A drink then another drink
My friend's seem buzzed but I'm not feeling it
A drink then another drink
I'm mad now this ain't doing shit
A drink then another drink
Waking up no memory but at least I fell asleep. (Kid.D.actor- if you love me thank you) photo credit @direbaba

THE SEIRENES (Sirens)
In Greek mythology, the #Sirens were three dangerous sea #Nymphs who lured sailors to their death with a bewitching song. ••
•• In early #GreekArt, Sirens were represented as large birds with women's heads. Later, they were represented as female figures with the legs of birds, with or without wings, playing a musical instruments. •• In his notebooks, Leonardo da Vinci wrote of the Siren: "The siren sings so sweetly that she lulls the mariners to sleep; then she climbs upon the ships and kills the sleeping mariners." ••
•• In #Homer's #theOdyssey, Odysseus in his wanderings through the Mediterranean, on the advice of the #goddess Circe, had all of his sailors plug their ears with beeswax and then tie him him to the mast of his ship. Thus, Odysseus was able to listen to the sirens song without casting himself into the waters to drown. ••
••• In early christianity, Sirens continued to be used as a symbol for the dangerous temptation embodied by women regularly throughout Christian art of the #medieval era; however, in the 17th century, some Jesuit writers began to assert their actual existence, including Cornelius a Lapide, who said of woman, "her glance is that of the fabled basilisk, her voice a siren's voice—with her voice she enchants, with her beauty she deprives of reason—voice and sight alike deal destruction and death."[40] Antonio de Loreaalso argued for their existence, and Athanasius Kircher argued that compartments must have been built for them aboard Noah's Ark.

UMASKHENKETHE LIKHAYA LAM
Unomgcana or Umaskhenkethe is the Xhosa word for the plastic mesh bag, which is made in China. Unomgcana means ‘the one with lines’ and Umaskhenkethe means ‘the traveler’.These bags are ubiquitous and go by many names: the ‘Ghana must go home’ bag in Nigeria, Bangladeshi bag in the UK, Turkish bag in Germany, Mexican bag in the US and Guyanese Samsonite in the Caribbean. These bags have become global symbols of migration - not only across borders but also within countries.
South African Photographer Nobukho Nqaba reflects " This series of photographs reflects on my memories of growing up using the bag. #ghanamustgo #africa #artfestival #africanart #Acdf2017 #ThisIsAfrica #AfricanArt #AfricanCulture #worldcongress #designAfrica
