One version suggests that Hypnos lived in the cave under one Greek island, Lemnos, and that through his cave the river of forgetfulness, Lethe, used to flow. Hypnos was married to the youngest of the Graces — Pasithea or Pasithee , a deity of hallucination or relaxation, depending on the interpretation. There were rumors well, they exist even in mythology! The myth says that Oneiroi lived at the shores of the Ocean in the West, in the cave close to Hades. The cave had two gates — one made of the buckhorn the other of the ivory — so that they could choose what dreams to send.
The latter was believed to be the gate for the false dreams. But before they were able to act, their father Hypnos had to do the work, putting people to sleep. There are many tales related to Hypnos. One of the most known was related to Zeus, the mighty God, who had the influence over everything and anything. But Hypnos turned out to overpower him, and not only once. And both times Hera was involved. The first time, Hera was so angry with Hercules and wanted to torture him, but Zeus was not supposed to see it.
So, she asked Hypnos to do his deeds and he did. When Zeus woke up, he was so enraged and went on to look for Hypnos. But when he found him in the arms of his mother, Zeus gave up the revenge and only warned Hypnos not to try something similar again. But the temptation stroke again. During the Trojan War, Hera had her own ideas again. She wanted to help the Achaeans who were losing the war at one point, and for that she needed Zeus to be distracted.
Thus, she asked Hypnos for the same favor again: to put Zeus to sleep so she could proceed with her plans. Hypnos was very reluctant to mess again with the father of the gods, and Hera tried to offer him various appealing gifts that he refused. Finally, they agreed: Hypnos would get Pasithea as his bride. So, Hera transformed Hypnos into a bird. Hypnos — bird flew to Poseidon to ask him to help the Achaeans since Zeus was asleep. Poseidon did help the Greeks, and the war changed its course.
That picture is really beautiful, I agree with Kierra,and I like how the writer gave you a family tree, I needed that!
I think Hypnos may be my favorite god so far! Because after all, I like to sleep late…LOL. Thank you so much for your comments. Start with watching at least six Hilton and six Hyatt buses go by in wait of courtesy van. Get to the hotel and a very nice but clearly frazzeled desk clerk waives you off for a minute while bemoaning the down computer.
while gods sleep
In response to quick comment about the van, she quickly in sympathy gives breakfast, drink coupon and club room. Get to the room needing to clear some email before sleep and the hotel password doesn't work on several tries. Call to desk and told the overall hotel computer problem probably is affecting the room. To sleep. Early awakening to get emails out and not working again. No success after several tries. Call to desk Okay, time to get exercise and breakfast. Next need to plunge the toilet. Guy is there in seconds with crazy big contraption that gave the feeling he's pretty much full time on plunging.
Exercise room okay. Breakfast at the club room sounded nice, but ridiculously small and about 15 people virtually filled all seating. He's on the phone and interrupts for attractive woman in front of me and doesn't react for me.
I go to the desk and he starts disparaging me for not accommodating him. He continues but finally relents after i asked for a manager. Desk manager comes out and starts apologetic for all she has heard about for my room and wants to forget charges or give me points. I said, as I feel, tat i used the room and just wanted the services I contracted for.

I was fine paying for the room. She said she was giving me I'm pretty sure I heard 25, points. I walked off to the rent a car thinking "Hey, that was nice and real concern".
Sleep Is God’s Gift
I return and she said she had given me 10, points. The hotel 9except maybe the plumbing could be a quality, well run facility in a great convenience location. I tried it versus previous very happy use of the Westin and others. Several choices and this Crowne Plaza per this experience needs refinement of services to be competitive. Again, the desk people were overall very nice and the issues all small, but mounted to great unnecessary pain. I am very sorry to hear that you were generally disappointed with your stay.
