fitzcarraldo

Use in a sentence: The little gold boat I saw in the National Museum of Ireland became my fitzcarraldo, tossed up by big waves of longing and wedged on the rocky ledges of my brain, where it stuck—high and dry.

dictionaryofobscuresorrows:

n. an image that somehow becomes lodged deep in your brain—maybe washed there by a dream, or smuggled inside a book, or planted during a casual conversation—which then grows into a wild and impractical vision that keeps scrambling back and forth in your head like a dog stuck in a car that’s about to arrive home, just itching for a chance to leap headlong into reality.
