Not As Ugly As We Think We Are

October 2, 2009

I think I’ve found my most anticipated film of the fall. I love the tone of the trailer and its Toronto International Film Festival debut has resulted in an abundance of glowing reviews. Regardless of what the critics think, I’ll see any movie with a cast including George Clooney, Jason Bateman, Danny McBride, and Zach Galifianakis:

While I agree that relationships are the heaviest components in life, I’d contend that monogamy, allegiance, and loyalty are still possible in a world seemingly filled with sharks. To date, my biggest success in life has been the ability to surround myself with other swans. I would be lost without the close relationships I’ve developed with friends and family over the years. They are the brace and support system for the other facets of life that weigh me down.

Maybe we’re not swans, but we are not as ugly as we think we are. Our fathers gave us features that we didn’t want, but our mothers claim those features made them fall in love. We are flying higher than our counterparts, and we’ve got each other. I’d say that’s enough.
