“i never play without my cape.” // b. lugosi
i wasn’t one of those kids that found herself tying pillow cases around her neck to fly around the house saving the dog and stuffed animals from baddies and make-believe calamity.
what memory allows me, and what the stories my mum tells me, i either had a pencil and paper in hand, and bemoaned the fact that i didn’t need for glasses – because in my little head, a smart pair of specs was mandatory for the type of saving i needed to do. i wanted to organize, jot down many notes and keep everything properly and neatly arranged – alphabetical or chronological order preferred. what caped crusader could i look up to?
now, at least, i still like a good notebook and a fancy little pen, and my need for glasses is indeed a necessity – but wearing a cape has never been more appealing. perhaps now i have finally found the inspiration for my own type of superhero… and she’s a little bit like me.
