the staving off of white.


maybe i have some gray hair. and maybe i've had it since the eighth grade. maybe i can't listen to nick drake without crying. and maybe there are moments that i think i'll never be pretty enough. never thin enough. maybe i'm selfish. and maybe i'm shy. maybe i'd sit on nothing but barstools for the rest of my life if given the chance. the kind with the red, plush, round top. the kind that spins. maybe the thing i'm most afraid of is not being able to write. the absence of words on a page. and maybe i'm trying. and maybe i'm failing. and maybe and maybe. and a maybe this life is nothing more than the chasing of light through the physical body.

Wow, I really like this! It is quite deep. You have a gift for words. :)

My goodness.
Nick Drake.
I stumbled upon one of his albums when I was 16.
Saw it while browsing in a Barnes & Noble.
Had never heard of him.
But felt immediately drawn to him.
So bought the cd.

To this day.
His voice wakes me up in the morning.
And lingers as hums throughout the afternoon.

Hey! I've been reading your blog for several months now, and this is my first comment. I just wanted to let you know that your blog has become a daily read and I can never get over your honesty. You truly open up to your readers and admit practically anything, and for that, I commend you!

Acting's great and everything, but why are you not pursuing a writing career? I'd be first in line to buy anything you wrote, I'll tell you that.

I feel the same way a lot of times.
