Theoi Meteoroi

I have always been particularly drawn towards classical Greek mythology. The manner in which the Greeks deified the natural world enchanted me as a child. For a culture without the jaded facts of modern science, personification seems like an ideal way to approach and understand the temperamental nature of the sky.
