when it reaches your attention that you have become part of the storyline here. Having made the obligatory reference to Borges... I'll just remind you of the post some time back wherein I also referenced Barthes definition of "meta-fictional" as a
"novel that imitates a novel rather than the real world" ...
so as to set the stage for "a blog which imitates the really real in a novel form of adopting the reader into its milieu as witting or unwitting participant."
Duende being the pyrotechnic part of what this post referred to as a 'stick o TNT,' soon come... I can employ it no faster that the party providing the impetus to the plots' development - yourself in this case - gives up the details needed to 'fill in the blanks'... here being the reference to your better halfs' situation and most particularly.... my puzzling over what you said previous as to 'translating' something I wrote here for her... leaving me unsure if she be a recently arrived Easter Islander... or... ? Since I said I would be dedicating the "Deunde" part of what may indeed be turning into another "trilogy" when all is said and done... this is not prurient and idle curiosity, but rather a need for context. It is not my style to probe... so instead I simply wait for your next plot line development amigo!
I'm gonna posit that 'disappointment' may be tempered...
