This was a depressingly wonderful movie.
I can’t get that first few minutes out of my head. I feel like the same thing is happening to me. So many things are getting in the way of my life’s dreams. Am I waiting too long ? Am I postponing my dreams too long? Will it be too late by the time I get to experiencing those dreams in real life?
Tonight, I conceded that perhaps, “Departures” would have to be the extent of those many travels I desperately want to go on. Then, I said words that I never, ever thought I would say, “Just being realistic.”
