Sometimes a certain smell will take me back to when I was young. Songs transport me to other times and places I have been. The unknown has been my backyard for the better part of my life. I don’t think I’ve actually ever planned anything, ever. I find it far more exciting to simply dive in and swim around in it. Control is something I’m porously out of. I’m time rich, far too intelligent to care about the outside world as it has zero effect on my life. Breathing, running, laughing and screaming at the top of my lungs when I’m scared which is often, this is where my heart lives.
I cant imagine how horrible a life it must be to wake up to Facebook and all the lies and hate only to be baraged by the media all day, it’s such a toxic life. I woke up early with a smile, pulled the body pillow I share my bed with in tightly, smiled and drifted off into my dream world. Eventually I did make it out of that wonderful cocoon, I cooked a cup of coffee, cranked my stereo and rocked out on my uke. There will be time for everything today, to take a few snap shots, read a bit of one of the two books im simultaneously reading, both written about the same boat by two different sailors.
It was being an actor the prepared me to be a writer, you have to be able to strip one hundred percent of your ego until there is nothing left, only then can you step into character; writing is the same way, I often refer to it as standing naked on a pedestal while thousands of people Judge you and that’s what good writing is. To truly open yourself to love you must do the same thing, strip every layer away until nothing is left but pieces of you. A puzzle that only one person who can make you whole can piece together with thier spare parts.
“-She said “Don’t get to close. It’s dark inside. It’s where my demons hide.”
-And I answered. Get too close, there is a hell inside of me, it’s where your demons can live.”
