brokeback mountain

so went to see brokeback mountain last night. what a painfully beautiful and beautifully painful story and film. my stomach is still aching from all that largely unspoken longing in that movie. all that tension.

i had decided that 2006 was going to be a year of letting go of some impossible and paralyzing longings for me. start living more instead. for starters, i was going to stop listening almost exclusively to death cab for cutie. it's been four months of dcfc for heaven's sake.

anyhow, with the movie still fresh and my stomach still aching, i figure i have one or two more days of sitting with the beautifully painful. am now listening to old edie brickell. that song just me by the sea.

a couple links:
the k bear
motvind (for swedes. i like this young woman's writing and lovely pics. and she has one cute dog.)

i think i will enjoy writing out/posting my mondo beyondo list this weekend.

i think i have an exciting card project/opportunity in the works too thanks to a certain monica. will share more soon.

Glad to hear you loved the movie --- I can't wait to see it! Hopefully they'll play it here in Ohio...! *sigh*

Oh, wow, thanks for the link. I am honored. And I feel like a celebrity! :)

Jag tycker också att jag har en himla söt hund, men jag är kanske lite partisk.

Jag har inte sett Brokeback mountain, och det enda jag känner till om den är att Linda Cardellini från ER är med i den. :) Men jag tycker om hur du beskriver den, så jag kanske borde ta och se den.
