if you never try, you'll never know

"i believe in music the way some people believe in fairy tales. but i hear it came from my mother and father. once upon a time, they fell in love." ~ august

this is one of the most beautiful films i've ever seen, and one of the most personal. i cried through the entire film, not a moment where i was not so emotionally moved that i did not feel as if my soul was opening up. and it left me changed, hopeful, more alive. i am not sure how to explain it without it seeming ridiculous. it just mattered to me, in ways that i have no words.

Isn't it amazing how great inspirational art whether be in books, a play, music or a movie finds us and reaches us when we really need it the most. I've had this happen to me many a time. It's the most beautiful thing when you connect with an artwork. When you feel yr life reflecting back at you. It's a personal experience that no one may understand but it means so much to you.

I live for these moments.
