Nothin’ but Blue Skies from Now On
Zeus, Greek god of the sky, surveyed his creations from Mytikas Peak, feeling discontent at the view.
He caught sight of Athena. “Come, I have a quandary.”
Athena’s beautiful azure eyes met those of her father.
“If you could change one thing about my creation,” said Zeus, “what would it be?”
Athena, wrapped in her own thoughts, took a moment to respond. “The sky is too grey—make it the shade of my eyes. The sky will be Athena blue,” she said vainly.
Zeus made the adjustment. “Or perhaps,” he laughed, “We could call your eyes sky blue.”
