The Muse

The sheer variety of symbols and artefacts in use across the ages and geographies does not necessarily point to a multitude of assumptions and values from which they spring. The study of mythology and folklore then, is a reverse approach to anthropology. This blog is dedicated to my favourite symbols, tales and artefacts - both ancient and contemporary.

Criminal Proceedings

For the love of God, stop this madness, this tarring and feathering of a brother at fault. Stop this violence that springs from retaliation.

He who has shown courage in confession must warrant repayment by compassion.

Stir not the hornet's nest, in search for justice. For rest assured that thou shalt receive justice in full. For he who points a finger at another will find three pointed back at himself.

It is often not out of a search for redemption that a confession comes forth, but a carrot in the form of diminished punishment.

Compassion is to be earned, and a mere act of saving oneself from further tortures does not deserve compassion yet.
