And I go, ‘oh, I’m getting sad, gotta get the phone and write “hi” to like 50 people’…then I said, ‘you know what, don’t. Just be sad. Just let the sadness, stand in the way of it, and let it hit you like a truck.’
And I let it come, and I just started to feel ‘oh my God,’and I pulled over and I just cried like a bitch. I cried so much. And it was beautiful. Sadness is poetic. You’re lucky to live sad moments.
And then I had happy feelings. Because when you let yourself feel sad, your body has antibodies, it has happiness that comes rushing in to meet the sadness. So I was grateful to feel sad, and then I met it with true, profound happiness. It was such a trip.
The thing is, because we don’t want that first bit of sad, we push it away with a little phone or a jack-off or the food. You never feel completely sad or completely happy, you just feel kinda satisfied with your product, and then you die. So that’s why I don’t want to get a phone for my kids.
It would be wonderful. Kinda scary at first but worth it. Just think about it; standing up in the sunroof, stopping every 50 miles for food, polaroid pictures, long nights without much sleeping, that first smell of the ocean as he hit Cali, standing on the Hollywood sign , running to the beach, watching the sun set over the ocean, falling in love with each other and our new found freedom, wearing out our shoes and the words I love you , imagine, us.
