I have been nosing around your blog and sidebar...it is all so interesting and thought-provoking.

I see you like "Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind." A friend told me I had to see it, when in an emotional moment, I complained that I wished I could just totally forget a love I had lost. She said, "you'll see what that would really mean." The movie was cathartic for me; it just demolished me at times, but i loved it just the same, or maybe because of that. I see you also like "Reds", Lydia's favorite movie. That's at the top of my Netflix queue...I have never seen it.

I also especially love the quote from Neruda.
