I should NOT have gone to see that film last night...it made me cry. Lots.
It wasn't just the recent situation that did it, well mostly, or the story itself - though that was a large part of it... It just really got me thinking about memories in general, how they fade, and how important it is to hold onto them - even the bad ones which give you a sense of perspective on things...
And it frightened me how some memories MUST be lost along the way - probably once treasured ones - either through old age, alcohol or even alzheimers... Makes me want to keep the memories I have of things - past relationships or whatever - even more. Made me glad I had a livejournal to trigger them even...
And it made me think how all precious moments must be seized... and certainly not thrown away in haste when under pressure or through self-doubt or panic... in case you risk missing out on them as a good experience entirely and waste opportunities for real and long-lasting happiness in life.
Carpe Diem. Carpe Noctem. Carpe Jugulem.
(and this applies to everything - not just relationships)
So I cried like a bloody baby, and was very very upset indeed. Fantastic bloody film but not the best timing to have seen it.
Ho hum. It's on my MUST BUY ON DVD list now.
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
missbumpkin was very very kind - took me off to the Nowhere for a coke and got me some tobacco so I could have a much needed cigarette...then we walked up to fart_pellet's for a cup of tea and a chat before she drove me home at midnight.
Thankyou to you both for an utterly fantastic weekend... I've had a marvellous time (despite the snivelling and drunkenbehaviour) - an absolute blast and you are both very lovely and hospitable people. LOVE YOU BOTH!!!
Ok, now I need cigafee...
