If you had to write the story of your life in a mere 250 words, how would it read? Would it be a mystery, drama, romance, adventure? What would be the overarching theme? Who would be the supporting characters? From whose point of view would you write?
I wonder how clearly we see the story of our lives. Taking the time to think about it could make the difference in finding our “Happily ever after”.
The Silent Days
Film shot in black and white. Silent. Women in overaccentuated eyeliner. Men in regal top hats. Flowing sequins gowns. Faces veiled in mystery. The world of elegance and simplicity, graced by curtsies and “how do you dos”.
I peek from behind the thick velvet curtain, waiting for the director to command “Action!”.
The stars mill about, maintaining their poise. They don’t know I’m here, trespassing their era, sneaking a sip from the fountain of yesteryear. It is better for me to be here with them, than for them to be in my day. There they have all been filed into back rooms of libraries and archived into film study collections, replaced by pyrotechnics and botox.
