shadows of history
We take for granted so much in life,don't we? So much happens in corners of lives that have a profound effect on the lives of many of us.The dedication to a profession that drives so many to excellence and ripples in society for decades. Be it the actual writers of laws, the actual surgeons who operate, the actual....hmmm webmasters that organise websites...or those who use the pen as a sword with which to fight lies and deceptions. What I got from this fascinating and endearing glimpse into the life and times of this man, was simply that....his dedication to his profession. A dedication that was tempered and forged by levels of integrity that seem to be so grieviously infected by ratings viruses nowadays. I am also struck by a paradox I see here: it could be expected that someone from a privileged background would continue to 'play the game'.It's almost to me as though he rose above the game and was not restricted by the so called 'privileged background' in much the same way that someone from a 'poor background' rises beyond that. An excellent biography,spots and all,that is in itself a historical archive. This was a good experience waching this.
