Unpleasant Twisted Cynic's-ville


Been busy; think Kosinski

Pardon my absence lately; I’ve been caught up with a series of things in need of my extended immediate attention. I’ll be back on the blogging horse soon, but for now I leave you with an excerpt from, the master of form, Jerzy Kosinski’s “The Devil Tree”, my favorite and yours:

“… I can be described as neither a hostile nor a sympathetic person. My sense of myself is entirely relative. My hostility and sympathy vary, depending on whom I’m with: I compete or I pity. Either I’m not good enough for anyone or I’m too good for everyone. Being in the group has made me incredibly agitated. I want to give up contemplation and get out and move.”

As said to himself by main character Jonathan Whalen, in reference to not being able to continue attending his weekly group therapy meetings.
