Sometimes the road ahead is paved with anything but good intentions...

  • Mood: Melancholy
  • Music: My Chemical Romance

...but it's the best place to find yourself.

If you get a chance, watch “Elizabethtown”. Cameron Crowe took death and turned it into life. I’ve never seen it done quite this well. In the midst of death there is life. Remember that. Also, when things fall apart, remember if it wasn’t this, it would be something else. Remember that Martin Luther King’s death was only the beginning of his victory. Take a moment in life and dance wildly in a circle, one hand waving in the air. Live life, breathe it in. Love it.

 

Drew Baylor (Orlando Bloom) lost his job due to a fiasco involving a shoe, which causes the company to lose close to 1 billion dollars. On the same day, his father dies. Drew puts aside his plans of suicide to be the strong one in the family and take care of the funeral plans.

 

On his way to Elizabethtown, Kentucky to bring his father’s body back to Oregon, he meets an upbeat gal named Claire (Kirsten Dunst). Her positive attitude teaches Drew how to live and love even when he doesn’t feel like it.

 

Elizabethtown” will make you laugh, make you cry, but most of all make you want to live. I hope to someday go on a road trip between where I live in NC to the coast of California and back again. And I want to stop and visit history. Watch the movie and you’ll know what I mean
