47. Some sort of brute then,

LONG WEEKS passed. We put Ginny's affairs in order.

Her house went on the market and I moved in to mourn on my own. I was angry and bitter, full of sadness and pain. Or maybe none of those things. Maybe, a holed, flawed instrument, I felt nothing at all. I didn’t know. It was both, and it was neither. However a great rending had occurred. I knew that. Felt that.

The seams of The Contract had ripped, the groaning innards, and spilling through was not meaning, not promise, not hope, but insipidity. It coated my skin. A sickening stench.

Christmas came. I moved through it an amputee. But there was smiling and laughter, also, all slick and slippery on the surface. I smiled, laughed, I’m sure. Some sort of brute then, I was callous, cruel, and life laid flayed bare and meaningless, and I began to sift.

My last conversation with Ginny haunted. It was never far from my mind. Her unfinished design. The close of one chapter in her life, the beginning of the next. Both unwritten now. I thought about the passage of time and of loved things lost, and if, as Dylan Thomas once wrote, I would go gentle into that good night, or rage against the dying of the light.

I thought about not getting to say goodbye, of when I had been happiest, most passionate, of how I could live - truly live - before it was too late to do so. For mine was an epic saga, I’d known since I was young.

I thought of running away.

This might be my favourite passage for use of words, unexpected use, to convey grief, rage, guilt.  Rend, stench, flayed, sift.  Just awesome mate.

      Boutique Victorian festival earthcore has come under fire from a number of its headlining acts for allegedly failing to pay them for their appearance in the lead up to the event.
      Tel Aviv duo Coming Soon and trance act Phaxe were both due to appear at the festival’s flagship event in Elmore this November — and at earthcore’s additional events in Brisbane, Sydney, and Perth — but have now announced via Facebook that they will no longer be playing.
      “We want to let you know that we have cancelled earthcore Festival this year,” Coming Soon wrote. “The reason for the cancellation is because the owner of this festival didn’t pay us until now, and didn’t even book a flight…[This is] after many threats of cancelling us if we will not be patient.
      “We have to mention that [we’ve never been] treated like that ever in our 15 years in the industry and we will never work with this promoter ever again. We kindly ask all our fans who buy tickets to see us live on one of this festivals to request a full ticket refund…we refused other gigs in order to make earthcore, and we lost a lot of money from this issue. ”
      Read More Adelaide's Flux Festival, headlined by Deadmau5, has been cancelled   The duo also claimed that there are “more than 10 other artists” on the bill who are set to pull out of the festival, having faced similar issues with the promoter. They also alleged that the owner knows “he cannot pay all the artists” but is using “their names in order to gain more ticket sales.” They promised to publish their conversation with the promoter shortly.
      “We wish all the people that do go to one of this festival very much luck and hope they will enjoy this budgetless and multi-problems festival,” they signed off. “Dont expect it to be what you [think].”
      This directly contradicts an admin post on the earthcore QLD Facebook page, in which organisers claimed that Coming Soon and fellow act Bliss pulled out because they were “double booked”.
      Danish artist Phaxe also cited payment issues as the reason for his cancellation, writing on Facebook: “We are sorry to announce, that Phaxe…has to cancel the Australia tour for Earthcore, as the organizer did not fulfill the terms of our agreement.”
      Read the full posts from Coming Soon and Phaxe below, at the time of writing no other artists have officially announced their cancellation.
      Earthcore is due to take place between November 23 and 26 in Elmore; inthemix has contacted earthcore founder Spiro Boursine for comment.
