Dikê (JayLynn Watkins)

Staff Writer Author, snark extraordinaire, and eternal pessimistic-optimist, JayLynn Watkins is a lover of the written word. She even fancies herself a poetry, fiction, erotica, and romance author. When she is not channeling the goddess of justice or working on one of her writing projects, she can be found reading (probably an erotica or sci-fi title) or studying up on religions, myths, sociology, and human equity.

Restoring Balance: The Lure of Proximity

Dikê. Goddess of Justice.
Yes, the chick with the scales. I’m around to make sure mortals play fair with one another according to the rules and lawful decrees. When they don’t, I step in and handle the situation. Yes, that could involve making it messy, aka bloody.
Equity comes at a price.
Balance is worth the cost.
