Just a thought

I always think of this quote from, Garden State:

"You'll see when you move out - it just sort of happens one day, and it's just gone.
And you can never get it back. It's like you get homesick for a place that doesn't exist.
I mean, it's like this rite of passage, you know.
You won't have this feeling again until you create a new idea of home for yourself,
you know, for your kids, for the family you start, it's like a cycle or something.
I miss the idea of it. Maybe that's all family really is.
A group of people who miss the same imaginary place."

I do feel homesick for a place that doesn't exist. Because, in reality, things will never be just the way I want them to be.

  1. That is not a happy thought! Why can't things just be the way you want them too?
