The way you respond to my questions, and statements. The way you respond to your surroundings. Your way with words is captivating. What is your secret to writing the way you do? And also, what books do you recommend? (:
Those questions don’t have answers. I don’t think anything has an answer come to think of it. There are motions, moments, and make believe that just are. Then they aren’t.
I’m currently cycling around The Glass Bead Game by Hesse, Finishing the Crown of Stars Novels by Kate Elliott, Periodic Tales By Hugh Aldersey and revisiting the Elric Saga. Also rereading Alchemist for this sunday’s book club.
If you are interested in a higher literature standard/where you will learn conventionally as well as spiritually(personally) and along ironic theological themes hit up Hesse. You can’t walk away from one of his books unscathed. Negatively as well as positively, if you take him down the right track he will drag you low just so you can find your own way back up, or the other way around. up and down are hard for me . I recommend Narcissus and Goldmund to get your feet wet, and then anything else if you like him.
The Alchemist/ anything by Paulo Coelho. Simply put, if you have not read it. read it. From our brief (but lovely conversations) i gather this book will get under your skin. It’s a quick read but changed my life. My first real book that i came out of glowing.
The rest on my list are nitch books. if you like medieval fantasy (no Tolken, female author and very, very different “adventure”) and or astronomy/ fate topics in fiction then check Kate Elliot out. I’ve been reading her for a long time.
I love your way with words, I started following you after coming across one of your "wash out" images and I just had to stop by and tell you what a beautiful soul you are. That photo really struck a chord with me. Hope your day is going wonderfully :)
The concept means a lot to me as well. a story, a rendering of desire and fear. What i am, want to become, under what i am seen to be.
I feel as if I hated the whole human race. I was done with 'society', as cliche as that sounds. But why hate something that used to be so beautiful? Even if the human race has changed, not everyone in it has changed. Like, when you fall in love with someone. Even if you fade away for whatever reason, your feelings for them change, and after the numbness fades, you can't hate them completely, because of the feelings you had for them. Again with the part 2 :p
We fall into circles, habits and horse blinders. Love and Hate are mirrors, thrown on stilts with all of our philosophical rambles and shadows. They are a part of the transitory matter and consequence, but they are also everything we will ever possess. What is joy without pain to define it? what is love without worry and fear? what is hate without passion and conviction? We try to walk a straight line in an upside down world.
have you ever been thru a break up that felt like you wouldnt be able to feel again??
There is a stage of regrowth. it’s never the same, never even similar to the piece that has been buried but you find a new way to see, breath, feel.
Foreign is the the step before home and you can only know numbness by the absence of having felt. I say this not as a master of emotions or any of the sort but as a journeyman, comrade and fellow human trying to understand life thus far.
