I know I have already posted about Her before, but couldn't resist doing it again for the ABC fun.
This sweet Goddess is one of my favorites, and I have Her images in my place along with Hestia. My favorite is still the one Lucas colored years ago:
Gaia is the Greek Goddess of Earth. She is the daughter of Chaos, and is believed to be the mother as well as the wife of Uranus (the sky) and Pontus *the sea). According to the Greek mythology she is a primeval goddess who was the Mother of other Gods, and the 12 Titans: Oceanus, Phoebe, Rhea, Coeus, Crius, Cronus, Hyperion, Iapetus, Tethys, Theia, Themis, Mnemosyne.
The Greeks worship Gaia even today, and the ancient Greeks considered her as a Mother of all things, believing that every movable and living beings sprang up from her.
I see Lovelock's Gaia Theory as something obvious... Being a pagan mom, it's just natural for me to feel our planet as a living organism. We know well how She answers to the pain that some stupid humans inflict to Her, and how sweetly She feels the love most of us give to Her.
