  • I want to be a Francophile but I don’t know if I can pull it off.

  • I want to be a Literati but I don’t know if I can pull it off.
  • I want to be a Castrati but I don’t know if I can pull it off.
  • I want to be a Beat but I don’t know if I can pull it off.
  • I want to have the ability to be amazed like a child but I don’t know if that’s possible anymore.
Maybe that’s why people get bitter. Bitter, not better. They have Great Expectations for the world and when they get to adulthood it isn’t as they expected and are let down.
I can feel myself becoming less influenced by the things I experience, as if my heart is hardening to the outside world. What would I be like if I had seen Pierrot le Fou earlier in life, would it have changed me, instead of simply being “this French movie I didn’t totally understand”? What if I had read On the Road last year rather than when I was 20? What if I had read Old Man and the Sea when I was 20 rather than this past April?
