Broken for Change

by Annaleise Wesley

James discovers that the world molds who people become based off of friendship, drugs, racism, love, divorce, compassion, and fear. These key truths become evident to him not only from his wealthy intellectual parents, but also from the friendship he holds closest that the world views as wrong. Turning to rebellion as a form of relief from family James is still viewed as the steady safe haven to all the people in his life.

This Side of Paradise

by F. Scott Fitzgerald

Amory Blaine inherited from his mother every trait, except the stray inexpressible few, that made him worth while. His father, an ineffectual, inarticulate man with a taste for Byron and a habit of drowsing over the Encyclopedia Britannica, grew wealthy at thirty through the death of two elder brothers, successful Chicago brokers, and in the first flush of feeling that the world was his, went to Bar Harbor and met Beatrice O’Hara. In consequence, Stephen Blaine handed down to posterity his height of just under six feet and his tendency to waver at crucial moments, these two abstractions appearing in his son Amory. For many years he hovered in the background of his family’s life, an unassertive figure with a face half-obliterated by lifeless, silky hair, continually occupied in “taking care” of his wife, continually harassed by the idea that he didn’t and couldn’t understand her.
But Beatrice Blaine! There was a woman! Early pictures taken on her father’s estate at Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, or in Rome at the Sacred Heart Conventâ??an educational extravagance that in her youth was only for the daughters of the exceptionally wealthyâ??showed the exquisite delicacy of her features, the consummate art and simplicity of her clothes. A brilliant education she hadâ??her youth passed in renaissance glory, she was versed in the latest gossip of the Older Roman Families; known by name as a fabulously wealthy American girl to Cardinal Vitori and Queen Margherita and more subtle celebrities that one must have had some culture even to have heard of. She learned in England to prefer whiskey and soda to wine, and her small talk was broadened in two senses during a winter in Vienna. All in all Beatrice O’Hara absorbed the sort of education that will be quite impossible ever again; a tutelage measured by the number of things and people one could be contemptuous of and charming about; a culture rich in all arts and traditions, barren of all ideas, in the last of those days when the great gardener clipped the inferior roses to produce one perfect bud.
In her less important moments she returned to America, met Stephen Blaine and married himâ??this almost entirely because she was a little bit weary, a little bit sad. Her only child was carried through a tiresome season and brought into the world on a spring day in ninety-six…

Se puede contar un cuento, una pequeña historia partiendo de casi cualquier cosa. Si tiene sentido para tí y si lo tendría para alguien más, o si por el contrario, no tiene sentido pero te apetece crearlo y sentir lo que te produce.

Cómo acomodarlo a los gustos de alguien que te concede un minuto de su preciosa y única existencia. Vas en el metro y necesitas volar lejos del mundo que te rodea, de las personas, del hombre mirándote cerca de la puerta o de alguien que tose. Yo también. Escribo para tus ojos. Tenemos grandes cosas por conquistar pero demasiado poco tiempo en un mundo donde ya no hay verdades absolutas, no hay definiciones válidas, todo depende de los ojos que leen, de su experiencia vital, de lo que le ha acontecido hasta llegar a tus letras y de lo que le rodea.

Se puede ser difuso, violentamente abierto o astutamente libre con simplemente un suspiro. Estamos en tiempos de cautela, de astuta libertad comprimida en momentos. Leeme, comparte si algo te toca, dime porqué. Dejame conocerte, te doy las gracias por ello y por darme la oportunidad de llegarte en estas páginas.
