{March 20, 2007}   pathos & ethos

those who subscribe to my blog might not get a feed update on the name change of this blog.

pathos: the quality or power in an actual life experience or in literature, music, speech, or other forms of expression, of evoking a feeling of pity or compassion.

ethos: the character or disposition of a community, group, person, etc.

borrowing from the bard, “all the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages.

when i analyse life, or events in life, i tend to do so at one removed, as if it is merely a case study. and since ethos affects pathos, and since my musing often revolve around these themes, i’ve aptly renamed this blog pathos and ethos. soliloquy would have been my other choice.

on a side note: you know how people have different bags for different occasions/purposes? well, i have different pencil boxes for different occasions/purposes.  stationary girl is my trade mark.
