The Gorgon

Currently, the voting tally for my Love Referendum stands at:

Today’s vote has been cast (which isn’t yet included in the above tally!) by one of the Gorgons, those fearsome creatures that have snakes instead of hair and a stare that would turn a man to stone in an instant. Now rumour has it if you were to see a Gorgon, a reflection of one, or an image of one, you will become a pile of pebbles as soon as they see you. I can’t really believe that rumour myself, as who has ever heard of an image that can see? I know that some of those paintings in haunted houses have eyes that follow one as one wanders around the place willy nilly, but we aren’t in a haunted house, so that doesn’t count. (I mean, I may be, but that is by the by!) I digress as I link this post to my favourite time of the year, Hallowe’en, and not Valentine’s (which is the true purpose of the Referendum; to see once and for all whether love is a good thing or not).

Well, I’ve not been turned to stone, and I hope neither have you. Apologies if that has happened.

To balance the stones
Takes time, patience and effort
Allow the balance

The Gorgon votes: NO

The Gorgon says: “How can a cold-blooded Gorgon with a heart of stone possibly vote any other way?”

Icy cold and to the point.  I shouldn’t really have expected anything more.

Another vote will be along tomorrow.

    The blood of a Gorgon was also said to have magical powers. 🙂 ❤

    Blessed Be! 🙂 ❤

      I suppose that would be to cleanse the venom, Prenin, after they have bit their tongue. They have many tongues to bite, don’t you know?
