Day 18. Your personal sculptor is carving a person, thing or event from the last year of your life. What’s the statue of and what makes it so significant?
I can’t think why anyone would want to sculpt anything from my life, it’s not worthy of such grandeur. I mean, this past year hasn’t been anything to shout about. I didn’t achieve much to warrant the year being immortalized in stone. I’m just, well, normal, in a broad sense of the word that is.
But I suppose if I were to indulge in the idea of such a thing, for me, the sculpture of 2012 would be a book. A book with empty pages, a pen strategically placed as though ready to write. That would sum up how the past year has fared, ever hopeful, full of hollow ideas that never quite made it any further than my addled brain. A year of broken dreams and promises.
However, as for next year, I hope I will be able to look back on this post smiling, and say to myself… ‘look what you’ve achieved’. As to the sculpture, who knows what it will depict. Maybe you’d like to hang around and find out perhaps? Well, you can’t blame a girl for trying.
