"The newspaper stories were like dreams to us, bad dreams dreamt by others. How awful, we would say, and they were, but they were awful without being believable. They were too melodramatic, they had a dimension that was not the dimension of our lives.
We were the people who were not in the papers. We lived in the blank white spaces at the edges of the print. It gave us more freedom.
We lived in the gaps between the stories."


—Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid’s Tale.  (via walk-through-walls)

How To Build a Fire

How to build a fire

You rub two sticks together. You try this as a child and it produces nothing. Maybe you’re using the wrong sticks. Maybe your arms are too small and too weak to keep it up long enough.

How to build a fire

You use a match because your fingers never got the hang of using lighters.  And you find something satisfyingly about about running the match against the side of a box.

How to build a fire

Mother sits on the curb outside of Barnes and Noble. In one hand she hold her purchase, a book of advice to quit smoking. With the other hand she lights her cigarette. Her latest attempt to stop smoking lasted a day and a half. You don’t judge. At least not much.

The fire is a metaphor.

How to build a fire

Dad uses a long lighter to start fires on Sundays. My brother throw what should be the last week’s recycling into the flames. You worry that they will burn themselves to death one day.

How to build a fire

Say you have a fire in your heart. Listen to that Bastille song about fire on repeat. Say you’re a lion not a girl. Or a wolf. Or whatever your favorite animal is that week. Construct a scenario where your life is not mundane. Even if it’s only in your head.

The fire is a metaphor.
