This is a section of a book called ‘Still Life with Woodpecker’ that I am reading these days.
It isn’t often that I come across a gist of how I look at the world; how, even when things go wrong, my system takes me to an alternate path where ‘wrong’ doesn’t seem wrong, it just feels like an experience that my life can build or crumble on. The paragraphs above resonate the same disregard for right, wrong, good and bad of the law of the world. Whether it makes one an ‘outlaw’ is left to an individual’s idea of self-identification; and there, I would stay away from a stereotype any day. But for the sake of clarity of character, labels like these help me reconnect with myself time and again; and provide me some essential introspection.
I feel in love with myself today.
