my rebellion is to stay the same



In the end my inclinations prevailed. My rebellion is to stay the same. 




I was watching Mademoiselle C -- a documentary about former editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris, Carine Roitfeld -- on Netflix. And she said these two lines, off-handedly, snuck in with all the others. And I paused the television, and dropped the remote, sprinted to jot it down, fresh.

Because I love that idea -- that rebellion isn't existing in response to something else. But, simply to be. Unapologetically. To full-fledgedly be. It's passive, almost, that verb-- my rebellion is to stay the same. But then -- we know it really isn't passive at all.

That's an odd and wonderful notion if you ask me. I'm going to think on it awhile.
