the chase...

sometimes i think we constantly search for the things that we can't have in life...
but sometimes i think when we have the opportunity to have that one thing, we let it go for anything else.

i am fearful to fulfill that desire or am i fearful that once i have it that i won't desire more...?

i think about Rob (john cusacks' character in High Fidelity) when he remarks about womens underpants and how he thought he would be surrounded by sexy underwear to come to the realization that that women saved the sexy panties for the nights that they knew that they were going to have sex...

later he remarks that he doesn't want the fantasy but he wants to be with Laura because she was real...

do we constantly search and look for this fantasy that doesn't exist...?

interesting post bro. i know for me that it is the fantasy/dream/hopes that keep me going in life, whether its work or love. reality of it is, is that it's a double edged sword. it keeps me working harder, but at the same time, it doesnt allow me to settle with what i have. it's that saying where you dont know what you have until its gone. it bit me in the ass a few times, but regardless of whether i learned from it, it just seems inevitable.
