Pre-ponderance of the Banal

~ Dateline: Corfu, 0600hrs ~

At the prodding of an editor, I unwisely sent her samples of the 'real' local feedback that's bombarded our credentials-krazee Corfu Grapevine over the ITV documentary 'Chasing Tall Tales Round Two Islands'.

Her response is still pushy but with a glimmer of sympathy:

"There is nothing quite like a Comments page for appreciating the pre-ponderance of the banal in human thought and existence."

The hum drum. The quotidian. But ordinariness (as you write it and I strive to - but am always getting 'Carried' (ha ha!) away)) can be made fascinating, entrancing Daemonic too. Η κοινοτοπία του καλόυ. The banality of good; the banality of evil. I wonder how Pooter and Carrie would have comported themselves if Charles were a German Jew in the 1930s. After seeing Roberto Benigni's film 'Life is Beautiful' (on the train the other day) in which the nobodies are Guido, Dora and their boy Giosuè, I imagine they might have done jolly well.

I'm really impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Anyway keep up the excellent quality writing, it's rare to see a nice
blog like this one these days.
