This afternoon I found myself in need of a mood boost (it has been one of those days where pretty much everything that could go wrong or at least sideways, did.) I skipped lunch because I was in the middle of something, so my first attempt (perhaps misguided) at a mood enhancement was culinary
Research…OK, comment consensus on Facebook supports that dipping cookies into frosting is not inherently wrong. However…even my recently confirmed non-diabetic constitution can only take a small does of that (followed by an overwhelming urge to lock the door and take a nap!)
Seeking a less caloric means of attitude adjustment, I clicked over to Tumblr for a little visual lift…
Boom! Yeah, that’s definitely a cure for what ailed me. A panacea if you will...did you think you were getting away with out a classical connection? Pshaw! Panacea ( Πανάκεια)…the daughter of Asklepios (God of Medicine) and Epione (Goddess of Soothing), was the Greek goddess of Universal health and she was rumored to have a single potion which she used to heal all varieties of ailments. Well then, it’s often been cited that Richard Armitage also has a certain cuRAtive effect for a variety of ills….you might even say he’s a RAnacea! (Sorry…not sorry. I really have no control over it at this point…)
On my way over here to tell you all about it, I dropped in at SpReAd the Love to see how the poster drawing pool was shaping up and what I saw really did blow away any traces of ill humor. What I found were all kinds of new-to-me names reporting acts of kindness given and received…many of them demurring participation in the drawing, but wanting to share in the good will.
One of my very favorite things about this fandom is its capacity for kindness…in and among the admirers, analysts, admiring analysts and analyzing admirers of Richard Armitage, there are a lot of very real, very kind people just going about their business making their corner of the world a bit more pleasant everyday. Being witness to it never ceases to make my day brighter.
It’s a downright RAnacea!
