Endgame

endgame MARIE CLAIRE ITALY Mathilde Frachon by David BelleméreLet’s read Endgame, what else have we got to do, come, come…

“Finished, it’s finished, nearly finished, it must be nearly finished.”

(Pause.)

“Grain upon grain, one by one, and one day, suddenly, there’s a heap, a little heap, the impossible heap.”

Endgame, Samuel Beckett.

  • Thanks for the reminder – made me think of the much loved quote from Alice in Wonderland, so I’ll let Alice reply on my behalf: “Alice laughed: “There’s no use trying,” she said; “one can’t believe impossible things.”
    “I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was younger, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”

    • Thank you for the comment Lisa. I love Alice’s words. This is the world of Madeliene Rose, a place where nothing is impossible. A place where you can have tea with the mad hatter, dine with Proust and spend NY’s eve with writers who created worlds that make life feel a lot less mundane!

  • Ha! Ha! Yes, and I am enjoying this world. Coincidentally, it’s my birthday soon and I am actually going to the Madhatters for tea! I hope something impossible happens. X
