Bella

Dan and I just saw the most hauntingly beautiful movie last night.  It was full of forgiveness and redemption–all of those things you hope to see and feel in real life, but sometimes don’t.  It’s about two people at the end of their rope, and how they begin to offer a metaphorical lifeline to each other, in the tenderest of ways.

Of course I cried.  You’d have to have a hard heart not to.

Just as Lars and the Real Girl is a rare movie to portray the church in a complimentary way, so Bella portrayed Latinos in a joyous and celebratory way–without the cliché of drugs, prostitution, and gangs.  A thoughtful and passionate telling of human emotions–pain, humiliation, and loss.

See it this holiday season, if you’re looking for something uplifting–something that will redeem your faith in humanity.

The quote I live by

Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart. Try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books written in a foreign language. Do not now look for the answers. They cannot now be given to you because you could not live them. It is a question of experiencing everything. At present you need to live the question. Perhaps you will gradually, without even noticing it, find yourself experiencing the answer, some distant day.
--Rainer Maria Rilke in Letters to a Young Poet
