Charites-The Three Graces
“To be creative means to be in love with life. You can be creative only if you love life enough that you want to enhance its beauty, you want to bring a little more music to it, a little more poetry to it, a little more dance to it.”
In Greek mythology, a Charis, or Grace, is one of three or more minor goddesses of charm, beauty, nature, human creativity, and fertility, together known as the Charites or Graces. The usual list, from youngest to oldest is Aglaea ("Splendor"), Euphrosyne ("Mirth"), and Thalia ("Good Cheer").
Originally considered the guardians of the vernal sweetness and beauty of nature, later they evolved to become the bestowers and protectors of everything graceful and beautiful. Beauty, adornment, and charm are all believed to come from the Graces, as well as the ability to recognize those attributes in everything arund us. In all things they were characterized as the spreaders of joy and enhancers of enjoyment of life.
Their influence is subtle, but profound. And they still radiate their gifts from the higher planes, waiting to manifest in those few who have the ears to hear, and the eyes to see.
