Carnival of Souls


I have not added anything to the web log for a few days. My life has been like this gem of a film from around 1962. There's a country & western song on the radio with the lyrics "If you're going through Hell, just keep on going..." I'm trying to figure out where the exit ramps are down here. Wayne

Exit ramps? I think that's the hell of it.

I first saw the phrase "Carnival of Souls" in Famous Monsters of Filmland when I was a tyke and still think it's one of the greatest sounding titles of all time. It's been used three or four times in Hollywood I think and none of the productions have ever quite lived up to the uber-coolness of that title.
The immediate cure for the Hell you find yourself in involves baby oil, independent wealth, and an attractive woman with naked breasts; alas, these are not readily available on most commuter train lines.
You may be suffering from the low grade fever caused by the "excessive consciousness" described by Dostoevsky as the dis-ease that makes some of us more aware than our co-workers, especially during staff meetings. I'm going to try reading Montaigne and I'll let you know how that works. I tried Marcus Aurelius a few years ago, but it didn't do a thing for me.
And remember that Mark Twain said that Heaven had the better climate, but Hell contained better company.
