with her recent addiction to the Disney movie, Hercules. Because of this movie we've had to discuss the idea of death and where our souls go; the gods who live in the heavens and how the greeks believed in so many gods; the difference between a god and a mortal; the role of the fates and how they decide who will die; and, of course, why Meg couldn't live in the heavens with Hercules and how he gave up his godhood just to be with her (it was very alarming to Ella that Meg wouldn't end up with Hercules in the end!).

And then the conversation always shifts to which dress she wants to wear for dress-up time. :)
