Upon coming back from a precipitated visit to my parents at the end of last week, I went to see Woody Allen's new film Midnight In Paris, which appealed to me in a way no movie had in a long time. I can see why some do not consider it to be one of his best, but so many parts of it resonate with my tastes and personality that seeing it made me excited again at working hard at doing what passionates me. My response to it is more emotional than rational, but I believe this is a good sign - does this happen to you as well?
I received beautiful, unexpected gifts. Amongst them, a portable record player, a record by Bridget St. John, whom I didn't know but cannot stop playing en boucle now, and Patti Smith's Just Kids which I have trouble putting down - I have been surprised by a sudden hunger, having lost notion of time, forcing me to finally put it down after I don't know how many hours of still reading. It's having a very similar, emotional effect on me as Midnight In Paris, and I am now looking forward to the months to come no matter where I end up working or what I end up doing with myself.
My 21st year is starting in a great manner, hopefully a sign it will be a great year.
