Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

So, now that I haven't been working for the past week, I finally took time to try and watch some of the movies on the 20-some-odd HBO's and Cinemaxes that came with the switch to digital cable...

Have you ever seen a movie that you wished made you cry?

I mean you're actually sitting there, unconsciously holding you're eyes wide open so something will come out? With that feeling in your chest that reminds you why we speak of "affairs of the heart" even though it all happens in the head?

Because the joint just hit something dead-square-center-on the nail expressing your past experience?

Somehow it seems as though getting older should cause things to fall further from the truth as you finally see what it is,

Instead you see more and more how much of our experience is shared.
