Reticent Mental Property

FEED My MIND: Adventure. Learn. Live. Write.



Let’s talk, yes?

It’s a spring evening. There are a few days of storms rolling through. We have the humidity in mid-May that defies July’s trend setting style.

Pull in scenes of Gatsby, Gatsby when sitting in the drawing room, sweltering and shiny.

G wants his lover, Daisy, to come clean, to share all, to declare her loyalty and all she can do is fan herself in the heat, eat the ice.

Gatsby though, he presses forward. He declares. He brings a vision from his head and heart into stagnant, silent, stillness.

Tom, he struts and expects more love than he offers, fewer lies than he has told, more kindness than he brings.

The cigarette smoke lingers, circles, swallows the words as they hang naked and bared.


There are times when she needs a fast car, a long road, a gorgeous destination and a good fuck.

    Just remember, Gatsby et al didn’t end well

      Define well. Daisy was unattainable. Gatsby had no purpose. His wealth, empire, was unsustainable. He had no one at his funeral. What was his next step?

        You know that. I know that. But Gatsby never accepted that fact. He built the Great Gatsby to be so alluring that Daisy would run to his side. He built Gatsby to be Daisy’s man instead of being his own man.

        I know you are different. You are being Ret’s woman and no one else’s. Don’t ever change that

          I am not changing that.
          I do, however, have to change my own expectations and define my own needs and create my own success.
