two for one (2)
1. in back of the furniture
Once you’re in the secret garden, you never leave: you only think you do. Acquisition and subsequent loss permanently modify the way you get knowledge about gardens. There’s no cure for your situation because there isn’t a garden to lose. The act of having a relationship with it, which includes its loss, is the secret garden.
The House on the Borderland is a disguised secret garden novel.
2. nothing nice
Fiction: nothing nice, funny or comforting to face the situations we are in. No, “The people deserve a wryly good time because things are nasty, we as a caring, empathetic industry owe them positive things.”
Because that attitude is not new & has always made its small but definite contribution to the disaster.
