I’ve been searching for the scripts I’ve been following, and there are many to dismantle. My quest continues; perhaps not so epic on a global scale but as epic a hero’s quest as one can imagine for myself.

Yes, his was a sad case. I remember when it happened. There’s an expression, “May your name not become a byword” – and Layne unfortunately became one, symbolic of a series of small wrong choices that repeated through time. He also has been symbolic for other things as well, but more importantly, he was a real person, yet held up as if a fictional figure.

Perhaps that is why I am also a fan of the White Collar Hero; the forgettable average guy, who gets up, goes to work, does what he needs to do, and managed to successfully navigate life’s travails, whatever it going on around him.

Yet perhaps the ultimate answer is neither to romanticize nor despise heroes and their ways but acknowledge the genre as enacted fiction. The trend of late, which I tend to like, is “You can write your own life story”. While it fits a person’s life in a limited context, it’s a least some kind of roadmap.
