and the Wannabes
Midas was a legendary King of old who had hospitably entertained the tutor of Dionysus, the Greek god, when he had lost his way. As recompense, Midas was permitted by Dionysus to name his reward. King Midas asked “only” that whatever he touched might turn to gold! His fervent prayer was granted!! But when he found that the very water he tried to drink, and the meat he tried to eat, had turned to gold in his mouth, he pleaded with Dionysus to free him from his “gift.” He was than allowed to wash himself in the river Pactōlus.
To be continue. Stay Tuned!
