childhood


i watched 'the red balloon' the other night with davey and bardhi. i love that film. its so beautiful and nostalgic. i had it on vhs as a kid and would watch it again and again. i think i want to buy the sound track. and the dvd. i've noticed all the films i own are ones that i have bought thinking, my children must see this. funny. i can't remember that last time i had a balloon. they are so nice to walk with and ride bikes with. one time i had one tied to my backpack.

Ah Yes! They had that playing at the Tower Theater a few months back. Nothing like the Red Balloon to take you back...

wouldn't mind at all. i had so much fun riding around on my bike with balloons bouncing in the wind. everywhere i went i felt like people were smiling more, and some even honked and waved. i wonder if they thought it was my birthday? either way, balloons make people happy. end of story.
