If I’ve counted correctly, this is my 50th blog entry. Happy anniversary, Hulles. Thanks. Thanks also to the people who have encouraged me in my writing. You know who you are.
This will be a short one, but one that’s important to me, and one that I seem to be unable to stick anywhere else. It’s a quotation from the book Justine, by Lawrence Durrell, and is spoken by the title character:
“You have the soul of a clerk.”
There is no worse insult in my book. If you use it yourself (and I have), please use it with care. Ironically, for someone accurately described by the above sentence, it’s probably not horribly insulting at all.
