I still do remember the first time our souls touched. It was at school and we both had planned to spend a free period to read and write, but as we saw each other, somehow it felt as though we had to talk. I had known you before and so did you know me, in some sort, still this beginning felt like an explosion. I remember how your words would leave me breathless because they'd remind me of myself so much - how someone could use their mind the same way, live the same dreams, share the same sorrows. That day after we departed, I felt inspired. I felt alive, vivid, you had given me the power to create something, to achieve. And after a while, we discovered the word "radiant", and we put our own special meaning to it. We escaped to the world of dreams together, we cried and we laughed, and in our hearts there was always this wish to be more than there is. To look farther than the surfaces. To dive into our minds and explore every little detail. And we did. We still do. We still wander around the world, absorbing everything like a sponge, just to eventually leave it out again, having changed it in our own pretty ways. And we understand because it's just you and me and we always had a thing for illusions. You are radiant.
I have felt this...a few times,but it was only me,as it turned out.I guess I just want to find someone I'm meant to spend time with(whether it's love in terms of friendship or something more).Maybe it's just me. I can see that after you read the Alchemist,your view on things seems to have become more...insightfull.You understand things in a different than the usual way,you get more into them.I guess I need to re-read that Life Manual once again. Your pictures have only a few things and a model usually,and yet they capture so many things.I will never get how you are being able to convert everyday things into something-that's-so-awesome-I-must-have-it,and everyday faces to models coming out of fairytales. Also,on a side note,I'm glad to see you're feeling better,through your comments and your art.It's more "fairytale-ish" and happy once again
