i have been reading a blog recently that is always beautiful and often profound.

"it's hard for me to tell sometimes because i'm in love with love and this is something i've grown to accept, i'll never ask my head to come down from the clouds because that is where i think it belongs. you fall farther when you live way up there but you live better, you live so much better."

in a similar vein i watched this film for the first time in quite a while.

"i don't know who i am. i'm like cat here. we're a couple of no-name slobs. we belong to nobody, and nobody belongs to us. we don't even belong to each other."

it came to my attention that i spend an awful lot of time wondering what it's like to belong to someone and for someone to belong to you.

"i had fun, but i didn't really have anyone i particularly loved. and i still don't, except for loving friends. but i mean, i haven't been in love with anyone in years and years. but i have a certain amount of faith that it'll come."
