Magic Myths

We have recently had the opportunity to see an English show based on Greek mythology. Patrick, the storyteller, tells us two interesting myths with great wit and fun: ‘King Midas’ and ‘Medusa’. King Midas is popularly remembered for his ability to turn everything he touched into gold. However, there is a moral behind the story: “Gold (money) can’t buy happiness.”

On her behalf, Medusa is punished by the goddess Athena for being arrogant and vain. From this story, we all should learn to be modest and respect other people. Good advice!
