Recreating story Misery, written 10 years ago. Inspired with real events and people, still feels fresh and memories brought back to my mind again feel brighter then when it was really happening.
This quality of writing- possibility to keep hints and fragments of ourselves the way we were once is amazing. So your writing platform, your intellectual, sensual and spiritual self is capable to freeze deep your personal self,and you can come back to your memories and play with vex figure, who has your face as much as you need.
This quality of writing is why we need written testimonies - no meter are they fiction or some other kind of expression.
The writing is the only shelter to hide from very hurtful truth saying you can never go back home.
So now I speak with those ghosts of mine, remembering the archeology of building story but also re-living those emotions and encountering real people, obviously tattooed in my life deeply. How nice I can live and walk again through this little street of my life. Hear again those words and sounds, seeing all those faces in the same material and emotional position as they were arranged decade ago.
Better then the movie, better then life. This possibilty also neutralize so often used phrase how life doesn't have redo. Oh,it does!
Isn't it very strong part of writers playfulness and instinct/ to go back and sniff around footprints of distant memories.
Of, course it doesn't have to do with intimate memories but also writing can bring ball back to you/us , in case we are talking about recreating some big, historic, mutual experiences.
Seems I am now entering anthropology of writing, but it has to do with mystical part of my inner voice.
I see now how every blog post starts innocently and in the end not so naive and innocent.
