Sometimes I believe in as many as six impossible things before breakfast.
"Bad things happen, but you can still live."
Super 8 is one of my new fav films. Great messages and tons of animal symbolism, particularly in the alien life form. The main characters show unrelenting love in the face of fearful opposition to their differences, as well as to those of the alien. Pain bred fear in those who suffered through it, not simply as a matter of course, but because those who experienced it allowed pain to sew its seeds. Here, the main characters don’t attempt to force-feed love. Instead, the male and female characters live by example, simply demanding respect for their freedom to choose a different path from those around them. In the end, loved ones who opposed the main characters differences embraced those contentious principles. Would I that all life experiences ended this way. And, so, I continue to hope, believe in love, and understand human frailty.
We’re on a journey. At least, that’s how I feel. And, this song is a moving reminder of the importance of personal growth amidst the shifting backdrop of life.
Makes me want to jump in the car and cruise cross-country on a summer day. Roll down the windows, and crank it up!!
