Something Important, and Great.


"Yes, an awful lot of sorrow has sort of quieted down up here.

People just wild with grief have brought their relatives up to this hill. We all know how it is... and then time... and sunny days... and rainy days... 'n snow... We're all glad they're in a beautiful place and we're coming up here ourselves when our fit's over.

Now there are some things we all know, but we don't take'm out and look at'm very often. We all know that something is eternal.

And it ain't houses and it ain't names, and it ain't earth, and it ain't even the stars... everybody knows in their bones that something is eternal, and that something has to do with human beings.

All the greatest people ever lived have been telling us that for five thousand years and yet you'd be surprised how people are always losing hold of it. There's something way down deep that's eternal about every human being.

You know as well as I do that the dead don't stay interested in us living people for very long.

Gradually, gradually, they lose hold of the earth... and the ambitions they had... and the pleasures they had... and the things they suffered... and the people they loved.


They get weaned away from earth- that's the way I put it,- weaned away.

And they stay here while the earth part of 'em burns away, burns out; and all that time they slowly get indifferent to what's goin' on in Grover's Corners.


They're waitin'. They're waitin' for something that they feel is comin'.

Something important, and great.

Aren't they waitin' for the eternal part in them to come out clear?"

The new Sofia Coppola designs for Louis Vuitton + my audition monologue from Our Town by Thornton Wilder, which my high school is putting on in the fall, and for which I tried out about six hours ago.

It went well, I think... in addition to the monologue I also got to read for the crazy old lady who stands up and shouts things during the wedding scene. My dream role! But seriously, it was really fun.
I want a callback so badly! Cross your fingers for me.

P.S. New header! I wanted something a little livelier, and I think every known color of the rainbow is encapsulated in these stunning Antoinette-Fleur drawings.

journey of the featherless is wonderful! my favorite is still a tie between 'washed your car' and 'good god'. and pretty much every other one of their songs. if you ever get a chance to see them live- do it! i literally left the concert feeling lighter and more hopeful and like my eyes were a little wider.

wonderful monologue! good luck/break a leg/crazy old lady parts are my kind of parts too! i was always (happily) typecast as the weirdo/character lady. they are by far the most fun.
