And even when you know the way it’s gonna blow,
It’s hard to get around the wind.
Rosamund Pike as Amy Elliott-Dunne in Gone Girl
I have to believe in a world outside my own mind. I have to believe that my actions still have meaning, even if I can’t remember them. I have to believe that when my eyes are closed, the world’s still there. Do I believe the world’s still there? Is it still out there?… Yeah. We all need mirrors to remind ourselves who we are. I’m no different.
