7 random things

Today in her blog "Creature Comforts," Ez wrote 7 random things about herself. The very last one was one which I share greatly in common with her, which is crying a lot. Not just necessarily at sad things, but at true happiness and beauty as well. She then went on to share this quote from American Beauty:

"Sometimes there's so much beauty in the world I feel like I can't take it, like my heart's going to cave in."

I still haven't seen American Beauty, but that line hit me so hard - how often this happens to me. Not to get too touchy feely on you, but sometimes when I'm alone and I've just seen something particularly innocent, innovative, beautiful, or observant, I can cry for hours. This line is so stunningly perfect, I felt the need to share it. Now, please don't find me a highly irrational person because of this - it's just a little piece of myself I can never sum up in words. Thank you Ez!

I cry much more easily over happiness. Soldiers reunited with families on the 5 o'clock news, olymic medal ceremonies, and adoption "gotcha day" videos are just a few of my weeknesses.

Wait a second here. You haven't seen American Beauty? I'm lending you my copy.
