first things first: team gloria list:
1. glorious people = m_P who came with me today to hospital
2. glorious places = central park where we walked afterwards
3. glorious things = country life magazine which i devoured over a nice long lunch post-hospital visit in the manner of Noel Coward who, when working Paris, during the war, would often taken himself out for an hour or more to digest the day’s sad news:
“Frequently when too oppressed by these echoes from dear green England, I was compelled to leave the office abruptly and have a very good lunch”
(p. 74: future indefinite, by noel coward)
am now living inside one of team gloria’s fav movies: how to get ahead in advertising. slightly dated but utterly compelling in the lessons learned through the growth of a “foreign body” aka tumor (although his was known as BOIL in the movie).
i am choosing to call mine: “tobias” the tumor. stately, yet still endearing, non?
