Log in

on the top of the world (south italy)

It is the element of surprise that makes life worth while. So why do we fight it and try to ruin it?

Today I went to the supermarket. I had been at school all day writing. My eyes had shopping bags underneath and I was just walking in a kind of a tired trance. Then a guy looks at me, he looks at me and smiles. When I feel at my worst and I'm not even begging for attention. When I wear the clothes that make me feel the least of a woman. And someone smiles at me, gives me a glance and makes me visible from all the other crowd - even if it's just for the two of us.

That is to live for. That is what makes the world go round in the most pleasant way. When two strangers make each other visible for a moment.
