one of those moods..

so... what's one of the saddest movies you have ever seen. I mean, the type that actually jerk at your heart? I think I found a winner tonight, or close. I guess it is not really a competition or anything like that. It's called Broken Wings and it is an Israeli movie. Essentially, it is a movie about 3 or 4 days in the life of a really messed up family.

Not only did this movie create in me a tear or two, it put me in one of those moods. I just got back from smoking a nice pipe and sipping a beer.. yeah, it was that kind of night.

your probably asking what i was thinking about? well, not much of any one topic. i was in that mood to chat with people about this and that but i did not have any pull towards one particular subject. i guess it just felt good to talk to friends. makes life get put into a lot better perspective... probably the second biggest reason why god created us like this, to love each other.

that word has always been fairly hard to get out. it is a big deal, seriously. to say that you love someone goes beyond just a relationship and enters into a new realm, something like missing a person, or longing to be with them? i am not talking about dating/married relationships either. i am talking about the genuine friendships that exist where people are willing to say they love each other.

i think i am blabbing about crazy things again. i goes from why do we exist to what really is the real meaning behind love.

seriously, did you ever think about why god would create in us a feeling/sensation/longing/whatever for something that was built in to us? why love? why physical bonds? why emotional bonds? why do people get manipulated? why do people do irrational things for other people? what is this all about?

i guess, when god created us in his likeness, there instantly became a thing in us that desired longing.

i like that word... longing.

anyway, i saw charlie and the chocolate factory last night and thought the movie was absolutely amazing.

off to reflect on longing.
