Storyboard Text

  • Sometimes my notes look like I was furious with the writers, as I was trying to unriddle his text. I feel like my notes are just telling me "Can't you just figure out what you are reading!"
  • Students are the most humble, only leaving the necessary words like "metaphor" or "imagery" along the boarders of their pages. Or they are admirers who applaud from the empty canvases, as they shout "absolutely".
  • And if you have ever managed to never jot down the phrase "Man vs. nature" down along the margins. Now is that time to take the leap forward. To show that we have all marked along the boarders. So that we can show, that we did not just laze in a chair flipping through the pages. But rather we pressed are own thoughts into the margins.
  • Even the ancient Irish monks indicate their most inner thoughts along the margins of the old gospels like the pains of the world. But they also told of the simple thoughts, like a bird singing on the window, or seeing the sun glisten in the window.
  • Yet the one thought that still stays with me, dangling like a locket. Was written in the Catcher of the Rye. I had borrowed the book for a summer reading. During that slow hot summer I felt a vast loneliness, until I found a few smears in the book. Next to the smears a note was written. I could tell it was by a beautiful girl who I would never meet because of what the soft writing, it said "Excuse the stains, but I think I'm in love".
