Healthy Mind Within a Healthy Body

Terpsichore is one of the Nine Muses of Ancient Greece. She is the Muse of Singing and Dancing, and as such she is the protector of those arts.  

The blessings of Terpsichore were sought at the Olympic Games in Ancient Greece.

The Games first began in 776 BC in Ancient Olympia.

At that time in Olympia, spirit and physical strength were admired and praised above all other qualities. In other words, a healthy mind inside a healthy body.

I am dedicating this embroidery -- which was displayed at my exhibition during the 2004 Athens Olympic Games -- to America's President-elect Barack Obama.
