Let’s Get It Started
- January 3, 2013
First words =) What is Artemisia Absinthium? It corresponds “Pelin” in Latin =) Guess why I have a Latin version of my name? … because, this is the name of a herb. I haven’t tried it yet, but Wikipedia says that the taste of this plant is sharp. It was used for medicine in the early times. It sounds ironic but, it has been used to produce a highly alcoholic beverage (Absinthe) for centuries as well. And yes, you are right. If you are interested in Greek mythology, the name of the herb comes from the goddess Artemis. She is the goddess of hunting, wilderness and wild animals. You may click on the links for further information.
After the introduction, I would like to say that I am very excited to share thoughts and information via here (Yes, finally I am able to write more than 140 characters C=). That was a dream for me for a long time. After I had been motivated by Sertalp (my best friend and husband), I wanted to start writing a few words with the early days of the new year.
I wish you all a happy and wonderful new year with full of fun =)
