Glouie glouie: Rompstals and skitty-vamps, spicotty forrels, hawseny, dirten mawkins and mommets clothed in libbets, wevets, auverlooked batches.
To quote the brilliant Donna Tartt (note to Donna if they happenstance to read this – hurry up with the next book – it has been in excess of ten years and I’m urgently yearning )
“An individual heart-shock. Your dream.
And I feel I have something very serious and urgent to say to you, my non-existent reader, and I feel I should say it as urgently as if I were standing in the room with you. That life – whatever it is – is short. That fate is cruel but maybe not random. That nature (meaning Death) always wins but that doesn’t mean we have to bow and grovel to it. That maybe even if we’re not always glad to be here, it’s our task to immerse ourselves anyway: wade straight through it right through the cesspool, while keeping our eyes and hearts open. And in the midst of our dying, as we rise from the organic and sink back ignominiously into the organic, it is a glory and a privilege to love what Death doesn’t touch. Insofar as it is immortal (and it is) I have a small, bright, immutable part in that immortality. It exists; and it keeps on existing. And I add my own love to the history of people who have loved beautiful things, and looked out for them, and pulled them from the fire, and sought them when they were lost, and tried to preserve them and save them while passing them along literally hand to hand, singing out brilliantly from the wreck of time to the next generation of lovers, and the next.”
