I sat on my aunt and uncle (sort of) ‘s couch and convinced their young kids that we absolutley NEEDED to watch the pokemon movie on netflicks. It was like my childhood calling to me! I never thought I would be begging and pleading to a first grader but I definetly was. (I have no shame…). After much of my “please please please Adam please!” he finally allowed the movie to play and I was offically estatic. We only got to watch the beginning before we left, but it was enough to make my night. I stayed long enough for the theme song, at which point I started singing and dancing like a freak.
“Maybe it’s more like you said before, all of us being cracked open, like, each of us starts out as a watertight vessel, and these things happen, these people leave us, or don’t love us, or don’t get us, or we don’t get them, and we lose and fail and hurt one another. And the vessel starts to crack open in places, and I mean, yeah, once the vessel cracks open, the end becomes inevitable, once it starts to rain inside the Osprey, it will never be remodeled, but there is all this time between when the cracks start to open up and when we finally fall apart, and it’s only in that time that we can see one another, because we see out of ourselves through our cracks, and into others through theirs. When did we see each other face to face? Not until you saw into my cracks, and I saw into yours. Before that, we were just looking at ideas of each other, like looking at your window shade, but never seeing inside. But once the vessel cracks, the light can get in. The light can get out.”—
