Alan Ball, "The Most Beautiful Thing I've Ever Filmed"

It was one of those days where it's a minute away from snowing. And there's this electricity in the air, you can almost hear it, right? And this bag was just dancing with me. Like a little kid, begging me to play with it. For fifteen minutes.

That's the day I realized that there was this entire life behind things, and this incredibly benevolent force that wanted me to know that there was no reason to be afraid. Ever.

Video's a poor excuse, I know. But it helps me remember. I need to remember.

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