Quite a day, today was.
Screams of my mom and myself filled the air. The usual.
Emotions were thrown and hurled around.
Pains and misunderstandings were on the minds.
But as night dawned upon us, it faded away into nothingness.
Apologies and amends were made.
We returned back to the loving bunch we were.
Yet somewhere in our minds and hearts, the marks of it are always imprinted.
This day, I was made to feel different feelings and emotions from different sources. Every day, I do feel something or the other, but today was different, like some of those other days.
Reading and watching “Call Me By Your Name” overwhelmed me with emotions. It made me understand more about love and the pains of it. The ending of the movie, it’s raw magnetism, the character breaking the fourth wall with its heart-wrenching tears and realization.
A Netflix movie “Margarita with a straw” made me vulnerable and emotional. I learned about difficulties, challenges and changes.
Again, Netflix does its miracles by throwing me into the jaws of a documentary, “Dark Tourist” I learned quite a lot about the dark culture of different countries and also the dangers of some. A very intriguing and new concept and to watch the journey unfold was quite the enjoyable time. Taught me a lot.
David does justice to the show as well as to himself. I found him to be the type of person I see myself becoming very close friends with. I would say some of the interests are not up my alley, but I wouldn’t mind friends who do it, because I would like to get into the brain and know all their experiences through them.
I also find his accent very energizing, interesting, unique yet calming. Not afraid to speak out what he feels about the experiences and I love the way he is not afraid to push his limits into trying something new. His commentary, never unnecessary, everything just plays out right.
We get to experience a lot through people like them. These kind of people are one of the wonders and miracles in this world.
David phrases it quite well in fact. His words on Dark Tourism is “Escaping normality to stumble onto something beautiful and unexpected. ”
One of the philosophies I keenly and heavily follow. I escape reality and go into my mind because it’s a world created by me to do anything I wish and desire. A world to come into when I am upset, happy, excited and much more feelings.
Out of this, I feel a lot of things, but nothing ever sad.
I am the audience and the actor in this movie of mine.
Something just for myself. A place to unleash my unwanted and wanted thoughts and dreams.
It’s a world of mine where no one could ever tarnish or bring it to ruins with their words and self. A world just for me to devour.
How much ever I put it into words, it simply isn’t enough to describe how much it means to me and why. Maybe, sometimes no amount of words could equate to the feelings.
Everything in this world teaches us one thing or another. It’s always exciting to learn. A process I hope to never get tired of.
