“feel paralyzed by both ‘feeling truly alone in the world’ and ‘being able to do anything because of being alone’…”selections from Jordan Castro’s Twitter by Megan Boyle (editor)
“Remember dates you’ve had. Take baths. Think of the empty space between atoms. Feel your pulse beat under your skin. It sounds like an ellipsis. Drive to see if “20 miles in one direction” is the same 20 miles back. On the radio, bursts of static interrupt traffic reports like sarcastic applause. Remember parties. Look at the phone as if it has a delicious meal it’s not sharing. Eat watermelon in your car. Stare at your fingers on the steering wheel. Wonder how you’re always driving towards the horizon without vanishing into it. Spend two hours in a craft store searching for something you keep forgetting. Examine a cardboard cylinder of pink bath salt. Imagine a team of three miners shaving minerals off giant pink stalagmites in a prehistoric cave, surrounded by air no one else has breathed.”Megan Boyle, “How To Be Alone” http://thoughtcatalog.com/2011/how-to-be-alone/ (via acidsadness)
