“In the consciousness of the truth he has perceived, man now sees everywhere only the awfulness or the absurdity of existence and loathing seizes him.” – Friedrich Nietzsche

She needed to climb higher to make sure her perception of the world wasn’t clouded. Sometimes you need to get a different view to get a better perspective. As she surveyed the world around her, what struck her was how grey everything was, people said this was merely the smog and the cloudy weather but she had noticed that lately all the colour and vivacity of life had been sucked out of her reality. Where did it go? Instead of anger seizing her, a strange sense of elation struck her. The truth of reality is what you make of it, acknowledging her power and strength in being able to build her own existence, realising she wasn’t a mere being powerless to succumb, she could create and change. She wanted to shout it for all to hear but it fell on deaf ears. She smiled upon her climb down, and the opening line of a poem from her past played in her head “We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of dreams…” [Cecilia Garcia]
