joy

i watched "little miss sunshine" on dvd, for the first time since i'd seen it in the theater. i was amazed. it stares the suffering of the human experience right in the face and it doesn't back down. it embraces pain. and that's where joy comes from. i'm learning that.
watch it again. watch the dancing scene. it's all the more satisfying because the movie is willing to go into the darkness of what people really deal with - and not flinch.
and let's face it, it's so damn funny. it's joy.
