I am educating myself to become that rare character,
rarer, in truth, than any member of the Psychoanalytic Institute, a dream connoisseur.
Not a dream stopper, a dream explainer,
an exploiter of dreams for the crass practical ends of health and happiness,
but an unsordid collector of dreams for themselves alone.
A lover of dreams for Johnny Panic's sake, the maker of them all."
~ Sylvia Plath ~
I have only recently discovered the genius of Sylvia Plath.
A few months back, I opened The Bell Jar, was floored by the honesty of the novel, and have never been the same.
Since that journey, I've tried to find everything she has ever written.
I've devoured her short stories like I would chocolate;
Drank down her poetry like the finest vodka;
I've hung on every single word she has put to paper -
and I am still thirsty for more.
I'm sure all of her fans feel this way.
I'm just grateful I got to walk with her for a little while.
Thank you Ms. Sylvia.
Thank you for showing us how it's done.
(The above quote is taken from one of her finest pieces, Johnny Panic and the Bible of Dreams.)
A friend of mine was telling me about this film.
It wasn't until I saw the preview that I understood its premise and now a new slew of questions arise.
It looks crazy and interesting and I'm digging the twist.
If it's done well, this should be killer.
And does anyone know when this will be released?
