Never been in love with a movie title before, but this particular one tangled itself to a fragment of my thoughts which kept rising above the upheaved contemplations, tingling the ceiling overhead. The perpetual serenity that a pristine mind can offer seemed to be the ‘happily ever after’ song the mind was singing all long.
I stepped outside the pages of my book, leaving behind the stories I carry and undressing the characters I play, to be no one for a while. I don’t know if this is possible or whether I making it up or people like me living in books could actually venture outside.

To graciously walk through your plans,
Never let me go of them,
For I wish to smile through every mile.
