J and Mr Rawlinson

"Let me probe my soul to the quick. What am I and what am I likely to become?
In character, unsteady, indolent but ambitious.
In faith - a direct infidel
In feelings callous as a stone
In principle, like my neighbours, neither too good nor too bad
With some talent and more reputation for it
Culpably wasteful and extravagant and incapable of forming and adhering to any fixed purpose on a single subject"
Henry Rawlinson 1837
MY NEW HERO (he was a classicist (yay!) who translated ancient persian languages despite being, as I am, unsteady but ambitious! Man , is he speaking my language!)
The everlastingly and extravagantly indolent J xoxo
