When connections are real, they simply never die. They can be buried or ignored or walked away from, but never broken. If you’ve deeply resonated with another person or place, the connection remains despite any distance, time, situation, lack of presence, or circumstance. If you’re doubtful then just try it – go and revisit a person or place and see if there’s any sense at all of the space between now and then. If it was truly real, you’ll be instantly swept back into the moment it was before it left – during the same year and place with the same wonder and hope, comfort and heartbeat. Real connections live on forever.
~ Victoria Erickson
Yesterday I was consumed by this strong unreasonable urge to make a movie. It happened after I saw Karwaan. The movie resonated with me at different levels but most of all travel and the ridiculousness of life itself. While the characters seem to be on a voyage to finding themselves there is nothing there to find really. One moment you are this and the next moment you are that. It’s just our view of ourselves and the understanding of the world that changes. They have a term in Zen for that. It’s called Satori.
So in this ridiculous universe is it mad for me to think that I should make a movie?
I remembered something :
When life itself seems lunatic, who knows where madness lies? Perhaps to be too practical is madness. To surrender dreams — this may be madness. Too much sanity may be madness — and maddest of all: to see life as it is, and not as it should be!
~ Miguel de Cervantes, Don Quixote
“Do you know what the Mexicans say about the Pacific?”
“They say the Pacific has no memory. That’s where I want to live the rest of my life. A warm place with no memory.”
