#blogjune End of Hecuba's Story

This is going to be the hardest #blogjune for me so I am going to get it over very quickly. This blog, Hecuba's Story, which I used for Web 2.0 and continued to use for general technology posts was named after my cat Hecuba. The reasoning behind it doesn't matter. You will note that the previous post to this one was in October 2010. The end of the feline Hecuba's story came on 3 November 2010 and I haven't been able to post here since. I tried a couple of times to do an Animoto tribute to her to post here but it hasn't quite happened. And maybe during June I will manage to achieve that.

Meanwhile by a very strange coincidence yesterday someone on Flickr accessed twice one of the series of photos I took of her after she had died! How amazing is that! The photo above (not the one viewed) shows her laid out in her shroud with flowers and one of her favourite plastic bag toys to play with in eternity. You can see her other gravegoods in Flickr and the lavender and daisy bushes that mark her spot.

So one Hecuba's story is finished, but the other Hecuba's story which involves the excitement of technological change lives on! And I am glad that the blog bears the name of the feline Hecuba who loved lying between me and my keyboard when I blogged!!
