Oh, why not? There's nothing you could say that would embarrass ME, when it comes to fawning over a mere chit of a boy. In these he's old enough to have been married off to a royal heiress or to bed Juliet. That's old enough for a fantasy life. It's not as though he's "real", or that we are going to run into him at the store buying a new CD and drag him off to our respective lairs. Not that I wouldn't want to.

Film-Frodo, and his forerunners, seen in caps like these, and those from the last scenes in "Flipper," is so exquisitely, achingly beautiful to me, it makes me feel easy empathy with Thomas Mann's protagonist in Death in Venice. I wonder if he isn't my own "Tadzio," the golden youth whom the older, declining Aschenbach gazed upon on the beach and became obsessed with. Aschenbach's love for the young tourist turned from aesthetic appreciation to an erotic obsession love, although he never had any contact with the boy, but following him and his family around.

I hope, in my own aesthetic-cum-erotic older woman's love, I don't end up as darkly as did Eschenbach. I suppose the story of his fall should be a caution to me.

You know, I should write a post about this one day. :)
