“We were together. I forget the rest.”
This week has been one of *those* weeks. The kind where a million little (and not so little) bad decisions you’ve made are all coming home to sit right down on the sofa, and say, oh hey! remember us? …all at the same time. On one hand, there’s the “let’s just pull the band-aid off” school of thinking. And I usually subscribe to that… because if something bad is going to happen, the worst part is not knowing when it’s going to come. To my thinking, anyway. And that’s all fine and good… but the reality of that… can be a bit tougher to navigate. But I digress. So here I was, stewing about all these little, big and in betweens that have landed me here and I decided (as is my wont) to meander around the internets, and ended up on one of my favorites, Alice Q. Foodie. (She has a Tumblr now, did you know it?) And I came across this wickedly, perfectly intense image from Moonrise Kingdom. I have to say, it was probably my least favorite of all the Wes Anderson movies, but I still loved it, and Suzy Bishop is a girl after my own heart. There are many memorable lines, but maybe my favorite is when Sam is first love struck by her and says, after coolly assessing Suzy and her friends all dressed as various birds,
“No… what kind of bird are YOU?”
Indeed. I’m still trying to figure that out, friends.
Or maybe, a more apt meditation for me might be what Suzy says to Sam, in the final scene…
“I think you’ve still got lightning in you.”
I do. I really do. Methinks it’s time to harness it.
