On being academically poetic

Bought the soundtrack to “La La Land” this morning.  CD and instant-ish MP3 download.  Really good.  Re-listening to now. 

Meanwhile, did some poetry, and decided I can still write about love even when I am incapable of finding it.  You can’t have everything, and tbh I prefer academia to an embrace which will one day always disappoint.  And in any case, never in my life have I ever experienced an unconditional embrace.  And that’s the truth.  That really is so.

And even if the choices didn’t have to be excluding, I have tried to achieve something in love all my life and failed abysmally; meanwhile, in less than six months in uni I already feel I am reborn.

No woman, ever, has done that for me, though I wished it had been so.  And at two times in my life, I think I even imagined it had happened.  But it was my imagination, not a reality the two women in question actually shared.

And I thought they did.

And I was wrong.  I was awfully wrong.

So here’s to uni and academia and the reading and the righting.

And, of course, to the writing too.

My last and final – now my only – love left.
