This is a tough one. Recently I read Shoeless Joe, 1Q84, Gone Girl, The Cuckoo’s Calling, ROOM, and Sweet Tooth.
The Cuckoo’s Calling reminded me a lot about the truth. The truth is simple. It’s lies that get complicated.
Sweet Tooth was a lot about gender and love and ambition. It reinforced a lot I’ve learned about being involved with older men. The difference between the way the world should be, and the way it is. I don’t think the main character was ever really in love, even when she thought she was. There was something so hollow about it. Like trying to describe something you’ve never really felt.
ROOM, a lot about perspective, obviously. Gone Girl was a lot of the same.
Shoeless Joe brought me back to love, destiny, and the romance and ethereal quality of baseball.
1Q84 was a giant bitch to read and I finished it mostly so I could stop carrying that beast around in my giant Celine bag to work every day. Although the story was frustrating there was a lot to take away. Reality, determination. How long can you love someone, and what does that really mean? What’s more real, the way you feel or the world you live in? Can you have both? How long can you be in love with a memory? The biggest takeaway from 1Q84, and most of the others, essentially, is that you can never go back. A lesson I’ve learned more than once.
“Even if we could turn back, we’d probably never end up where we started.”
― Haruki Murakami, 1Q84
After work hair game is Sea Witch today. Also, it’s Tuesday, I’ve been awake since 6:30 for conference calls with India, and I’ve been drinking. Ask me anything.
I have come much too far to backslide now. I am better than this.
