1- A non-validation somehow turned into humility, a fear somehow turned into control, an indecisiveness turned into nihilism, a repressed desire turned into philosophy, some books learnt somehow turned into wisdom … your name is complicated. So your boss calls you Melissa. You probably drink a lot, but you answer emails quickly. What more to ask for ?
2- After a day answering YES to what you should dash with a NO, you get home. You gonna get that soup made from Monday’s leftovers, even though we are Thursday night. But you work so much that everyday is Monday anyway.
3- You are now watching TV, zapping endlessly ( look for ‘opportunity cost’, if you want to understand). There is that documentary about a tribe in Africa, ( cause of course ‘civilization’ seems to feel gravity only in some parts of the world, yeah ? )
4- Not only you don’t understand their language, but you think it is a primitive language cause its grammatical structure is not as complex as yours. But really, it is because you cannot recognize the peculiarities of sounds. ( Look for sound-blindness).
5- What seems banal is thought as worthless and that applies to everything. Most of us know at least two languages , that’s a big amount of words, and for you it is not so special. But try to spend a day without speaking a word.
6- Imagine no words to fill the atmosphere, to beautify , to express, to defend you, to protect you, to impose, to dominate …
7- This task was supposed to last one minute, yeah ? We were supposed to walk across the room and randomly stop by someone (I would be lying if I said that I didn’t choose my partner prior to that ) and then you have to look your partner in the eyes. Exchange no words, no gestures, just looks. And , so, you were supposed to guess, who they are , what is their life like , where do they come from …
8- And so I’m asking myself; what is his favorite song (Please listen to Love Is a B*tch by Two Feet )? Please tell me he hates pineapples on pizza ?! is his mom a gemini ? cause it really takes two to make this one.
9- But hey who cares about the stars when you are loved by the moon. A silence that breaks your world without breaking you.
