    I blame society and reality TV.

    I love what EA Robinson I've read. It's where I got the "bubble work" reference, plus there's always the ending to Lancelot.

    ...Over the land
    Around him in the twilight there was rest.
    There was rest everywhere; and there was none
    That found his heart. "Why should I look for peace
    When I have made the world a ruin of war?"
    He muttered; and a Voice within him said:
    "Where the Light falls, death falls; a world has died
    For you, that a world may live. There is no peace.
    Be glad no man or woman bears for ever
    The burden of first days. There is no peace."

    A word stronger than his willed him away
    ... All alone he rode that night,
    Under the stars, led by the living Voice
    That would not give him peace. Into the dark
    He rode... Under the stars,
    Alone, all night he rode, out of a world
    That was not his, or the King’s; and in the night
    He felt a burden lifted as he rode,
    While he prayed he might bear it for the sake
    Of a still face before him that was fading,
    Away in a white loneliness. He made,
    Once, with groping hand as if to touch it,
    But a black branch of leaves was all he found.

    Now the still face was dimmer than before,
    And it was not so near him. He gazed hard,
    But through his tears he could not see it now;
    And when the tears were gone he could see only
    That all he saw was fading, always fading;
    And she was there alone. She was the world
    That he was losing; and the world he sought
    Was all a tale for those who had been living,
    And had not lived. ...
    But the Voice within him said: "You are not free.
    You have come to the world’s end, and it is best
    You are not free. Where the Light falls, death falls;
    And in the darkness comes the Light." He turned
    Again; and he rode on, under the stars,
    Out of the world, into he knew not what,
    ...He rode on into the dark, under the stars,
    And there were no more faces. There was nothing.
    But always in the darkness he rode on,
    Alone; and in the darkness came the Light.
    Hmmm. Has anyone read Kay's "The Fionavar Tapestry"?

    Dear Sir,

    Do you think that threads such as this would be a nice feature if more people started them. Sort of a way to get to know them better?

    Thank you for your time,

    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    That was stupid.

    Please rephrase.

    I think Richard Cory killed himself because he was hurting and alone, and he wanted the pain to stop. The community used him to fulfill their need to make idols of people, but cared nothing for him as a person. This alienated him further, making him feel even more alone and misunderstood.

    What did Italians eat before the tomato was imported from the new world? It's pretty much the unifying, essential feature of most of their cuisine.

    That and pasta. (Of course they learned to make pasta from China.)
