Do you ever feel like a poser? Perhaps a pseudo-intellectual who can quote poet's names but can't extend the conversation any further?
I'm pretty sure we all do on one level or another.
I'm not all that intellectual. I'm not all that bright either, it's just a misconception that's been made and is now irrevocable.
I'm just trying to get by and use my love of art and writing to express something. God knows what (I clearly don't).
And please. I beg you. Do not mistake me for someone who knows what she's talking about or who can recite "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" effortlessly. I can't. Probably never will.
As Salinger so eloquently wrote, "I'm quite illiterate, but I read a lot."
And yes. I just name-dropped.
