  • i don't know if everybody gets the same, but sometimes i feel like i live in a movie. i don't mean it in a superhero or dramedy way, but rather the way i see things are kinda cinematographic.
    ...a tram passes by and you can see a woman looking into your eye while you look in hers - just for a second in a slow motion, and then tram goes on...
    ...leaves moving to a rhythm and catching sunlight...
    ...dimly lit stuff that sits on your sink in the bathroom looking like a beginning of a toy story movie...
    ...or that feeling when you are for too long in the sun with your eyes closed - you open them and you see everything like in those happy hippy 'handmade' movies of the 80s - lots of reds, yellow, greens, and all slows down and fastens up randomly...
    .... a star above lighted up window that you can never picture with a camera, or at least definitely not with mine...
    a lot of these things are in slomo - life goes on really fast, then it pauses, you see something extremely beautiful and it throws you right back in - sink or swim...
