Among the most famous women to have ever lived, Cleopatra VII ruled Egypt for 22 years. She lost a kingdom once, regained it, nearly lost it again, amassed an empire, lost it all. A goddess as a child, a queen at eighteen, she was an object of speculation and veneration, gossip and legend, even in her own time. At the height of her power she controlled virtually the entire eastern Mediterranean coast, the last great kingdom of any Egyptian ruler. She died at thirty-nine, a generation before the birth of Christ. The sole female of the ancient world to rule alone and to play a role in western affairs. She nonetheless survives as a wanton temptress, not the last time a genuinely powerful woman has been transmuted into a shamelessly seductive one.
-Stacy Schiff, Cleopatra: A Life
Locks are gone.
To start spirit a new.
No defined by a hair style..
To truly see.
To simply be.
“We are travelers on a cosmic journey, stardust, swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share. This is a precious moment.”
— Paulo Coelho
