“It’s crazy not only that they both exist right now as such perfect human specimens, but I don’t know how they do it. They’re incredible, all of it in one package. And then the fact that they work so well together, it’s really romantic in the best way.“ - Kathryn Hahn
History forgets more than it remembers
Invents more than it ever knew.
History gave me many names,
Dubbed me many things–
In the same breath as they glaze over Paris’ lust
And Aphrodite’s vanity,
They wash away my truth;
In the same way they glorify the thousand ships launched for my beauty,
They mythicise my existence;
They forget I was a Queen,
A warrior in my own right.
History is mistaken:
I am not a myth.
I am strength and I am guilt;
Prize and cargo;
Noble and broken
“I have her starting facing the other direction because I want her to be facing in the past but she turns her head towards the future. It was just a small symbolic gesture for respecting her past but looking forward to her future.” - Lori Nichol
