Dear Diary

January 15, 2014

All alone together.

Britney

I am alone, and it feels so right. The candle sitting across from me bleeds red wax, and I hold my hand over the high flame, letting the heat tickle the deep lines running across my palm. I am the opposite of the numb girl that I used to be; it is as if all I can do is feel. I feel like I’m truly alive in two worlds: this one and the one I have made for myself. This year is so good that I can barely scrape together the words to describe it.

Everything feels timeless. I used to be so focused on fitting into one the present that everything felt one-dimensional, but I have created my own timeline, and nothing has ever been better. ♦

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts, totally gave me the push to post an essay on anxiety that I’ve been putting off on my blog. I’m trying to take a walk and call a friend as much as I can, since we are kind of secluded out here in the country.

    Caitlin always does such beautiful work. As a “word” person when it comes to expressing myself, it’s so cool to see someone else do it so differently

    To be honest, I don’t read the diaries very often. But you are all truly developing as people and i am happy for you all. I really think I should start a diary, but like most things, it’s hard to know where to start.
