I can’t escape from what I did and what it meant, the full extent of which I’m only now beginning to grasp.

heard about the guy who fell off a skyscraper? on his way down past each floor, he kept saying to reassure himself, “so far so good… so far so good… so far so good.” how you fall doesn’t matter; it’s how you land.

Title: Here I Dreamt I Was an Architect
Artist: The Decemberists
Album: Castaways and Cutouts
Plays: 2907

And I am nothing of a builder 
But here I dreamt I was an architect 
And I built this balustrade 
To keep you home, to keep you safe 
From the outside world 
But the angles and the corners 
Even though my work is unparalleled 
They never seemed to meet 
This structure fell about our feet 
And we were free to go 


Wadjda | 2013 | dir. Haifaa Al-Mansour

For me, the most meaningful final image of 2013 came from a perfect little poetic film that the Oscars have already ignored — the first Saudi Arabian film directed by a woman, and as first features go, basically a miracle — Wadjda.  In Saudi Arabia, where Wadjda’s mother (like all women) is prohibited to drive a car, Wadjda wants something little girls aren’t allowed to have either — a bicycle.  It won’t spoil too much to say that Wadjda bravely attains that bike by the end of the film, and after racing past the boy who one day wants to marry her, she arrives at this intersection.  There at the crossroads, all of adulthood streams past her, the men in their cars and she on her bike.  She looks left, she looks right; she smiles.  And our hearts swell with the certainty that nothing on earth will stop her.
