I Wish You Love

Current Mood: good enough
Currently Watching: Eye of the Beholder (1999)

Sometimes I take a break from some of my favorites, especially when feeling a little less than romantic or cheerful about life. However I think I'll always love this one. Watching "Eye of the Beholder" (1999) for what must be the thirtieth time. Not exactly the most traditional or happiest of love stories, but one that will always stick me right through the heart for my own reasons.

Sleeping less and creating more, so a good trade? It has been some time since I've found myself up until three and four in the morning regularly playing mad scientist with colors, words and codes. It's fun though and that is really the whole point of any of it, so I'll take it. Feeling sleepy and inspired. Someone must have raised that poor muse from the dead.

Tuned the violin the other day and promised myself that this time it would not be in vain. Learning to read music is almost the same as learning a new code. I should be good at this; I have no idea why it always feels a tad intimidating to even attempt. I pick up new skills quickly when I finally am able to set the mind to them. Monkey do, monkey learn, right? It always worked in the past.

There is more than enough to worry about or feel sad about, but every single day cannot be filled with somberness. Sometimes you have to take a break from it and make a little room for something better. I have quiet, isolation and all the time in the world. I can look at it like a cage or like an opportunity. Going to do my best to see it as the latter for a little while.
