"When we can no longer dream, we die" -Emma Goldman

so i finished the curious case of benjamin button and it was one of the most beautiful, moving films that i have ever seen. at the end, i cried(which is a rare occasion). and as i lay there, with silent tears rolling down my cheeks at an increasing quantity, i realized that THAT was the love i wanted. Daisy stays with him when he is a 5 yr old with heavy-set dementia, all the while loving him and never questioning her motives for being there. it was just so powerful that they stayed together all that time. and her last words were: come back to me, benjamin. and then she saw the death hummingbird and i cried. it was so sad and powerful yet there remained an underlying(almost subliminal) message of hope, hope for the future, hope that this can happen. and i cried at that. geez, i need to stop crying! but seriously, i will shoot someone if they don't win at least 1275747397848978 academy awards on sunday!
