The Edge

"I want to think of dangerous and noble things to be light and frolicsome. I want to be improbable, beautiful, and afraid of nothing as though I had wings." 
Mary Oliver

I am afraid of many things. 
The dentist.
The doctor.
Of the future. 
Of mistakes.
Of heartbreak.
Of forgetting.
Of being told that I'm unwell.
To go somewhere new.
To admit my faults.
To fail.
Of change.
But also of things staying the same.
 Of showing too much of myself.
And of not showing enough.
 To live life over the edge. 
But if I live life in fear. How will I enjoy any moment of it?

"The edge. There is no honest way to explain it. 
Because the only ones who know where it is, are the ones who have gone over. 
The others, the living, are those who push their control as far as they felt they could handle it, and then they pulled pack.
Or slowed down.
But the edge is still out there."

The Scared is Scared

This is gorgeous. Adorable. Absolutely loveable. 
It puts a smile on my face when my brain is having stupid attacks of emotion. 
Which is often.
So I watch this.
And I smile.
 Can this kid get any cuter or smarter????!

"If something feels like it's closing, you should just say
 'OK, I'm Fine'. 
I usually let it go and just think of something that I really like to do,
and you just think of something else, until the nervous has gone put of you. 
I let that thing disappear out of my head, 
out of my ears, 
out of my mouth.
When the scared feeling comes into you,
 the scared is scared of the things you like.
So I was scared of a monster, 
and I thought of pizza. 
And Juice. 
And some meringues.
And a cookie. 
Chocolate chip cookie. 
I mean OATMEAL cookie. 
And then I ate it all up. 
And some milk.
And the cookie was shaped like a piano, 
a keyboard I mean."

Beauty in the Sky

"We were shooting for a commercial with my DP waiting for an helicopter flying into the sunset, when thousands and thousands of birds came and made this incredible dance in the sky."

I wish to witness this some day.
It is absolutely stunning.
Always looking up. There is so much beauty in the sky.

This is a little bit adorable.

First-time director John Kahrs merges computer-generated and hand-drawn animation techniques in this beautiful animated, Oscar-nominated, short film, Paperman.

 In short, it's a story about the magic of that 'love at first sight' feeling.
While I've only posted the trailer, you should definitely watch the whole 6 mins here.
