such a love
After a night filled with talent that was filled with talented guitarists, dancers, drummers, jugglers, singers, senior slide shows and MC-ers, I left the auditorium to be trampled by a minute blizzard of snow and wind outside. And it was in that second, when the shouts and cries of "Seniors Seniors!" became dimly muted, when I looked up in the swirls of snow and majesty and saw the moon illuminating such radiant light.... that I realized that I have so much to be thankful for in this mixed-up little life of mine.
When there's so much beauty in the world, sometimes I feel like I'm seeing it all at once, and it's too much, my heart fills up like a balloon that's about to burst. And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can't feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life. - American Beauty
