I’m not sure why, but it always seems to happen at the movies. Usually I’m smarter than that, or just less distracted perhaps. You see, I have this habit of eating all the popcorn and drinking all the soda before the previews end, so I get into a state of balancing excesses - of salt and of sugar -, and forget all about the big picture. And outside a movie theater, I am mostly a big picture girl.
The thrill of the drama is that there is no big picture, not really. There’s only this moment, and then this moment, and then this moment. Sure they pile up to form something bigger - and they do literally compose a picture. But the drama... I’m convinced that it only exists in the now. And there is nothing more beautiful than now, because there is nothing more.
