And this bag was just… dancing with me. Like a little kid begging me to play with it. For fifteen minutes. That’s the day I realized that there was this entire life behind things, and this incredibly benevolent force that wanted me to know there was no reason to be afraid. Ever. Sometimes there’s so much beauty in the world I feel like I can’t take it… and my heart is going to cave in.
Except from American Beauty
