Dracula is a favorite film of mine. It's one of those films and in a way, it
remains in your mind and makes you question what you really want in life.
Do you want to live forever so you can live in pain? Or do you want to die
in peace? That's always been a question. Two things are for sure--Life and death.
There is a poem I once wrote--about Nature and its existence--that the only
thing permanent in the world is change. That is one thing both book and film
taught me. It also taught me about connection. Connection to one another, and
connection to giving a face to your fears. Once your fears have a face, there is
no reason to fear them. What's there to fear after that? I took Romantic literature
this semester and it showed me that the Romantics believed in things perceived--
I learned that well. I found the things around me were being perceived in a different
way. Many illusions around me. But I don't have to see them...
