Is it weird that I swear my introduction to Tolkien was probably a 2003 platformer holding the name the Hobbit. It’s fitting in a way as gaming has always been a big part of my life. So why not have one of the best literary works be introduced to me this way as a game. I couldn’t beat it for the longest time, frankly the Flies and Spiders level was completely terifyihg. Not exactly the flies or spiders but the corpses! Yes little known to my 6 year old self but the Hobbit housed a spooky level. So being the brave boy I was… I watched my mom beat the level. That was that. I came back a few years later, my imagination had died down a bit and I was able to beat the fear and complete the game baring a few more mistakes.
I’m reading the Witcher, written by Andrzej Sapkowski. It’s good, the one thing that bugs me is, is am I actually reading the words of the author, or that of the translator’s Danusia Stok, after a curiosity forming, of wether or not she was polish born, I found myself on a page that says she was born and raised in England.
Are there words in Poland that don’t exist in the English lexicon, (short answer is yes there are phrases that lack sense to the American). And with that is this the same story that was written. My best guess would be a yes, stories were transferred through history verbally with minor tweaks to the understanding so this is probably no different, my only hope is that authorial Intent is still soundly intact.
The quiet needs to be silenced, drowned with the noise. That’s it go with the flow let the noise wash over. Time goes slower and we breath the ecstatic air.
It was something so short lasted. The word count that I had worked meticulously to accumulate, gone and halved. The evidence of the disappearance very minimal, this is it, time for the factory reset, a purge to get fresh. But in reality everything is fine.
I understand that, the salt on the glass the sweet concoction mixed on the inside. Hearing the waves crash and staring at the sunset… a perfect goal in mind for the future. Sooner rather than later.
In a sense we are made by memories and we make them. We think back to recreate the good, 21 years into life and there is still much to create and recreate.
Oh boy! You’ve finally hit it big, you’re doing what you love and making money at it. Life couldn’t be better, it took you a few years but when Hollywood gets ahold that long time to make they happen will be set and passed in a minute of screen time so all we must do is do our thing. Create what we must to get to our happiness and watch all the years later when that work is glossed over in a minute.
You’ve probably had those things that you watch or play and they are so profoundly deep that you think and you think on it. It goes deep. There are so many different to interpret it you could probably take a course on it and still have more to learn afterwards. So what do you do in those situations? Well for starters I think it’s great to watch films that make you think or see part but I also think it is great to watch lighter things to give your mind a break. But when you do think about it I do think it would be best to think about it for a few days and then move on to the next things.\
So not in moderation.
It could almost be endless as the more you think about the art the more you think about it effectively making the content you can see endless , what’s a film where you hav experienced this? Let me know!
Where have I been?? So basically I can’t type fast, so I sat in my room and thought hey gotta start somewhere. Obviously or not so, I thought to myself hey gotta start with the something, so in a moment I decided that I would improve my skills on typing. That is what has been done for many of the past few days. Just keeping things going. I have audio books going so I have this constant stream of new information going. Different ways to read and write coming in, inspiring me among other things. It is weird I do feel like I am getting smarter as I practice daily and listen more though I do have to remember things are just getting started so here I sit, my speed getting faster.
