Hypnos (Ὕπνος) and Thanatos (Θάνατος) are, respectively, the personifications of sleep and non-violent death; the twin sons of the goddess Nyx, they live in the Underworld, in a place where the rays of the sun and the moon will never touch. Out of the two, Hypnos is said to be the gentler one, although both are ruthless in their own right.
So, hilariously ironic thing this morning. I was on my way to planned parenthood to get my birth control, when I drive past this guy 3 blocks from my apartment. I thought dude you are a long way from the clinic! I turned the corner and lo and behold, there is a women’s clinic in my backyard, unbeknownst to me! I could have saved some gas and gone to this closer place! I never would have known without the protesters there. Thanks, sign-holding guy!!!
