What can YOU say in six sentences?
I woke this morning with a purpose, something that has been on my mind, always on my mind, to find inspiration, to lose myself in a precious moment. The specifics are always different from one day to the next, maybe a strip of fabric, a walk through hovering trees, or a simple staring contest with the wall as my mind wanders through uncharted territory in my subconscious.
But a movie was chosen today, Beautiful Creatures, a story about witches, outcasts, and love, oh my, my heart is racing as I take my seat among five other observers at the 1030am showtime with their cheap chicken fingers and stale popcorn lining my burnt out nostrils. I disappear from Earth for 2 hours and 12 minutes taking in the dark atmosphere that is magic and allure, leaving not wanting to be human for the thousandth moment in my lifetime, wanting to embrace an alternative lifestyle that is impossible outside the realms of my mind.
The purpose was served today as I stare blankly at the cashier ringing me up in Giant but why do I feel so empty, so alive, and so dormant all in the same breath with a need to fulfill this hopeless dream of living. But then I remember who I am, a girl who lives vicariously through her books, and snaps back into reality.
