On Choice

One would prefer fatalist as opposed to suicidal, I suppose.

For the sake of argument, envisage yourself with a weapon to your head. It is an old recurrent theme and you wait for it to pass you by. And while it does, you try and imagine what it must feel like to press the trigger. And then, you realise that it is by not imagining anything at all do you experience what it is like ... having done so. You feel it slip through your tightly clenched miserly claws ... there you have it and here you don't.

Fever-pitch voices in the head. A running commentary and a paranoid litany. The flood broke banks again today ...

What do the voices say? - " ... And then he shot himself ... And then he shot himself ... And then he shot himself ... ". Urging the audience on, inexorably, to the inevitability of it all. How long can you resist such temptation of release? And why should you?


Someone I care for deeply disturbed me equally deeply, some time ago, when she said that she could not bear the thought of deformity / disease / handicap in her partner. She would find it impossible to live with such a person. I left it as an expression of rare honesty and truthfulness, giving it no further thought. Yes it disturbed me that much and I cared for her as much.

Not so surprisingly, she was surprised and offended when I happened to, off-handedly, not so long ago, remark that if something did not appeal to her, it should not be expected that she bother to understand it. She told me that I had dug my own grave.
