WAI MV Annual Event
"For what do we live, but to make sport for our neighbours and laugh at them in our turn?" Oh Jane forgive me! I never wholly acknowledged the universality of that truth. Mine has been a life of shallow delight in the fragility of the human psyche manifest in family, friends and fellow man.The notion that I might, in my turn, unravel, had certainly occurred to me, but I believed that any such denouement of the soul would echo my finer characteristerics: endurance, fortitude, dignity and grace. I had pictured myself in the considerable bosom of my family perhaps sharing a meal, and the youngest child would whisper to his mother "Why is Daddy dribbling?". No scene. No drama. I would simply be brought to the garden shed and left there until whatever wave coursing through my neurons had crashed on the shore of my iron will. Oh that it might have been so! Instead, Nature exacted revenge for my smugness at a time and a place of her own choosing. Last night I was due to address a convention of the nation's leading mountain folk on the subject of Upland Cinematography. A heavy cold had resulted in the consumption of an array of "over the counter drugs", with some alcohol added to lubricate my burning throat. I grabbed the microphone like a man possessed and began a Quixotic rant against windmills and telecommunications towers, spoke of "solitary activity" on the hills, and "religious experiences". I had barely gotten going when the kindly man from WAI began to tinkle the "time up" bell, and walking sticks were extended onto the stage and I was gently but firmly pulled off. Had there been an orchestra present one might have heard a titantic rendition of "Nearer my God to Thee" as my ship sank. Instead, the lights dimmed and the mcrtchly Maamturks motion picture began to roll. A soothing balm for all.
