“I’ve always been a big reader and I love stories. I’m fascinated by who people are, and why they do the things they do. I love film as a medium for showing people the world around them, and I’m so inspired by the books I read and the films I watch. As a kid and teenager, everytime I’d see movie and walk out of the theater thinking, "so this happens to other people and other people feel this way,” it made life easier to understand and therefore I saw more and got more from life. Being able to be part of the the things that inspired me is absolutely amazing.“

MYTHOLOGY MEME [1/10] | NYMPH: CALYPSO.

CALYPSO
(Kalupsô). Under this name we find in Hesiod (Theog. 359) a daughter of Oceanus and Tethys, and in Apollodorus (i. 2. § 7) a daughter of Nereus, while the Homeric Calypso is described as a daughter of Atlas. (Od. i. 50.) This last Calypso was a nymph inhabiting the island of Ogygia, on the coast of which Odysseus was thrown when he was shipwrecked. Calypso loved the unfortunate hero, and promised him eternal youth and immortality if he would remain with her. She detained him in her island for seven years, until at length she was obliged by the gods to allow him to continue his journey homewards. (Od. v. 28, &c., vii. 254, &c.)
AEAEA (Aiaia). A surname of Calypso, who was believed to have inhabited a small island of the name of Aeaea in the straits between Italy and Sicily. (Pomp. Mela, ii. 7; Propert. iii. 10. 31.)
