Reader's Diary #1221- Magela Baudoin: Vertical Dream

Magela Baudoin's "Vertical Dream" is more of a snapshot than a story. I'm close to calling it a character study, but that doesn't quite capture it either. It's more of an episode study. It's about a girl who's about to be leaving home to attend university. In the restless sleep of the preceding night she's hit with some pretty profound insights.

In her thought processes, there is a growing awareness that others go through the same or similar moments of insecurities, but ironically that seems to make her feel more alone.

It's certainly a beautifully rendered piece, but steer clear if you're looking for something plot-driven.
