Sometimes it’s the revisiting of words you’ve glossed over that reveals nuggets you hadn’t previously divined. You spin the words through your brain, and one time across them is different than the others. What’s changed? Not the words. The words are the same. But something in you caused them to give up a greater meaning than the last time you passed them by.
Words said by Gatsby, that great idealistic lover, seem to ring home to me lately. I hear them, both his logic and his dreamers ideal, and they feel more true than they used to.
Not that it means too much in the grand scheme of things, but maybe just thinking on things allows you to make peace how very odd things can be. After all, The Great Gatsby himself was quite odd, driven in all he did by a love he was trying to renew, or perhaps to just see if it was still alive.
Was Gatsby wrong? Was Gatsby right? I guess it’s a mater of opinion. He ended up dead. That’s not a spoiler you cretin, read a book some time ok? But he ended up throwing himself 100% into the life he wanted. Or did he? Did he just throw himself into the life SHE wanted?
Which was it? And was it for nothing? Or was it worth it?
Only Gatsby can answer. And he’s not talking.
