The cinematic experience

My mother used to say that writing comes easy if you start by getting down one true sentence. I can’t do that at the moment, so I’m calling it a day.

I didn’t know she couldn’t write, at the time I internalized that lesson. Or that writing has nothing to do with truth.

Did you know that the most worthwhile people on earth are those who do their best to dull the sheen of what makes them extraordinary?

Since I’m lying, I should tell you that the only thing that divides us from immortality is ego. You can live forever as an object. But as a subject - you’re already gone.

Either way, you should do what you want.
