Cassandra’s Tears

Tears of joy, tears of pain, we are reflected in the salt-water pools we create. So let us build a fleet of paper boats and sail them on our ocean of indecision, laughing at the wind-whipped white-crested waves that would wash over us, drowning us in our own despair, yet somehow never vanquishing us in the end.

Elgin Marbles: A mini-saga

It is interesting that the defacement of statuary, often the only extant art of bygone cultures, is done for reasons of religious intolerance. Zeus no longer owns his head because Jesus became the godhead, and Buddha no longer looks over the hills and valleys of Afghanistan because Allah is great.
