Talking about dwelling on beautiful things slowly, I'm quite besotted with my new grandson 😊

"...You have asked me what I would do and what I would not do. I will not serve that in which I no longer believe whether it call itself my home, my fatherland or my church: and I will try to express myself in some mode of life or art as freely as I can and as wholly as I can, using for my defence the only arms I allow myself to use; silence, exile and cunning... I will tell you also what I do not fear. I do not fear to be alone or to be spurned for another or to leave whatever I have to leave. And I am not afraid to make a mistake, even a great mistake, a lifelong mistake and perhaps as long as eternity too. I will take the risk..."

p.238-9, 2012, Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man , James Joyce

I had so many "same here" moments when watching this film especially when he decided to not publish again ...

31st May, 1973
E kept many of her friendships in 'watertight compartments'...there is a sort of one-upmanship among those who loved her to prove, if not how much they meant to her, at least how much she meant to them... I do not doubt for one moment that E loved me more than any living creature... but she is not here to talk to me now and the others are. There is something slightly chilling about their knowingness. If I had had the title of 'Husband'.

4th July, 1973
What should I do that I have done on arrival in every transatlantic migration for thirty years or more, send a cable to E, 'Arrived safely missing you terribly, love C.' And in a few days time there would be the airmail letter on the hall table with her writing on the envelope, already talking of plans for our next being together.

30th July 1973
...I sorted and read my diaries of E's death... I am never to recover or cease to feel the absence and the pain till I cease feeling anything.

25th September 1973
I am rudderless without E.

15th December 1973
Each night for the last three nights I have dreamed of E... in my dream I have in some way neglected or angered her or she has retreated from me, so that last night I dreamt that I stood facing a row of her books saying, 'perhaps I can find her here since she eludes me and I elude her.'

19th December 1973
Awoke in our old apartment in New York to a backwash of self-disgust that nearly knocked me out... I need to know again from her that I was her life. I would give anything I have to give to talk to her again, just for an hour. If she ever thought that she loved me more than I did her, she is revenged.
