The Mythology Of … (approbation drabble)

Posted on: April 28, 2008

I’m sure most of you will know who this is about. I can’t keep him out of my head forever. :-)

His world revolves around his son, his friends, his art. But it is through his words that he finds true expression.

He puts on another persona only after being invited in, accepting all its failings and strengths without judgment. He studies, questions, in the end bringing his words, verbal and non-verbal, to mix with the rest.

Receiving praise is secondary; his personal regard of the result more important than applause. Yet professional approbation, to one day stand in front of his peers and give thanks for their accolades, would be fulfilling, would be a lovely acknowledgement of the greater work.

Aaah … The Mythology of V! I was wondering how much time would pass before he found his way in! I love how you worked in today’s word. Nice.

I tried to keep the two separate, but he couldn’t help but seep in. :-)
