man this has been said before by cleverer folks than me, but sometimes you have to sit down and let the sheer size and age of the storytelling tradition just completely overwhelm you, ja feel?

like— think for a second about how mind-bogglingly incredible it is that we know who osiris is? that somebody just made him up one day, and told stories about him to their kids, and literally thousands and thousands of years later we are still able to go “there was a god whose brother cut him into pieces”, it’s so arbitrary, it’s so incredible

that in talking about scheherazade and her husband, you are doing something that someone in every single generation has done since it was written— you are telling stories that have lasted an impossible amount of time 

can you conceive of telling a story, and then traveling into the future and hearing that same story told— with alterations, and through media that you could not possibly conceive of, but your story— in the year 3214?

the fact that we! as a species! have been telling the same damn stories for so long— the fact that we’ve seen homer’s troy and chaucer’s troy and shakespeare’s troy and troy with fucking brad pitt because we never fucking stop telling stories! never ever ever!

we never stop caring about stories, or returning to the same stories, or putting our own spins on stories. we never stop talking about the characters as if they were real, or asking what happened next, or asking to hear it again.

generation after generation, they never ever ever stop mattering to us.

The President went to great lengths to conceal the full nature of his disease from the American people and from foreign leaders.  He asked the press to never photograph him in his wheel chair.   When in public, he walked with the aid of a cane and by holding tightly to his son James’s arm.  Well he didn’t really “walk”,  he couldn’t.   With great effort, he had to grip his son’s right arm, and with his upper body strength, rotate and thrust forward his left leg. Then with his right hand and cane, propel his right leg forward.  Over and over.   Grip… thrust… cane…thrust… grip, thrust, cane, thrust.  Observers have said that it was done so meticulously, it simulated the act of walking.

Now imagine the President – standing at the entrance to the House Chamber in the capitol, looking before him at the long walk down that aisle to the side of the speaker’s rostrum, where he needed to reach the top and the podium we see on TV. Grip, thrust, cane, thrust.   After the famous speech when asked what his dad was thinking and talking about as he entered the House chamber on that auspicious December 8th, James said “ only one thing … that he mustn’t fall.”
