Jamie’s BLOG – DAY 175 :: into the wild

23 Jun

Oregon is wild. Wild things grow here. Including these blackberries that I picked yesterday.

They were sour. Not quite ripe, even the dark juicy ones. They need a little more time in the wild.

Ironically, last night, we watched Into The Wild. It’s one of the movies on our Summer Movie List. (If you are counting we’ve made it through two so far!)

As I watched, I thought the movie was so sad. It broke my heart in a way. But this morning I woke up with a new perspective. The kind of perspective that only a great movie can give.

It stays with you. The story, the characters, the deeper meaning of it all.

I couldn’t help but realize that this sad movie was quite beautiful in its own way — and not in just the rugged, majestic scenery cinematography way.

It was a coming of age, a finding your way, a life lived sort of beauty unfolding. Much like the wild blackberries that all ripen at a different rate and speed. Each one turns blossom into berry when it’s ready and no sooner.

I suppose, that, may just be the epitome of peak performance and sweetness.

And a little bit of beauty too.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie
