Myth – September Heights – Day 20

D’Aulaires’ art brought hope

from myth; hours with my comb–

where’s my golden hair?

Sif's Golden Hair

Sif’s Golden Hair

Growing up I loved D’Aulaires’ Norse Gods and Giants. Of course my favorite was “Sif’s Golden Hair” because my middle name is Sif. Sif has beautiful blond hair that Loki chops off one night. Sif’s husband, Thor, is furious and demands that Loki replace it, which he does—with real gold.

I never did give up on golden hair—but now I know enough to get it from my hairdresser, Michael!

(See those eyebrows on the second page? That’s my husband after taking a kerjillion photos to get the pose right. 🙂 Thanks, George!)
