Welcome, Hera, Queen of the Olympian gods


1: Thank you so much for being here, Hera. I understand you’re a Queen of the Olympian gods. What are you goddess of?


Thank you so much for having me. I hold providence over two areas. I serve as Goddess of both marriage and childbirth.

2: Are you married?

I’m divorced. Anyone who knows about me will be well acquainted with my ex-husband’s many adulterous affairs. I finally decided I’d had enough and divorced him.

3: Do you have any children? If so tell us about them.

I have three wonderful children. The eldest is my son Hephaestus. He’s God of the Forge and all I can say is don’t believe everything hear about me and my son.

My second born is Ares God of War. I love him dearly but I do worry that he needs to seriously grow up.

The youngest is my only daughter, Hebe. She’s the Goddess of Youth and her personality very much fits her Goddess powers. All three are the center of my world.

4: Do you have any pets? If so, tell us about them.

I don’t have pets but I do have animals who are sacred to me. The peacock is a very sacred bird to me and if you want to stay on my good side you better be nice to these birds.

5: How about friends? Do you have a best friend?

I’m afraid I have very few friends. History has done me few favors. But I have one in particular who is my best friend and I cherish her. Iris is the Goddess of the Rainbow and my best friend in the whole world. I can always count on her.

6: So, I’m curious, why did you come down to earth?

Well, to be blunt the Gods are broke. Not many people worship us anymore and those that do stopped leaving us offerings of money. So, in order to make a living we’ve all come down to earth and taken jobs.

7: How do you like being on earth? Were you excited about coming here?

At first I was scared to be coming down here. I have never been on my own in eons of living. But now I quite like it and actually prefer my earth home to the palace on Mt. Olympus.

8: What do you do here on earth? To earn a living I mean. And where do you live?

Well, I decided not to use my marriage skills since my own marriage ended in divorce. Instead I became a midwife and opened up a practice right in my home in Vermont.

9: I’ve heard you were vindictive, is this true?

Again, don’t believe everything you hear. I did lots of things to try and fix my marriage to Zeus, but I never hurt anyone in the process.

10: Have you met anyone interesting since you’ve come here?

Oh yes. I have met two really scrummy guys. Both are single and for some reason both guys want me too. Time will tell though what will happen between us, if anything.

11: What’s the one thing you’d most like people to know about you?

I’m not vindictive. I have never hurt anyone while trying to get Zeus to stop his philandering. That’s most important to me.

12. What do you for fun and relaxation?

Sundays are my day off. Barring a call to a delivery I just like to stay home, sit on my porch swing and watch nature.

13. Is there anything else you’d like us to know about you?

Hmm let me think. Well, yes actually. Athena, Aphrodite and I did not cause the Trojan War. We actually had nothing to do with it in spite of what people say.

Thank you again for joining us today, Hera. To learn more about Hera, go to: Kat Holmes blog site. http://katluvr130.blogspot.com/

Great interview. I feel like I know Hera personally.

It was nice catching up again with you Hera. I like the approach you have to midwifery, and the gentleness you show for the pregant mother and soon-to-be-little-one. Anyone who watches the way your face beams as you bring a new life into the world, the way you hold that precious life, coudln't believe all that vindictive marlarky told about you. Anyway, keep up the good work, and World meet the REAL Hera.Isn't she a doll?

Okay Hera, Sweetie, you can stop giggling at me. You know how bad my eyesight is. I didn't see till it was sent that my comment was in Kat's name, not that she doesn't agree with everything I just commented, but you know what I ditz I can be sometimes about things like that. So let me make ammends and further praise you. By the way, anyway you can send some of that cooler, please tell me it's cooler, Vermont air down our way? We are SWELTERING here in New Jersey, and you being the QUEEN of all goddesses? Cool air? Pretty please?

Kat said...

That's Okay Mom, Hera and I have both gotten used to your idiosyncrasies. We love you anyway.

Lin said...

Well that's just plain rude!
