Seven Years in two days... Going to try and do something Ecker-manly this weekend.

2008-07-16 Solace Found

Not too long ago I watched American Beauty for the first time since Jeremy left us. At the end when Kevin Spacey’s character (Lester Burnham) is talking I couldn't help but imagine Jeremy saying those exact same words. 

"I guess I could be pretty pissed off about what happened to me... but it's hard to stay mad, when there's so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I'm seeing it all at once, and it's too much, my heart fills up like a balloon that's about to burst..."

"...and then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can't feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life..."


"You have no idea what I'm talking about, I'm sure. But don't worry..."

"You will someday."
