Beginning anew. It’s not quite 2011, but I’m already turning my back to 2010 and looking ahead. This blog is one step in that journey forward. New place. New name. It’s all symbolic.
Welcome to Ananke and Eos, named for two Greek goddesses, one from the Protogenoi pantheon, and the other, a Titan.
Ἀνάγκη, from the common noun ἀνάγκη, “force, constraint, necessity” (from Wikipedia). Ananke is destiny. She is fate. Ironically, I’m not sure how much I believe in her in that form. I might be too stubborn and obstinate to yield easily to the notion that something else, ultimately, has control. But consider her as a driving force, a need, a compulsion. Air. Dreams. A loving touch.
Eos. She is easier to understand, although sometimes as difficult to accept. Simply, she is the dawn. She is the breaking of the night into day. She is a beginning.
