Day 20: A place you want to visit.
I fell in love with Tokyo
when I watched Lost in Translation
last summer, when I was alone
and lying on our old bed in our old flat
in that old town.
Maybe it was Scarlett Johansson that did it.
Maybe I was happy.
Either way, I'm going. I want
to experience another world.
I have been inside for too long.
I want to try the food and see
the lights and the people
the way things are done
how the language sounds
spoken in every day life.
I don't want to go alone, but
I don't know who will go with me.
I will go, though.
I don't know anything about the place, just
that it looks like a city of jewels and endless
intrigue. Like everything that is far away.
Like moon and stars and clouds.
Maybe I will be lonely, maybe
I will be lost in translation,
but I am drawn to Japan.
I want to travel, and this
will be my final destination -
the place I want to visit most.
