I liked the story and hated all my comment thoughts. Yeah, life hurts then you die. With just this mantra, the whole thing seems totally futile. There are other mantras, we just don’t believe in them like this one. We are determined in this, at least today.

The name ‘Asgor’ begged a Google search which turned up the following translated essay. I’m not sure that was deliberate, I’ll assume so [Asgor is the God of death, the darkness, the despair and the fear.]

Galadriel who handles Frodo’s ring, has an epiphany, and says, “Instead of a Dark Lord, you would have a queen, not dark but beautiful and terrible as the dawn! Tempestuous as the sea, and stronger than the foundations of the earth! All shall love me and despair!”


"breath sorrow"

Good one. Oh, some people just make you ache like that.


Weird, Asgor is a name I came up with off the top of mah head. Thank you, Karindira.


The top of your head wants to watch the Lord of the Rings, apparently.

Hi, I'm writing from Open Source, a public radio show based in Boston, and distributed around the country.

Two years ago, we started what's become a yearly tradition for us called Blogsday: http://www.radioopensource.org/blogsday-2007/

Based loosely on Bloomsday, which celebrates James Joyce's "Ulysses" as an evocation of the world in a single day (in Joyce's case, June 16, 1904), the idea is to create a mosaic portrait by reading excerpts of blog posts written all over the world on the same day, for one night, for one hour, on live radio. This year, we chose this past Tuesday -- June 5 -- to collect posts from, and the show will air Thursday night from 7-8pm EST.

I'm writing because we really liked your post on the 5th (a listener brought it to our attention), and it's on the shortlist to be included among our Blogsday Best of the June 5th Blogosphere collection.

On Thursday night, we'll bring in two accomplished and agile actors to read excerpts from our collection of posts on the air. I can't guarantee that your post will make it onto the show at this point (we're still knee-deep in our favorites), but you're a finalist.

We can't pay anything -- this is public radio after all -- but we can guarantee a respectful treatment, a national radio audience, and a link on our blog.

Let me know if you have any questions. I'll try to send another email if I can confirm that your post will definitely be on the show beforehand, but if things get too crazy we may just let you know after the fact.
