On expenditure and his piece of an Accursed Share at Never Neutral.

"The sign of my times: exhaustion. Suddenly I feel trapped within Georges Bataille's The Accursed Share: lately, the motif has been expenditure. I almost feel out of my own body. Or I wish I could be out of it. Contradiction as both a symptom and a consequence of exhaustion."

N, is that the theme from Love Story ? Whatever it's from, it works for the mood. Your post has me thinking about Bataille's Blue of Noon ...and late last night, after a day of revising and writing, not being able to see my own place as something mine own.
