Wise words from a good man
"I just think there's such beauty in life, in living, that oftentimes it's amazing to me just how badly we treat each other. We have this wonderful opportunity to be alive, and yet people insist on just treating each other with complete disregard -- not just the atrocities of the world but just the littlest gesture. You see the way people treat other people and you think, 'Did you just do that? Did you just say that? What are you thinking?' That's something I think about a lot, really. I watch my little goddaughter and I think, life is so precious, so beautiful. There's so much possibility and potential in it. It's all such a gift. So why can't we just enjoy it?"

Such wise words ... so beautifully expressed.
and now I'm crying...can't help it. Why can't we all be that way? I hope he knows what he does for others...just by living.
When I read this for the first time the other day, I was so touched. Now that I read it again with this perfect pic I can't help fall in love with him all over again. He's just incredible.
He's wise beyond his years...just so right about the way everything is going. When i was in Toronto to watch Revolutions...i saw all the homeless people and just went wow! This is so sad...i also though maybe while growing up this effected Keanu...seeing all these poor people on the streets :( Also while walking around i came across a street name named Spidena....i was wondering if maybe that's why he chose the name "Chuck Spidena"?? Does anyone know?
FYI. E! True Hollywood story is doing Keanu this weekend. Not sure how you feel about these shows. Personally I think they focus too much on the negatives for ratings, but *shrug*. Figured I'd throw it out there in case any of you were interested.
Thanks Mikey. I'm not a watcher of E! (or any cable-based network, being poor white trash that I am), and the little bit of promo I have heard about it looks like it might be pretty trashy.
I'll get Roi to tape it for me, on the off-chance there is something worthwhile.
He has such a beautiful soul, and it is a damn shame that trash like "True Hollywood Story" has decided to weigh in on Keanu. Anyone who has seen just one THS knows what they will do to him.
HOWEVER, having said that, I do plan to watch it to see which "B" celebs they have dredged up to offer "insights" into his life. Then, forever after that, I will boycott all of them.
In honor of Keanu, I will not economically support anyone who has such little disregard or compassion for others.
i needed that.
That was pretty much my take on it, krixy and Melissa, but I thought I'd just mention it on the off chance anyone was interested.
Besides, there's no law that says you ladies can't just watch it with the sound turned off. It'd probably be fairly enjoyable for you then. :)
Another FYI (and sorry krixy if all of this is in violation of your rules...I'm thinking this is a grey area), this is probably the best music review I've read in a long time, for those of you who are as entranced with the music of the trilogy as I am.
Hmm, it doesn't show up very well, but the "this" in "this is probably the best music review" is a link.
Mikey2! You are so cool! I read a bit of your blog (a little while ago I must admit, because I'm too busy these days) and you are fun to read too! Hope you find Trinity. :)
did anyone else think of Nelson when you read this quote? that scene where the "big guy" makes the waitress cry, and Nelson quietly tells him where to get off? life is short; make it count.
That he can express himself in this manner reminds me again of what a beautiful soul he truly is, I love him. He is so real.
Wow...just thinking yesterday after seeing Revolutions again, what a great man and fine craftsman..and now this! I'm getting beyond swoonage these days... Mikey2, I am a film score fanatic and crazy fan of this score, thanks for the link.
I love this man. I think I fall in love with him all over again every day, and it's things like that quote that make it happen.
What a beautiful soul.
Mikey2, the FilmTrack music review is off the chain!
What a noble mind! I'm so touched. Keanu just added more beauty to our life and world.
