Still very early days yet with the "past life senario" with me. But Don's sure as hell desperately running away from something
! I'll be surprised if he's simply escaping from past associations with extreme poverty, or just upholding & protecting his current position in life. I'll be quite disappointed if he turns out to be quite that
shallow. There has
to be much more going on in that very busy, intense brain of his! I wonder what he actually did
in his past life?
I was really interested in the "published author" thing. It is as though success in advertising, as profitable as it obviously was, was seen as not nearly as desirable as success in the world of literature ... which paid peanuts. It's as if all those ad-men were frustrated Norman Mailer wanna bes, or something! Working away on their secret novels, dreaming of recognition in the higher
world of literature & the arts. Rather quaint, I thought.
