clinging to the shadows of the days of yore

15 Jan

I would dearly love to read Fountainhead by Ayn Rand once again.

Six years ago, I wrote:

Another interesting character in the book is Dominique Francon.  She is unlike any other female character I have ever read about. Her acts and deeds are all strange.  For instance, in one part of the book, she is describing a statue she liked very much.  She bought it, and after owning it, she destroyed it, saying that in doing so, no one else besides her will ever see it or own it again. This is intriguing, and after reading about this, I started asking several questions. What exactly did she mean by doing that, and why did she do what she did? I have not been able to draw any clear conclusions, but what comes clearly to me is that Dominique knew her own mind perfectly, and she was self-possessed and self-controlled except for certain times.

I understand now, not because I have become any wiser, but because of the insight that comes having lost the glamour of naiveté that was before my eyes and shrouding my mind.

One sometimes doubts that the sacrifice was worth it.

Anyway, life at home is fair too entertaining to be spent idling online and so, I bid my fair readers adieu, until February comes and I find myself once again, flying far and away to the Land Down Under. ^_~

twist within twist within hidden meanings…all contribute to the greater whole?
