This is why textoftheday has been on hold. We gave in to the force majeure and saw our friend Jane Moody out of this world. Today's entry marks a moment of imaginary witness, a meeting of hands as life becomes death. It is a detail from an Ancient Greek funerary relief, now in the Keramikos cemetery in Athens. Hands receive and enfold the dead one as she passes into the underworld.
