LOVE AND LUST AND AMELIA FOX: Not so epically egregious…..
I wish you well, Amelia Fox(1974- ), in the remaining two years of your young adulthood(1994-2014), your middle age(2014-2034) and late adulthood(2034-54)---as well as old-age(2054- ), if you last that long. There is, of course, no reason you should not last barring those slings and arrows which you must avoid if they fall into the category of severely outrageous fortune.
After a student-working life of half a century myself, 1949-1999, during which I had my share of the fantasy-erotic, you came into my life as your career unfolded in the final years of my own career(1996-2004) and the first years of my retirement: 2005 to 2012. I was able to continue that romantic fantasy with the erotic thanks to you and to many others who fill the electronic media these days. I'm sure you have served this role for millions of men. Good luck to you, Amelia, as you continue your own checkered romantic-erotic life.
I wrote the above after watching Amelia Fox: (i) in Consuming Passion, a 2008 British drama which celebrated the centenary of the publishing house Mills and Boon,1 and (ii) in many episodes of Silent Witness.-Ron Price with thanks to 1ABC2TV, 12:30-2:00 a.m., 27/3/’12.
Love and lust, fascination
with the erotic--hormones:
testosterone, & dopamine,
the basis of attachment with
oxitosin running meaning’s
show, one’s cosmology, partly,
along with a new world religion1
as was the case with me, while….
all-along the line I’ve had to deal
with my natural inclinations and an
immense industry of pornography,
to be free from enslavement, have
self-control & refinement as well as
handle what you might call: the trip--
the exquisitely idiosyncratic trip that is
my life, with no manual or cookbook to
deal with all the many problems, those
slings and arrows that come one’s way!
1 Even with the guidelines of this new religion, the Baha’i Faith, dealing with life’s treasures and exercising an appropriate self-control over my impulsiveness has not been easy. I learned over the decades that there is much more to religious life than piety, prayer and meetings. I’ve learned, too, that “one’s imperfections are not so epically egregious as to embarrass the seraphim ruefully yawning at their mention.”(Roger White, “Lines from a Battlefield,” Another Song Another Season, George Ronald, Oxford, 1979, p.111.
