entry arrow8:39 AM | Dreamers

I realize that my favorite characters in film or literature are my favorites, not because they're grandly heroic, but because they're ordinary, flawed people striving for beautiful balance. Like this lost girl singing of rivers in the moon...



... or this one singing of feeling the sun in a whole new world...



Their search for that dreamed-of only happiness in a world that's cruel or apathetic is for me the finest brand of heroism.
