For some reason, I started to sink immediately. Instinct made me push the bar out to lift the nose and gain altitude.
Instead, I stalled. The kite twisted on its center and did a wing over. I plummeted toward the hill face. The keel, the point, of the hang glider hit hard rock.
The kite crumpled. My harness yanked at my chest.
My helmet hit something and bounced off. Then, silence. Dead silence. Not even the sound of a breeze in the grass, and at that moment I understood what I had done wrong. The weather was a little different. I expected the updraft. No breeze. No updraft. When I started to sink, I pushed for altitude that my mind and body told me should be there.
Physics is a bitch. Gravity always wins. My instructor clambered down the slope to me at great personal risk. I climbed out of the wreckage. Are you all right? I had just destroyed his training rig and split his helmet almost in two. Remember the helmet bounce? Completely destroyed the helmet. His concern was for my well being. I did not have to pay a dime for his equipment. Good man. I had a powerful, good experience.
The emotional impact was huge. The joy was very high. I wanted that experience again. I wanted it a lot.
My mind and body remembered every detail of that experience and did everything right to have that experience again. However, conditions had changed. Failure was inevitable. The cyclic deteriorating fallacy of personal experience works like this.
We seek a result. Three more sell. The rest garner rejections. We would probably look at the other two as well. Suppose we discover that each story had an unrequited love element, a female protagonist with red hair, and a mountain resort. Well, that one should have the best details for allowing us to sell more since we already did the love, femred, and mountain bit. Take your Byron, who commemorates the defeats of man; give me Bradshaw, who commemorates his victories.
Give me Bradshaw, I say! You say contemptuously that when one has left Sloane Square one must come to Victoria. I say that one might do a thousand things instead, and that whenever I really come there I have the sense of hairbreadth escape. It is to me the cry of a herald announcing conquest. We know that the New Jerusalem will only be like Victoria. Yes, the poet will be discontented even in the streets of heaven. The poet is always in revolt. You might as well say that it is poetical to be sea-sick.
Being sick is a revolt. Revolt in the abstract is—revolting. Yes, the most poetical thing, more poetical than the flowers, more poetical than the stars—the most poetical thing in the world is not being sick. With surprise, but with a curious pleasure, he found Rosamond Gregory still in his company. Do you mean what you say now? Now, sometimes a man like your brother really finds a thing he does mean.
It may be only a half-truth, quarter-truth, tenth-truth; but then he says more than he means—from sheer force of meaning it.
Syme strolled with her to a seat in the corner of the garden, and continued to pour out his opinions. For he was a sincere man, and in spite of his superficial airs and graces, at root a humble one. And it is always the humble man who talks too much; the proud man watches himself too closely. He defended respectability with violence and exaggeration.
He grew passionate in his praise of tidiness and propriety. All the time there was a smell of lilac all round him. Once he heard very faintly in some distant street a barrel-organ begin to play, and it seemed to him that his heroic words were moving to a tiny tune from under or beyond the world. To his astonishment, he discovered the whole garden empty.
Everyone had gone long ago, and he went himself with a rather hurried apology. He left with a sense of champagne in his head, which he could not afterwards explain.
In the wild events which were to follow this girl had no part at all; he never saw her again until all his tale was over. And yet, in some indescribable way, she kept recurring like a motive in music through all his mad adventures afterwards, and the glory of her strange hair ran like a red thread through those dark and ill-drawn tapestries of the night. For what followed was so improbable, that it might well have been a dream. When Syme went out into the starlit street, he found it for the moment empty.
Then he realised in some odd way that the silence was rather a living silence than a dead one. Directly outside the door stood a street lamp, whose gleam gilded the leaves of the tree that bent out over the fence behind him. About a foot from the lamp-post stood a figure almost as rigid and motionless as the lamp-post itself. The tall hat and long frock coat were black; the face, in an abrupt shadow, was almost as dark. Only a fringe of fiery hair against the light, and also something aggressive in the attitude, proclaimed that it was the poet Gregory.
He had something of the look of a masked bravo waiting sword in hand for his foe. He made a sort of doubtful salute, which Syme somewhat more formally returned.
About what? Gregory struck out with his stick at the lamp-post, and then at the tree. There is your precious order, that lean, iron lamp, ugly and barren; and there is anarchy, rich, living, reproducing itself—there is anarchy, splendid in green and gold. I wonder when you would ever see the lamp by the light of the tree.
Gregory began in a smooth voice and with a rather bewildering smile. You did something to me that no man born of woman has ever succeeded in doing before. The captain of a penny steamer if I remember correctly at Southend.
You have irritated me. If I struck you dead I could not wipe it out. There is only one way by which that insult can be erased, and that way I choose.
I am going, at the possible sacrifice of my life and honour, to prove to you that you were wrong in what you said. You do not think that in a deeper, a more deadly sense, I am serious. Ines Marcella replied to Ananya.
