Dinah used to say that therapists were not like washing machines. To try and express how her particular therapist was a person she was particularly attached to. How no other would do. How it wasn't just the role he played (therapist) in her life... There was something particular and special about their relationship.

And I had trouble with that (I remember) because I thought 'therapist' was a role...

And I'm still not entirely sure what I think about that. Though maybe I was in fact certain before that therapists were more like washing machines than Dinah wanted to admit / acknowledge...

But I'm 100 per cent certain that Floyd isn't, himself, a washing machine.

And suppose what he valued in life was, I don't know. Being a 'bum'. Even if so -- it's what he valued in life. I just mean to say that what is particular about him (I know not what) is now gone. And likely there were things that he had the potential for that were knocked out of him by the school of hard knocks from a very very very very very young age (whether in the name of realism for his own good or whatver it doesn't matter). His light...

Instead of shining his potential for the world.

THe world exterminated it.

And there we go.
