Neverland

I would like to find Neverland, someday again. It seems recently to have somehow become lost amongst the bitter tribulations of reality, repressed under a thick blanket of narrow perception. How easily do children see thorough that very same blanket, through the gaps into Neverland. A brief escape this afternoon, the movie Finding Neverland tells the tale of writer James Matthew Barrie and the apparent events leading up to the conception of the Peter Pan story. I'm not sure how much is real and how much is purely fiction, but it's a good story nonetheless.

It's rather peculiar, that one particular day when you just look around at yourself and your life and realise that you're actually a grownup, or at least are supposed to be one by all social standards. I don't feel at all that different really. I mean I know I've changed quite a bit over time, but essentially I'm still the same person I was all those years ago. I definitely don't feel like a grownup, at least not how I envisaged the experience of adulthood might be like. I guess that perhaps no one ever really grows up completely, that there's always some small portion, no matter how tiny a fragment, of childhood that survives inside.

From what I've heard, Neverland is not too far away. All you have to do is believe – or see the movie.


Clap your hands if you believe in fairies

It can be easy to lose focus of the lighter and fantastical side of life as we grow older, i can't wait to go and see the film myself, being something of a peter pan, depp and winslet fan. and by the way, Hi :)
