i watched a movie today

not that that’s anything out of the ordinary, i just couldn’t think of a title. i watched eternal sunshine of the spotless mind again today. this was the second time i’ve seen that movie. the first time i saw it was when me and amanda were just dating. i had no idea how much more that movie would mean to me some three years later. there’s some amazing stuff in that movie about what intimacy really is, especially in light of the marriage retreat we’re fresh from. it was just really nice today to see some beautiful scenes of two very screwed up people who love each other and make the choice to love each other even though they know just how screwed up they both are. i think that’s what a functioning marriage is supposed to look like. that even after years of baggage you can look at the other person and make the choice to love them.

i’m gonna watch this movie again with amanda and see what she thinks about it

  2. Hey Matt, It was great to get to meet you and Amanda in our break-out sessions. I hope that the four of us can keep in touch. It seems that our group leaders are determined to keep us in touch anyways! See you around, Jessica B
