a reminder.



some stories don't
have a clear beginning,
middle, and end. life
is about not knowing,
having to change,
taking the moment and 
making the best of it,
without knowing what's 
going to happen next.
delicious ambiguity...






gilda radner




delicious ambiguity. mmm. perfection.

last week i got home at two in 
the morning knowing i had to be back
 at work at 8 am. 
and it was this quote messaged  
to me by camilla 
that kept me going.

i think i'm a nerd because i instantly thought of this quote from lord of the rings, my favorite movie perhaps:

"Frodo: I can't do this, Sam.
Sam: I know. It's all wrong. By rights we shouldn't even be here. But we are. It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it's only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn't. They kept going. Because they were holding on to something.
Frodo: What are we holding onto, Sam?
Sam: That there's some good in this world, Mr. Frodo... and it's worth fighting for.

haha yes i'm a NERD.

love you girl!

leah jane said...

i just love the way you offer a wonderfully profound quote with your own equally profound insight. so much so that i copied it. do you mind?

This probably wasn't what you had in mind, but I've often wanted to write a story/novel that didn't have a beginning/middle/end like most of them do. I'd like to write one that meandered and didn't make sense (such as life is). I'm not sure it would be very readable, but it might be interesting to try. ;)
