130. SYLVIA PLATH: The fig tree. For everyone that knows me this is the tattoo that I want the most. This passage in the book meant so much to me. The fig tree with one red heart
“My heartbeat boomed like a dull motor in my ears.” “I took a deep breath and listened to the old brag of my heart.” “I am, I am, I am.” — Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar
Love this book!! defines part of my existence. We all at one point believe ourselves to be losing our mind. In this book we can see a transformation and the feelings that take over without understanding or constraint.
