american beauty – movie
The most beautiful scene is definitely the scene about the plastic cover that keeps swirling in the wind, as if it an eternal dance, just flowing, not with the self-conscious grace, but that of an entranced lyrics that just flow with the music.

I guess I could be pretty pissed off about what happened to me… but it’s hard to stay mad, when there’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once, and it’s too much, my heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst…
…and then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life…
You have no idea what I’m talking about, I’m sure. But don’t worry…
You will someday
Why im writing this? The magic of the movie for one and another, the emotions and nostalgia hit you hard for things you havent done, things you should have, but were afterall doing other things, and now wondering how come that i dont have memories of them? Its not the missing of the moments with my friends that concerns me, what frightens me is if i had really bungled up real bad that im trying to think what made me happy during those times,frightening the living daylights hell out of me when asking myself if what i have of me till now is just a untold invisible legacy…The rush of emotions that hit me made me speak words not to be spoken.
And when we cool down, we know one lesson. And as my dearest friend L~ said “If you gain something you lose something”. Something as simple she said, guess she didnt understand how prophetic it was for me.
For all the nostalgia they had, i had something else and i guess i can squander it just like that by telling it here, can i? 😉 wink, wink
