Remember the movie Labyrinth, with David Bowie and Jennifer Connelly? It was one of my favorite movies when I was little. Anyway, I was thinking about it, and I feel like Jennifer Connelly's character towards the end of the movie. She is in that labyrinth of stairs and can see her little brother, but no matter what staircase she takes, she just can't reach him.
I can see what I want in sight, but the stairs I keep taking lead me in a different direction. Life is one big optical illusion and it makes me crazy.
