James Thurber wrote it many years before I was born! The moment I read it in my teenage years, I could immediately connect. I love day dreaming and act in fantasies. I can do it anytime, anywhere, mostly when I am alone. I have acted as most of the known heroes and of late I enjoy creating my own.
I need google map to drive as I was in Manhattan when I was driving through KK Road in Kottayam and I don’t remember any landmark
I dream also. Dreaming made me relatively successful. But day dreaming gives me the thrill
Then I saw the movie “The secret life of Walter Mitty ” acting Ben Stiller. Yes that’s me!
Apparently there is another one produced before I was born, starring Danny Kaye. I must look in Netflix!
“Ground Control to Major Tom” (David Bowie -RIP) is on my lips even now.
Read the story or watch the movie and you will know what I am talking about.
Create your own fantasies and act in them as heroes!
