secret life of walter mitty

“To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, draw closer, to find each other, and to feel. That’s the purpose of life.” -Secret Life of Walter Mitty.

As life came by to me so fast, I forgot to stop and think what I’m feeling at the moment. For past few days, this phrase has been bugging me- ‘to feel’. It wasn’t until I was reminded of this quote from Secret Life of Walter Mitty. I decided to go on the tag and saw all of the adventures Walter Mitty had in his mind as well his life. I was reminded that I was born to see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind the walls, draw closer, to find each other and to feel. At this moment, I just want to feel again. To feel the spark of hope. To feel butterflies in my stomach before meeting someone. To feel my imagination. To feel my art. To feel at least something again. My life has been so much of a dread. I crave something that makes me feel again. I crave life in the mountains. I crave wandering like there’s no tomorrow. I crave adventures where there’s no plans for tomorrow. I crave for an one way ticket to the world without any date of return. Something?
