Howl: I feel terrible, like there’s a weight on my chest.
Young Sophie: A heart’s a heavy burden.
Truer words have never been spoken. This particular gem comes from Howl’s Moving Castle, a 2004 Japanese animated fantasy film scripted and directed by Hayao Miyazaki. The film is based on the novel of the same name by English writer Diana Wynne Jones. It is a visually stunning film, and quite a sweet love story
I needed the sappy sweet love story, and the reminder that a heart is a heavy burden, but when you find someone who is willing to share that burden with you, then you should accept it, and do the same for them in return.
Because I let three jobs, a full class load, homework, and a penchant for afternoon naps, I will not reach my goal of 200 posts by my birthday. I can tell you though that I am working on a fun filled photo journey through the last 26 (almost 27) years of birthdays for the big day, and I am hoping that I will have some time for the next couple of days to get some of the thoughts out of my brain and into the world.
