"write down a positive memory" — July 11, 2021
I am playing Ocarina of Time. I am playing Final Fantasy VII. I am playing Shadow of the Colossus. I’m opening the N64 for the first time. I’m in the magazine store, trying to read a PC Gamer piece on Diablo, in full-blown English. It doesn’t matter; when the understanding fails, I create the words. Nothing is lacking; the world is complete, always. I sleep, I recreate the world; I wake up, the world is renewed again. I’m walking on real streets, virtual streets; then they’re the same, then it doesn’t matter. I am an actor that can do any role, live any life, be anywhere, feel anything. I’m powerful; I’m sublime; I’m a child; I’m playing, I’m living.
