Three part harmony
Many years ago, I “dated” a woman, Sagittarius, who was also known by a stage name, Clio. To me? Clio is the muse of epic poetry.
Apparently I misunderstood the Clio allusion. Supposed to be some queen. Missed that entirely.
Then, as previously linked, the lists of muses, along the Queen’s Walk, Southwark.
Clio Muse of Epic Poetry
I do enjoy a culture that works it into the mainstream. Always made me think of one “minor regional novelist” who had a mythical Texas town called Thalia.
One of the images from fishing the other day? A huge tanker, berthed along the inter-coastal waterway, and her title? Clio. Miserable picture, as that’s a camera for images of fish, and not much else. So it’s not a great shot. Still, piqued my curiosity.
That Clio is flagged out of Monrovia, ostensibly the capital of Liberia, a small country on the west side of Africa. The capital, Monrovia, named for the US President.
Why would a West Africa nation name a ship Clio? Epic poetry about history? I am completely unsure of the connection. Just a weird observation.
