While I currently have a safe place to sit and do an update I’ll try and fill you guys in on what’s going on.
Currently I’m homeless. How did I get to be homeless? Well the reason I got when I was being kicked out was “I want to pursue my ex girlfriend and I can do that with you here.” I got 4 days to find a place to stay.
What about family you ask? They disowned me almost 3 years ago when I put my son up for adoption because I couldn’t give him the life he deserved.
So now I’m sleeping in people’s cars, or on couches, and tonight in the cemetery. I’m not in a big city. I’m most definitely out of place as a homeless green haired chick that looks like she’s barely 16 where I am.
But Greenville isn’t safe for the homeless anymore. They changed the park hours and have been increasing arrests. I can’t afford to have a record so I left the city.
Thankfully I have enough money to feed myself for a bit. So that’s the highlight of my day. That today I’ll be able to eat.
Made it to simpsonville but I don’t have a place to sleep tonight so I might be sleeping in the cemetery. M
I’m not dead. Just kinda blurry and in a library bathroom.
In fairy tales, monsters exist to be a manifestation of something that we need to understand, not only a problem we need to overcome, but also they need to represent, much like angels represent the beautiful, pure, eternal side of the human spirit, monsters need to represent a more tangible, more mortal side of being human: aging, decay, darkness and so forth. And I believe that monsters originally, when we were cavemen and you know, sitting around a fire, we needed to explain the birth of the sun and the death of the moon and the phases of the moon and rain and thunder. And we invented creatures that made sense of the world: a serpent that ate the sun, a creature that ate the moon, a man in the moon living there, things like that. And as we became more and more sophisticated and created sort of a social structure, the real enigmas started not to be outside. The rain and the thunder were logical now. But the real enigmas became social. All those impulses that we were repressing: cannibalism, murder, these things needed an explanation. The sex drive, the need to hunt, the need to kill, these things then became personified in monsters. Werewolves, vampires, ogres, this and that. I feel that monsters are here in our world to help us understand it. They are an essential part of a fable.
So much for the 30th…
