Jep's soliloquy

Cribs 2014.01.20 14:11



"Finisce sempre così. Con la morte. Prima, però, c'è stata la vita, nascosta sotto il bla bla bla bla bla. È tutto sedimentato sotto il chiacchiericcio e il rumore. Il silenzio e il sentimento. L'emozione e la paura. Gli sparuti incostanti sprazzi di bellezza. E poi lo squallore disgraziato e l'uomo miserabile. Tutto sepolto dalla coperta dell'imbarazzo dello stare al mondo. Bla. Bla. Bla. Bla. Altrove, c'è l'altrove. Io non mi occupo dell'altrove. Dunque, che questo romanzo abbia inizio. In fondo, è solo un trucco. Sì, è solo un trucco."
- La grande bellezza

(This is how it always ends. With death. But first there was life. Hidden beneath the blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. It is all settled beneath the chatter and the noise. Silence and sentiment. Emotion and fear. The haggard, inconstant flashes of beauty. And then the wretched squalor and miserable humanity. All buried under the cover of the embarrassment of being in the world. Blah. Blah. Blah. Blah. Beyond there is what lies beyond. I don't deal with what lies beyond. Therefore, let this novel begin. After all, it's just a trick. Yes, it's just a trick.)

JESSE
You know how I think I've changed the most?

CELINE
How?

JESSE
When I was younger I just wanted time to speed up. You know?

CELINE
Why?

JESSE
Well. So I could be on my own. So I could be free from my parents and school and all that shit. You know? I just wanted to close my eyes and wake up and be an adult. And then I kind of feel like that all happened and I just want everything to slow down.

CELINE
Hm... it's strange - I've always had this feeling, no matter where I am in my life, that it's either a memory or a dream.

JESSE
I know, you've always thought that. And me too, it's like, is this really my life? Like, is it happening right now?

CELINE
It is.

JESSE
I know. Every year I just seem to get a little bit more humbled and more overwhelmed about all the things I'm never going to know or understand.

CELINE
That's what I keep telling you. You know nothing!

Resolutions for the New Year

Writings 2014.01.13 23:07

No more hiding from uncomfortable memories.
Write again. Blast that block and get to work.
Embrace optimism, befriend euphemism, and expel negativism.

Keywords: ① closure, ② synthesis, ③ magnanimity



Addendum: Last year's keywords.
