Carrie is close to going crazy for not being able to get something going with regard to her broken dreams about becoming an artist. But having been out of the practice for almost 20 years, having fried her brain more than once with coke in her younger days and now being caught up in family and dead end job … that gives her a constant feeling of not having time, space or energy to move on this path. Maybe she just has to let go and accept it is over. But then what?
Finished 16 December 2018, and taking place that day as well.
About a lonely cop – Jon – trying to figure out if he has the courage to start a relationship with a lonely waitress – Carrie. Or if he even should, since he (rightly) suspects she, like himself, is ‘damaged goods’. Jon due to his alcoholic father and Carrie due to her former drug-use. In actuality they both need each other, but as often is the case – it is very, very hard to see that when you feel like the world’s greatest mess yourself …
This story I finished in December 2018, but it takes place in 2005. Soundtrack “She’s Like The Wind” by Patrick Swayze and Wendy Fraser (ah, nostalgia!).
