"Jeg har forsøgt at fortælle om en verden, der ikke findes for at den skulle findes" - Inger Christensen

    Jeg aner ikke hvorfor, men din profiltekst med citatet af Inger Christensen ramte mig på et virkelig ømt punkt. Damn, det er altså en flot sætning! Men du har jo også smag for den slags ;) xx

    Årh, jeg har glemt at svare ... Typisk. Men jeg er også helt vildt glad for det citat. Der er et eller andet virkelig smukt over det. <3

    Jeg føler at det er evigheder siden, at jeg har været aktiv og virket levende herinde, så jeg ville bare lige lave en hurtig opdatering om hvad jeg laver og så vil jeg rigtig gerne høre hvad I laver.
    Lige for tiden er jeg i gang med to ting.
    Le digt: Jeg begyndte for lige knap en uge siden at skrive et digt, der hedder: "Herfra hvor vi står" (hvilket er en sætning der er lånt fra Skousen & Ingemanns sang "Herfra hvor vi står" som er helt utrolig smuk) - jeg regner med at det skal deltage i sukker-konkurrencen, når jeg engang bliver færdig, hvilket forhåbentlig er inden jeg drager mod Brønderslev på lørdag.
    Le længere historie: Jeg er begyndt på en længere historie, som jeg lige knap har to kapitler klar til. Jeg ved ikke hvornår den kommer ud og hvis jeg gider et bud kommer jeg nok ikke til at holde det, så jeg lader bare være. ;)

    Men det var mig. Hvad med jer? Har I fået tid til at skrive i ferien? ♥

    Heldige dig Deus, det skulle jeg have ledt efter i stedet for en efterskole med heste. Have fun! :)

    Holder sådan af "Herfra hvor vi står", det er sådan en fin sang.
    Jeg forsøger blot at fastholde min koncentration... jeg har meget svært ved at få skrevet noget i øjeblikket :(

    "Recently I ran into someone I hadn’t seen since high school. Back then, I admired Bonnie—she seemed to know how to dress for and handle every situation. There was a group of guys we both hung out with, and she also seemed to know better than I how to handle them. But we weren’t really friends.

    Suddenly we bump into each other, out of nowhere, at a concert, lo these many decades later, and I’m thrilled—it’s like spotting a celebrity! And it gets fascinating right away. We’re explaining to a third person how we knew a lot of the same people, but hadn’t been actual friends, when Bonnie says, “Oh, I could never talk to Winnie; she was way too cool for me.”

    Stunned, I splutter, “WHAT?! What are you TALKING about?! I was NEVER cool. YOU were the cool one. I would have given ANYTHING to have been as cool as you!”

    She looks at me like I’m out of my mind. Facts that we’ve both taken for granted for over 30 years vaporize before our eyes. Bonnie mentions a guy we both knew: “He was so in love with you.”

    OK—whaaat?! Why is this quasi-stranger lying to me? My most fervent wish during those four terrifying years was that someone would somehow see past my uncoolness and fall in love with me. A huge part of my identity was (and still is) based on the firm belief that that never happened. In Bonnie’s parallel universe, however, it did. How can that be?

    In high school, we become pretty convinced that we know what reality is: We know who looks down on us, who is above us, exactly who our friends and our enemies are. We know what’s true, and what isn’t, and there’s no room for doubt. Sadly, this condition will likely continue throughout the rest of our lives, unless we actively work to combat it. Which I recommend you do.

    How do we combat it? By allowing ourselves to realize how very little we know about all the people we’re so certain about. And that what seems like unshakeable reality (he thinks I’m a fool, she hates me, they’re better than me, I’m better than them, I know what they’re thinking) is basically just a story we learned to tell ourselves. Until we know it by heart.

    A few years ago I heard a rabbi explain that there’s a specific Jewish prayer meant to be recited when you find yourself in a crowd. I never learned the exact wording of this prayer—but the idea is basically this: Remember, everyone bears a hidden pain. Everyone. It may not show; it may be something you’d never guess in a million years. But every person has a secret burden.

    When I remember the truth of that prayer, I feel less alone. When I write, the idea behind that prayer is my guiding principle. I want my characters to seem alive—so no matter what they appear to be, on the surface, when the audience first meets them, I know there’s got to be more to them. Something hidden—maybe even from themselves.

    I almost wish someone had talked to me about all this when I was in high school. But if they had, would I have believed them? I was so sure of everything I was so sure of.

    By the way, Bonnie and I are friends now. For real."
    - Winnie Holzman (... som står bag serien My-so-called life)

    Jeg tror jeg var nødt til at dele det her, fordi Winnie Holzman så perfekt og kort fik skrevet om noget, som jeg har reflekteret over et stykke tid, på en helt præcis og rammende måde. Lige nu sidder jeg i øvrigt i Nordjylland med cola i et vinglas og hår der dufter som svømmehal. Sommerferier er ret skønne. ♥
