“The truth will make you odd.” ― Judy Blume

“Just being in a body, is a state of rapture. You know? Just being here is cause for celebration. It’s also a cause for grief too. But grief is also a form of joy. The rose celebrates by falling apart. Foil by foil falling to the ground. And the cloud celebrates by weeping.” (Coleman Barks, ‘I am’ directed by Tom Shadyac)

    Love this post! I watched “I AM” and this one paragraph stood out to me more then any other part. I kept replaying it so I could wright down every word. Love how it was presented as well, very powerful.

      It’s a beautiful documentary. Coleman Barks speaks brilliantly. I watch ‘I am’ every now and again, I will never get tired of it 🙂
