Guermantes and Meseglise ~ Monday, September 11, 2006
There may be only one journey, but there are many ways.
I was talking to my brother recently, and saying that though I still love walking, I'm a little tired of the two routes available to me out of our neighborhood: one to the left, the other to the right.
He pointed out that in Proust, there were also two ways--the Guermantes Way and the Meseglise Way. And so, of course, I knew that the leftways path for me was the Guermantes Way and the rightways path was the Meseglise Way, in the lexicon of my own particular geography.
And I have been out walking these last couple of days. Autumn is definitely here--I need a sweater or jacket when I go. But I do love it. I just hope there will still be lots of leaves left by the time Glenn and Mum arrive. ::Posted by Anduril Elessar @ 11:20 AM::::
