I FEEL SO ALIVE RIGHT NOW I JUST WANT TO HUG EVERYBODY AND TELL THEM THEY ARE NOT ALONE AND THAT I LOVE THEM
today i was driving home from work and i became aware of the sound that was around me, the bus screeching to a stop, the airplane whooshing by, the train slowly making its way across. and i was looking around, looking at all the people driving home, the people walking their dogs, and the college students biking. and i became suddenly aware of how many different ways we wander about and it astounded me. we are always traveling. we are always on the move. we are always trying to reach calamity. we are all trying to go home.
do you ever flip a page of a book and feel like you’re entering a whole new world, and there is a huge rush of emotion that comes with that realization? sometimes I turn the page and it automatically feels lighter, or darker, literally, and I don’t know why. this is why I love books, books of all shapes, books like memoirs, poetry books, novels, picture books, magazines, I love them all. they’re such big worlds that come in small packages. it amazes me every time how much impact art has on me.
