About the image:
Telemachus and Mentor are the figures portrayed in the image. I thought this appropriate for both male and female bloggers, as the Mentor is actually Athena. Athena became known in Greek mythology as the Goddess of Wisdom. In Homer’s Odyssey, she takes on the male form to guide Telemachus, on his journey to find news of his father, Odysseus, a legendary Greek king of Ithaca.
