I’ve tried to write today and don’t have it in me, I suppose, to create something worthy of you all.
Instead, I’m going to share with you a list of beloved movies that I jotted down last night. Maybe it will spark something. Maybe it won’t.
The saddest journey in the world is the one that follows a precise itinerary. Then you’re not a traveler. You’re a fucking tourist.

These movies are pretty well rooted in my childhood and I have seen all of them several times. They aren’t the only ones I could have put on the list, but it was still a nice jaunt down the memory rat hole.
Sorry about the size inconsistency. I need some image software I think. Or a better working knowledge of how to do this! haha!
I might just write a post about influential (to me) music from these movies.
