I actually enjoy this arc…
But don’t fool yourself into believing you’re letting a balloon roam freely—free of you, free from the mess you think yourself to be. It’s a connection you are severing that won’t be repaired.

“When I was eighteen, River Phoenix was far and away my hero. Think of all those early great performances — My Own Private Idaho. Stand by Me. I always wanted to meet him. One night, I was at this Halloween party, and he passed me. He was beyond pale — he looked white. Before I got a chance to say hello, he was gone, driving off to the Viper Room, where he fell over and died.That’s a lesson.“-Leonardo DiCaprio
