My Inspiration for May 2022

31 May

This May I read D.H.Lawrence’s “Lady Chatterley’s Lover” and although the book is known for its erotic theme, what struck me the most was the motif of aloneness, the distance and separation between lovers, and the process of overcoming that distance and overcoming the shame and inhibitions which result from the culture, and this made me read Erich Fromm’s “The Art of Loving” again… I’ve enjoyed rediscovering and discovering George Harrison’s music and overall I have been in a major hippie mood. Sadness and glamour, as Richey from the Manic Street Preachers said one time. Lots of thought-pondering whilst sitting by the river, feeling calm from gazing at the river surface and being blinded by golden sunsets… a bit of sadness and some disillusionment mixed with excitement and groovy tunes and pretty clothes.

Believe me there is no such thing as great suffering, great regret, great memory… everything is forgotten, even a great love. That’s what’s sad about life, and also what’s wonderful about it. There is only a way of looking at things, a way that comes to you every once in a while. That’s why it’s good to have had love in your life after all, to have had an unhappy passion- it gives you an alibi for the vague despairs we all suffer from.”
(Albert Camus, A Happy Death)

It’s no good trying to get rid of your own aloneness. You’ve got to stick to it all your life. Only at times, at times, the gap will be filled in. At times! But you have to wait for the times. Accept your own aloneness and stick to it, all your life. And then accept the times when the gap is filled in, when they come. But they’ve got to come. You can’t force them.”
(D.H.Lawrence, Lady Chatterlay’s Love)
