TWO posts in a single night? I'm on a roll, yo! =D Okay I'm going to make this short and quick, lest my mother[who sleeps with one ear aimed at my door, just by the way] should hear the chuck-chucks emitting from my keyboard. So this lady whose blog I like to follow[you should check it out sometime, really] has started this exercise. Which I may not have the time to elaborate on at present, but which I assure you, is downright amazing. In a nutshell, I'll be using a picture she posted as a stimulus to write something. So here it is.
Do you remember the time when all you did in life was to sit and fill blank sheets of white paper with whatever came to your mind? The blurry dream you had the other night, your house, your favorite swing in the park, your mother when she was all dressed to go out, your father when he picked up his car keys and left the apartment in the morning, and every single event that garnished the short span of time that you'd been alive? All you needed was a box full of paints and blank sheets of paper that waited for you to accept them as your closest confidante. And at times, you'd make a swift movement, reaching out for your mother perhaps, and unintentionally toss the little glass bottle of paint onto the sheet, smudging your master piece, and at times ruining a brand new sparking piece of paper. You'd be upset for a while, cry over it a bit,then come to terms with reality and start afresh. I, I was never that kid. I was the kid who looked at the wreckage for a while, and eventually found a way to paint my masterpiece either on it, or around it. Where are those days? Oh what I won't give to be able to cover those poured paint like mishaps of my life with a fresh coat of bright color, to be able to bury them under my masterpiece. What won't I give to be able to conceal the scars under layers of sunshine yellow and sky blue, and pretend as if they never existed, while people stand appreciating the ingenuity off my strokes. If you don't mind, can I please rewind?
