Remember how I wrote that this is the part where the hero has to descend, has to lose, and has to return with renewed determination? That always happens - a hero is not interesting unless he is flawed in some way. We want to see him overcome those flaws.
I think Primo has had his revelation - his call to arms - his renewed determination.
We shall see.
He told me this morning that HE CAN NO LONGER STAY UP UNTIL 4:00 AM working! That he needs to start going to bed when I do and getting up when I leave for work. "I can't win this race if I'm exhausted," he said, "and I have to be on doors a lot earlier in the day. I have to focus."
Reader, it was music to my ears.
PS He also told me that he'd made an appointment to take the car in on Monday. Hallelujah.
