I haven’t written on my beloved site in almost a year. I feel some shame in this as I spend a great deal of time constructing the site and writing its content. But life happens when you’re busy making plans. Tragedy struck me and my family and wouldn’t let go of her grip until recently. Tragedy must be a woman as only a woman would know the depths of human sorrow. Perhaps tragedy in its full glory was born when Pandora open the jar.* But just remember hope was still in the jar when she closed it. Hope could not escape.
* Most people refer to the jar as a box as the word “pathos” was misinterpreted by a scholar in the 16th century.
