Thank you Blue. Yes there is a cause for tragedy, also for victory, joy, freedom, justice, accomplishment, and all other amazing aspects of life on Earth. The inscrutability of it depends on one's ability to perceive Divine influence on the earthly plane ( aka "art" ), and that as you have noted, varies considerably among individuals.
I'm pleased that you got it though. I was beginning to think I'd lost my touch.
