Happy Birthday Wonder Woman
On this day, in fictional comic-book history, an immortal warrior Princess was born…
Diaphanous silken banners flutter slowly in the breeze as we make our way through the tapestry of forests, mountains, and lakes that form the awe inspiring forgotten isle known as Themyscira. A warm breeze caresses our skin, and bird song greets our ears as we wend our way through the serene calm of the Amazon homeland.
Ancient baluster guide our journey flanking us on both sides, intricately carved with each vying for our attention with their Daedalian imagery of hellenic Gods and Amazons. Before us rise the majestic wrought marble gates that ultimately give way to the Elysian rapture that is the city-state of Themyscira itself, the elaborate Mycenean styled gate slowly unveils it’s secrets, ushering us through its magnificence and unto the celebrations beyond.
Welcome my awesomely affable Amazonian associates to the fabulously fictional birthday celebration of Princess Diana of Themyscira. Today, in Themysciran history, a baby Titan was born unto Amazon Queen, Hippolyta, a fledgling Amazon who would ultimately grow up into the world’s most significant and popular female Superhero, ambassador, peerless warrior, emancipator and illustriously influential icon to the masses.
Happy Birthday Diana, we raise a glass to many, many more mythical millennia in your illuminating presence…
