A few weeks back I came across this Blog, this absofuckinglutely amazing blog. /it blew my head off and shattered my mind. Some of the things the writer said were so true that it seemed impossible that someone around my age could get things so right. A friend’s friend, all I wanted tod o was ask him for her number and speak to her and tell her, I know how you feel and I get everything you are trying to say. I wanted to thank her, repeatedly for her words because she gave words to my thoughts and it made me so happy to think that there were others in the world like me. That I wasn’t the only one who felt such strange and awful and amazing things. Then I found out that the girl had passed away, and I couldn’t believe it. It scared me, shitless and broke my heart. Anyway here’s the link to the blog if any of you want to read it.
I didn’t know her. She was a friend’s friend and good lord she was brilliant. I have always felt that writers are forever, and though she was no Hemingway she was pretty damn brilliant. I just want to Thank you Aparajita Roy Paul. I don’t believe in afterlife and I don’t belive that she can read this but I feel the need to tell the world, or my imaginary audience how truly wonderful you are. ( and no, I won’t use ‘were’ because artists are forever) So thank you for everything.
