After discovering more videos I took of my dear friend, Virginia Hambley, I called her and said;
“I am so grateful I got to know you. There is no one like you. You are one of a kind. I just watched these videos of you, and I just had to call you and tell you I love you!”
Virginia is consistently the smartest person I ever met. Once in a great while she let’s me have the upper hand, but, she is just faking it. She looks down her aristocratic nose at me because that’s in her genetic make-up. Sometimes I wonder if her intelligence was increased due to her head injury.
It is difficult to know Virginia, again, and again, and again. Her mind is a Labyrinth that keeps blocking your way to the creamy nugget center, that I have only arrived at three of four time since 1997, when I first met my ex-fiance.
Her core being is locked away in a labyrinth, and is forever trying to get out. Virginia was destined to do highly clever things. She has a busy mind, and constantly regrets her disability did not allow her to own a career. She still wants to be a career woman.
At one time she wanted to be a Clown. So, I bought her a used clown costume. She never put it on, because, Virginia is a clown, a Court Jester. When I watch these videos, I am taken into a completely different world then the one that exists, the one that we un-injured folks agree to use in a sane compatible manner. We have rules and boundaries to maintain. Not, if you are Virginia. For one thing she has royal blood in her veins. The boundaries and limitations of the common folks, are not applicable in her DNA. There is no House of Bourbon in the Good Ol USA, no French Court. So, being with this beautiful soul, is to be taken down a rabbit hole, or, into the gnarly root of a giant tree.
I try to leave my guideline behind. But, I am Mr. Bumblepuss, all thumbs, who can not hang, can not go too deeply into The Abyss, because, there…. is only room for Virginia. I am a mere Witness. Her reaction to me saying “Shit!” is pure genius. Virginia is a bottomless pit of genius.
And now, Lady’s and Gentleman. Virginia’s Labyrinth
