Two Seconds to New

I used to be this person who believed in romance.
I believed in that happily ever after part at the end of the movie.
When the two lovers find their love.
The moments that bring a smile and let everyone know the world is ok.

Some where along the way I let it go.

I became cynical;
Worn out.

I unlearned the meanings of beauty;

Instead I started focusing on darkness;

I started noticing the one second in the film.
The exact millisecond before they get it.
In that second they are as low as they can go
It is always their breaking point; hope through the hopelessness.

In the film they come away from it.
Characters are written to find the perfection in the millisecond that follows.
The starkly distant moment from the reality they just lived.
In a new moment everything is whole.

They find inside themselves the strength;

I want my second second.
I want it now.
It is time to write it.
Time to arc.

Here's to your second! Beautiful piece.

Oh, no!..
You're not one of those who talk through every scene, ruining it for the rest of us who actually like to watch it all unfold on it's own..?!
So acknowledge that your taste has changed, and move on.

Stop. Shift. and Risk.

> Go see some stupid-fresh-knee-slapper like "Hangover".
And then go see something so strikingly stunning as "The Piano". something so odd and old as "A Star is Born" with Kris & Babs. Mix it up.

OR> you can claim a new mix of movies where the sex scenes look like there's no acting involved at all!

>"Brown Bunny"2003:
Chloe Sevigny & Vincent Gallo;gross.
>"Wild Orchid"1990:
Mickey Rourke & Carre Otis
>"The Sailor Who Fell From Grace With The Sea"1976:
Kris Kristofferson & Sarah Miles
>"Don't Look Now" 1973:
Donald Sutherland & Julie Christie

Open mind...;P

Now the way I read this blog and I could be wrong..which is quite often..Sure the happy endings in movies are not always real..but you leave the theater happy. In life, it is up to us, to make our own happiness.

It's hard to forever be the romantic. This world makes it difficult to nurture that naiveté, bombarding us with the news and events everywhere we turn...wish there was a way to turn it all off or at lest tune it out...all the's gotten so even children can't be children anymore. Maybe Fredonia wouldn't be such a bad place to live!
