green, as in green house.
Chloe means green in ancient greek. at least that what SHE says. All I know is ...
In Greek mythology Dêmêtêr /də'miː.tɚ/ (Greek: Δημήτηρ, "mother-earth" or perhaps "distribution-mother", perhaps from the noun of the Indo-European mother-earth *dheghom *mater) is the goddess of grain and agriculture, the pure nourisher of youth and the green earth, the health-giving cycle of life and death, and preserver of marriage and the sacred law. She is invoked as the "bringer of seasons" in the Homeric hymn, a subtle sign that she was worshiped long before the Olympians arrived. The Homeric Hymn to Demeter has been dated to sometime around the Seventh Century BC. She and her daughter Persephone were the central figures of the Eleusinian Mysteries that also predated the Olympian pantheon.
thank you wikipedia.
of course, I could have done a big green bike. I had a sort of FLASH watching motorcycle races on telly when I was around 10. I remember thinking "wow, this bike is SO BIG and SO GREEN!". I owned 3 kawasaki's, two of them were repainted, none of them ever was green.
spring seems here for good and for the whole 3 days week-end. that can only mean RIDE, RIDE, cold wine and outside table at cafe. new life, an ode to the "bringer of season", "the health-giving cycle of life and death"
aha.. the irony, looks like a very colourfull friday.
have a good week-end, looks like my hang over finally dissolved, time to go out.
