Hiraeth (Welsh pronunciation: [hɪraɨ̯θ, hiːrai̯θ]) is a Welsh word for homesickness or nostalgia, an earnest longing or desire, a sense of regret, the feeling of longing for a home that never was. A deep and irrational bond felt with a time, era, place or person.
The Bold and the Beautiful® featured the harsh stand off between a wife and a wife’s friend who the husband temporarily prefers.
I cannot imagine a man with the forgiveness of Eric Forrester not talking Quinn back.
The song that came to mind was John Denver’s “Leaving’ On A Jet Plane,” as the first lines of the song, as Flo’s first lines to Eric were, “My bags are packed, I’m ready to go…the taxi’s waiting and he’s blowing his horn.”
“to measure up to all that is demanded of him, a man must overestimate his capabilities” – GOETHE
The episode featured two men, Thomas Forrester and Charlie Webber. Both of these men, Thomas, in taking a chance by shipping a controversial package to himself is to us, the viewer, an example in the extreme of Thomas overestimating himself. By contrast, Charlie underestimates himself and does a beautiful thing.
Specifically, Charlie has no reason at all not to check the secret box of Thomas. The package was not sealed in such a way that Charlie could not have easily checked it. Upon checking it, he would have a complete hold on Thomas if he had wanted. Thomas would have offered him huge sums of money to not say a thing about it. But even though he could have been a intermeddling threat, Charlie was the good man.
