This is a lovely drawing, Beth, and it conveys the spirit of the place.

And I love the notion that interruptions are grist for the mill. Yes! A good one to carry with me as I head into the meditation practice I lead at my synagogue on Friday mornings.

I prefer the drawings that suggest the space, and invite me to enter the essence of it, rather than prescribing the way every detail is.

There are certain sounds that move my heart- like children paying in the schoolyard across the street- and others that are indeed challenging, like a phone conversation.

Thomas Merton could also have said ".....escape others, but to cause them to join us."

I love this, Beth, both the drawing and the words that accompany it. Yes, yes, yes.

Who was Cassandra?

  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.
