Seven Dead at Taliesin
In Episode 46, we relive a somewhat famous crime involving the noted architect Frank Lloyd Wright and the night that his apparently crazed butler -- yes, the butler did it! -- slaughtered seven people at Wright’s Wisconsin rural home he named Taliesen after the ancient Welsh poet, and built as a hide-away for himself and the love of his life, Mamah Borthwick, who was among the dead.
This episode comes with a vocabulary word. Wright and Mamah referred to their flight from their former lives as their “hegira,” which Websters defines as a journey especially when undertaken to escape from a dangerous or undesirable situation. It also refers to a period of Islamic history when Muhammad's departure from Mecca to Medina in AD 622 was prompted by the opposition of the merchants of Mecca and marking the consolidation of the first Muslim community. So when you make a journey marking a significant change in your life situation, you can refer to it as your hegira.
