  1. Phaedra.

    She wouldn’t want to change that name; it’s a perfectly good name, and she’s been happy with it for a couple of millennia.

    (Currently working — at least inside my head — on a blog post about what is widely regarded as the best treatise on rhetoric, and at the same time the best treatise on a particular sort of love … Plato’s Phaedras. Trying to make it not too sappy.)

  2. Phaedra is not bad at all.
    anybody else have a problem commenting this morning? Weird message about , phaw don’t even remember, but it claimed it was my fault and I was going to have to uninstall things from my ‘puter. Syeah right. I tried the old waiting game it it seemed to work.

    • Phaedra sounds good. I recently picked up Powers’ “The Stress of Her Regard” which involves lamia. You read that one?

      Happy Thanksgiving! Rock that WriMo!
