A.S. Byatt

I teeter between wanting to be as clever as A.S. Byatt, dreaming that I could one day (if I was very good) write a single sentence as good as one of hers and uneasily feeling like I am letting her down just by existing, let alone by reading one of her books.

And you see, I've let her down again because it's very hard to teeter between three different points, isn't it?

Not if they join downwards in a pyramid. Standing on the base of the upside down pyramid, you'd be teetering on the apex, wouldn't you?

So there you go, one good rationalisation a day is all that's necessary for happiness, I always feel.
