Galatea was a sea nymph who loved Acis, but was loved by the giant Polyphemus. Polyphemus was jealous of Galatea's love for Acis, so he killed him with a boulder. Distraught, Galatea then turned his blood into the river Acis. The Acis River flowed past Akion (Acium) near Mount Etna in Sicily.
Allow the subtle things to be glorious. Flip fear into courage. Sweetly anticipate nothing in particular. Be rocked and riveted by the ordinary. Think poetically. Look for the beauty. Create magic. Be love. - Victoria Erickson
