Diary 14 / 24-years-old / Rome, Italy
When I was twenty-four I was flown to Rome to be in a movie with Vincent Gallo and Ernest Borgnine. Craziness ensued, including falling in love with the first Giovanni I met.  At the point of this entry, after a couple months back in New York, I’m returning to Rome to make a go of a long-distance relationship.  And then my mom visits…

  1. Interesting project Caroline. I’m not really sure what it is you expect to come from it or what you want out of it, other than a journey in self discovery. Will this benefit you emotionally, or will it turn you to a spiral of destructive introspection? I guess we’ll find out.

    Either way, thanks for being a net contributor to the human story and posting something genuinely unique.

    1. Thanks for your comment, and for taking the time to visit the site! I’m finding the journey has very little to do with me at all–I’m hoping most to encourage and share with others. That’s starting to happen, and it’s very exciting. As for what it *is* doing to me, personally–I wouldn’t call it self-discovery, but there is a sense of time-discovery. My understanding and relationship to time is widening, and leveling. I find I have a very wide scope and understanding of time, and that actually makes each day a little more immediate *and* a little more neutral. It’s hard to explain, and very cool. It’s almost like having access to any particular day of my life, is this great leveler, that calms me in my day-to-day consideration of things that are happening. Not sure that makes any sense 🙂 but I find it fascinating. Thank you, again.

      1. This is cool to hear about your experience thus far! I like the idea of being that connected to our past in all it’s highs and lows which can help with those of the present and future. Thanks for sharing! This video touched on a lot of emotion for me about our relationships to our parents. What you wrote was really beautiful!

        1. 🙂 She says it best, really: “There are two facts that all children need to disprove sooner or later; mother and father. If you go on believing in the fiction of your own parents, it is difficult to construct any narrative of your own.”
