"The question of accumulation," Adrian had written. You put money on a horse,it wins, and your winnings go on to the next horse in the next race, and so on. Your winnings accumulate. But do your losses? Not at the racetrack -- there, you just lose your original stake. But in life? Perhaps here different rules apply. You bet on a relationship, it fails; you go no to the next relationship, it fails too: and maybe what you lose is not two simple minus sums but the multiple of what you staked. That's what it feels like, anyway. Life isn't just addition and subtraction. There's also the accumulation, the multiplication, of loss, of failure.
