The Exorcist 

Whilst reading Emma Tripplet’s new book stepping out of the clouds I was put in mind of one of my first dates with my ex. 

We went to a late night screening of the Exorcist supposedly the most horrific horror film ever made. 

I went in, having never really seen a horror movie, thinking to myself it’s a film it’s not real. well looking back I think this ruined the film for me, by the end I had my exes fingernails clearly dug into my hand where the film had scared her. 

I was quite calm and thinking well that was good but not scary. 

But looking back I think unknowingly I had prepared my emotional self, to stay calm as it was only a film. 

So even then I was unknowingly preparing my emotional self for death was to come.
