However, despite it all, I have returned to the
Rabbit of Usk, and the edge that ends in meaninglessness should be
rounded with sandpaper, rather than left to the conclusion,
"that's what I meant." The other solution is to paint the edge
bright red, give it a "Look at me" flashing light and try to think of it
as a hinge.
It's the valley of structure, I
know, and as has been pointed out, structure more often defines meaning.
Which in the matter of The Rabbit of Usk and Walking Stewart is a good
enough reason to quote Dylan Thomas: "Dig no more for the chains of his
grey-haired heart." But I miss Walking Stewart, and could so easily
return him to his seat at my table. Give him the quality of a hinge,
so that doors might open.
