I watched Gravity again (for the fourth time).
I wondered why this movie affected me and what I found so profound about it. Yes, yes, the technical intricacies are quite stellar, but it’s about much more.
The movie is about life and rebirth; the evolution of a human life. From the shot where it looks like Ryan is in utero, to the picture of Saint Christopher, who carried infant Christ over a river. There’s also a closeup of a Buddha in one frame. Why is that important?
Here: Samsara is a Buddhist term that means “continuous movement” and is commonly translated “cycle of existence.” Within Buddhism, samsara is the repetitive cycle of birth and death. We are trapped, as it were, in a “wheel of suffering.”
It’s an incredible film with all kinds of symbolism to dissect with each view. And when you think about it, life is like being in crazy situations like Gravity depicts. We’re repeatedly knocked down and think, “That’s it. I can’t handle life anymore.” However, we continue on despite knowing that at any minute, life can come and punch you in the face.
Why do we do that? It could be faith, but I believe it’s HOPE. Hope that even though our circumstance(s) may be dire, tomorrow may bring about the panacea…just as swiftly and as formidable as the punch.
UNICEF’s Tap Project essentially means that FOR EVERY MINUTE YOU DON’T USE YOUR PHONE, A DAYS WORTH OF WATER WILL BE GIVEN TO A CHILD IN NEED. The sponsor for this event is Giorgio Armani.
All you have to do is go to uniceftapproject.org ON YOUR PHONE and let the timer run and you will be helping a child in need! FRESH WATER IS VERY IMPORTANT AND YET IT IS NOT AVAILABLE TO EVERYONE. Please do this because it is quite easy to do and won’t cost you a thing!
Note: For those of you who find it hard to avoid using your phone, I suggest you run it while you sleep. :) Thank you!
When people ask why I love Britney Spears, it really boils down to this:
Her show is at Planet Hollywood in Vegas. They throw her a welcome party, have their elevators adorning her picture, she performs there nightly and SHE STILL STANDS IN LINE AT STARBUCKS (inside Planet Hollywood).
What kind of magic is that?!
Also, I am happy for her. She finally has a Starbucks in her “home.” LOL
If this is your husband, I have just endured a 2 hour train ride from Philadelphia listening to this loser and his friends brag about their multiple affairs and how their wives are too stupid to catch on. Oh, please reblog the shit out of this…
