Tough Times

It’s been a tough one. I want to get a cheap ticket with Ryanair, head straight to Norway and stay there.

When I feel like cutting communication with the rest of the world, I tend to look up quotes. Today they’re from Sylvia Plath.

 

“Perhaps when we find ourselves wanting everything, it is because we are dangerously close to wanting nothing.”

 

“Remember, remember, this is now, and now, and now. Live it, feel it, cling to it. I want to become acutely aware of all I’ve taken for granted.”

 

“I was supposed to be having the time of my life.”

 

“Let’s face it: I’m scared, scared and frozen. First, I guess I’m afraid for myself…the old primitive urge for survival. It’s getting so I live every moment with terrible intensity. It all flowed over me with a screaming ache of pain…remember, remember, this is now, and now, and now. Live it, feel it, cling to it. I want to become acutely aware of all I’ve taken for granted. When you feel that this may be good-bye, the last time, it hits you harder.”

 

“Ever since I was small I loved feeling somebody comb my hair. It made me go all sleepy & peaceful.”

 

“The thought that I might kill myself formed in my mind coolly as a tree or a flower.”

 

“All I want is blackness. Blackness and silence.”
