Times seems to fly by, no matter how much you seize the moment. It feels like sometimes you are running just to keep up and if that’s the case then how are we ever supposed to get ahead? We can’t even get to a point we feel we can breathe so how can we keep moving ahead or attempt to get ahead? Life is just a passing event and we are just here.
An all star cast including Christian Bale, Casey Affleck, Sam Shepard, Woody Harrelson, Zoe Saldana, Willem Dafoe, and Forest Whitaker tackle the new movie Out of the Furnace. During the Oscar season, it’s the kind of movie that one might think, with such a cast, that may turn heads, but from what I saw I have my doubts. It’s a movie that seems to matter of fact it’s way to a docile ending.
You think you have it all figured out and you know where you are going to end up? Well all I would say is think again. We all have best laid plans and an idea of where we want to be and when we want to be there, but fact of the matter most if the time it’s out of our control. What can we do? Is there anything we can do to control our own lives and destiny?
The bright blue feathers,
Create an alluring appeal,
To all those who pass by,
To admire their beauty.
If I could write a song,
That only you could hear,
I’d never write another word,
Until I held your heart near.
Sometimes it all feels like everything is an uphill battle. Your dreams and goals seem so close yet are still out of reach and say to day you strive yet still fall short. So what is the point? Is this all just meaningless words on a screen that I could write over and recreate then have them ignored?
At a time when we are supposed to be drawing close to our friends and family, we don’t want to think about losing anyone. Today I was reminded of how precious life is and that we must hold on to the ones we love and love them.
