Accidentally MARY CHRISTINA GOODFELLOW

(This is neither a statement nor a story)


I am walking in a graveyard, counting my steps, looking for some ideas to live with for the next two weeks. The fact that makes here important is that there is the final stop for us all; no matter how hard we try. Everything is randomly placed here. Random stones, names, genders, beliefs and ages sleeping all together singing persistent symphony of silence.
I am still counting. At the twenty-ninth step, I stop. There it is. Now I have a stone with a name on it. The name is not my name or the stone’s. Another person used to use it long ago as the most conceptual part of her belongings. I lie down on the stone as if I am a part of it, imitating to be the woman who is lying underneath. I do not want to know who she was or what she did. The only thing that matters to me is how possibly I can explain the name without using words. I am looking for faces, some lines, shapes and patterns to be signifiers for the name, the randomly chosen name; therefore I am looking for a random face. Some nonexistent “thing” that can be related to the other “thing” that already exists, a sign that helps me to picture an unknown.
Names are the most conceptual things that we own. Everyone knows us by a name, which in fact does not define who we really are. We think that we know people when we know their names. But is that true? Linguistically names are simply some symbols or codes we use to differentiate people from each other. We carry these codes all through our lives. Then we die and the only thing is remaining from what we used to be is being abstracted in our names, the names that no longer represents a face. Now they are just a concept for another concept.
