"And once the storm is over you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, in fact, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about."
we used to talk about it until the dark of the world made me blind
I forgot about it because I nurtured the clouds in my eye
all this time I lost myself in lies, it was you I was trying to find
and though it really hurts sometimes, it was always true

I mean, on the contrary, this incredible emphasis that we all place now on our so-called careers automatically makes perceiving reality a very low priority because if your life is organized around trying to be successful in a career, well, it just doesn’t matter what you perceive or what you experience. You can really sort of shut your mind off for years ahead, in a way. You can sort of turn on the automatic pilot. You know, just the way your mother’s doctor had on his automatic pilot when he went in and he looked at the arm and he totally failed to perceive anything else.
That’s right. Our minds are just focused on these goals and plans which in themselves are not reality.
No. Goals and plans are not. I mean, they’re fantasy. They’re part of a dream life. I mean, you know, it always just does seem so ridiculous, somehow that everybody has to have his little goal in life. I mean, it’s so absurd, in a way, when you consider that it doesn’t matter which one it is.
Right. And because people’s concentration is on their goals in their life they just live each moment by habit.
- my dinner with andré
this is probably my favourite film now. mind is so blown.
think I’ll miss you forever
like the stars miss the sun in the morning sky
late is better than never
even if you’re gone, I’m going to drive, drive, drive
i’ve got that summertime, summertime sadness
