Lady Bird

i don't know how many times i've written about this film. all i want to say is this: if there are soulmates, then mo, you are one of mine. and every person that i think of when i watch this—my mother, my friends, people i have loved and lost—you mean as much to me as this film does.

i love this so selfishly and so tenderly. because to see myself in this, to know that in some form, i exist, i exist, i exist—that art like this, too, exists—i hear myself, i see myself, and i'm learning to make peace with myself. and somewhere, quietly, too, comes joy, because i am so happy with the life i've carved out to invite such light. thank you all so much. thank you thank you thank you.
