Was really excited to see this and I’m glad to say it didn’t disappoint! Clever, original and heartfelt. :)
Becoming more and more impressed by Jonathan Safran Foer’s writing! Such an inspiring, fresh voice. :)
'You know, this necklace makes me think of this totally random memory of my mother. I was a little kid, and I was crying for one reason or another. And she was cradling me, rocking me back and forth, and I can just remember the silver balls rolling around. And there was like snot running down my nose. And she offered me her sleeve and told me to blow my nose into it. And I can remember, even as a little kid, thinking to myself, this is love… this is love'
This is for all the people I’ll never meet. This is for the person I might have kissed had I taken a different subway line on Saturday and the person I might have been if that boy hadn’t broken my mother’s teenage heart. This is for the people I would have loved if last winter hasn’t been so cold and for the city I would have called home if I had written haikus on napkins and carried pens in dress pockets and in the knots of my hair. This is for who I was, who I am, who I might be. This is for you.
Mamihlapinatapei (Yagan, an indigenous language of Tierra del Fuego): The wordless yet meaningful look shared by two people who desire to initiate something, but are both reluctant to start.
One of my favourite Friends moments!
Sometimes I can hear my bones straining under the weight of all the lives I’m not living.
Finally got around to watching this, it did not disappoint! Clever, fresh and original. :) Makes me wonder if I would erase someone from my memory, given the opportunity? :P
