"Odette" contemplating a New Year's resolution
In the course of things, I don't generally do New Year's Resolutions. Stopped smoking years ago after several NYR's had failed me. I did lose 5 pounds last year and kept it off. And this year I want to finish Proust again. If I can just get by those damned dull parties. So onward.
I've been learning a new computer. Switched from PC to MAC and right now I'm picking up email three different places, and one place just refuses to "Keep as New." After a day it's gone. So I've lost a couple of good Proust messages from Google that didn't hang around very long. Two are linked to this site.
But today I found a true gem. Now let's not laugh too hard. We were all young once, and some of us still are, but not your saintly Odette. Of a certain age, don't ya know?
So here in the link below, a young lady has resolved to read Proust, the great existentialist!
Now the question is: when will she realize that Proust and Sarte don't have a lot in common. Or do they? Doctoral thesis anyone?
