STORY OF THE LOVE RABBIT

-Do you love me? - Alice asked.

-No, I don't love you .- replied the White Rabbit.

Alice frowned and started rubbing her hands nervously, as she always did when she felt hurt.

-Here, you see? - said the White Rabbit- Now you may be wondering what your fault is, why I can't love you at least a little, what makes you so imperfect, fragmented. Precisely for this reason I cannot love you. Because there will be days when I will be tired, angry, with my head in the clouds and I will hurt you. Every day it happens to trample feelings out of boredom, carelessness, incomprehension. But if you don't love yourself at least a little, if you don't create an armor of pure joy around your heart, my weak darts will become lethal and destroy you.
The first time I met you I made a pact with myself: I would stop myself from loving you until you first learned to feel precious to yourself. So Alice no, I don't love you. I can not do that.

FAUN COSPLAY

  1. Today we will talk about the Faun, which in Roman mythology was considered a creature half goat and half man. His figure Corresponds to the god Pan, he was the protector of the woods and the inhabitants and the god of agriculture and pastures.

    Faun loved to woo the beautiful nymphs, to hunt, but he did not disdain to frighten the men who passed near the woods where they lived. The Romans imported this god from Greece into their culture, where he was known as God Pan and became so important that he was worshiped as one of the main deities!
 
In Greek mythology Faun was a creature half man and half goat, God of the countryside and the woods and protector of all their inhabitants. He was a good and peaceful God. In Medieval Culture, in the Middle Ages, the Faun was considered and known as a man – beast or Satyr, moreover and was endowed with superhuman strength. Its natural habitat was the wood, but they rarely came out of it, if they did so it was only to attack the flocks of sheep and herds of oxen.
The faun is also one of the most intelligent beasts and used its strength to use weapons, including heavy clubs and clubs. His aggressive attitude led him to be hated and fought by medieval men. In honor of the god Faun, the Lupercalia were celebrated, purifying feasts that consisted of driving away two groups of priests in the forests, frighteningly made up and dressed in the skins of sacrificed animals. The only temple dedicated to him in Rome, the Temple of Faun, was located on the Tiber Island. In the first centuries of the Christian era, many pagan deities were demonized and fauns were associated with nightmare demons. Later the faun became the devil-type figure.
In the second chapter of the Spyro dragon saga, titled Spyro: Ripto’s Rage !, there are several female Fauns. The main one is undoubtedly Elòra, Spyro’s friend and helper, who shows herself as a woman with legs, hooves and a ponytail. In the world of Colline Frattura, on the other hand, together with some Satyrs, other female Fauns appear, made curious by the yo-yo they play continuously with. They appear in God of war II where, unlike the Satyrs, they appear as creatures with goat legs but with undead torso. Appears in the video game The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
Sometimes Faun made his voice resound in the woods and sent prophetic dreams to those who lay in incubation or were exalted by ecstasy. He was also the inventor of the ancient Saturn verses, on which Latin poetry is based. He was also considered the protector of domestic animals; he was called Luperco, as defender of the flocks from the assaults of the wolves.
The feast of the Faun is then replaced with the feast of Valentine’s Day, dedicated to lovers but without sexual connotations. During the same period, Fauns were also converted into non-evil beings, similar to goblins. For some, the Faun would have been the third prehistoric king of Italy, and would have introduced the cult of divinity and agriculture to the peninsula; after his death many honors were dedicated to him and he was venerated as god of the woods, protector of flocks and herds. According to other sources, the Fauns were ancient shepherds, inhabitants, at the beginning of the world, in the territory on which Rome was founded.
He is therefore a god of prophetic and poetic inspiration, like Pan and the Nymphs to which he is connected. It is also associated with panic fear (typical of Pan), due to frightening apparitions and supernatural voices. But his voice does not always inspire terror, on the contrary, sometimes it reassures and encourages, in fact he is a good and auspicious god, protector of domestic animals, flocks and crops. “Any kind of human wisdom is in vain” answers the Faun to those who question. Perhaps because the Faun is the bearer of the instinct that directly grasps itself and the world, without mental ruminations. This discovery does not give despair but only causes laughter, dance and the will to live. The Faun knows how everything is just a game; he is the god of the ring, the god of joy who returns to himself and becomes circular, bends into a perfect circle, a symbol of eternal return, the very image of eternity spread throughout the earth.
Legend has it that Faun was married to Fauna. The third king of Italy who taught the population about agriculture in rural communities. The celebrations of the Lupercalia are dedicated to him. The man half goat and half man is also the culprit in the death of Eurydice, loved by Orpheus, god of music, whom he went to recover in the underworld. In the legend it is said that Eurydice, collecting flowers in the woods, was noticed by the Faun who began to chase her to possess her. While the girl ran away, she was bitten by a snake and died.
