there was just a trailer for garden state and it made me sad. i don’t know why. maybe it’s the song, which might be the one that makes shelby cry. or maybe it’s the movie. i was thinking about it today – i think it is meant to make people like me identify with it. people who don’t have a place yet – i mean not just a physical place, but also a job-place and a relationship-place and a self-place. lately i think a lot about how much i want a place, and how far away i am from it. it used not to bother me, but people around me are starting to find their places, and it is a little disorienting. i wonder if i will ever have a place. i’m not sure.
(song: “one of these things first,” nick drake. the movie’s soundtrack is also quite good.)
