no reason

no reason
no purpose
just a movie
a song (best heard loud)
and
a quote:

garden state
new slang by the shins

"This is your one opportunity to do something that no one has ever done before and that no one will copy throughout human existence. And if nothing else, you will be remembered as the one guy who ever did this. This one thing." - Sam

But of course you would like Garden State - I do too - very much. I have (had?) a long-lost love in America, for whom I would have dropped everything (at one point) and to hell with the consequences - that film always reminds me of the power of doing somehting genuinely spontaneous, and the enormous temptation, for someone like me, who lives his life by plan and agenda and diary, to just throw it all away and take a leap into the unknown. But I never did, and nor did she, and sometimes she and I reminisce wistfully about it, across the Atlantic, by e-mail. Funny.

I'm going to New York tomorrow, to see one of my uni friends get married. I shall be away for 3 weeks - I just wanted to say something to you - make contact - berfore I went. Look after yourself. J xx

i loved that film so much.. the humour, the music, the really subtle emotions, and all the little bits of it that i can relate to somehow in my own life.

i hope you are having a lovely time in new york jehosephat. keep safe.
