Good night


"Sometimes I wonder about my life. I lead a small life. Well, valuable, but small. And sometimes I wonder, do I do it because I like it? Or because I haven't been brave?

So much of what I see reminds me of something I read in a book, when shouldn't it be the other way around? I don't really want an answer. I just want to send this cosmic question out into the void. So, good night, dear void."
--You've Got Mail
That flower is not just some random flower. It's located in the garden in which said movie's grand conclusion took place. Or so I think.

They should really give You've Got Mail city tours. Or if you choose to do it yourself, like I did, you'll find that one of these two lovers' apartment buildings doesn't actually exist, while the other is as real as the screen in front of you.

"What will NY152 say today I wonder. I turn on my computer. I wait impatiently as it connects. I go online, and my breath catches in my chest until I hear three little words: You've got mail. I hear nothing. Not even a sound on the streets of New York, just the beating of my own heart. I have mail. From you. "

*even though* NY152 does not live at 152. such lies!

hahaha I mixed it up..for some reason, I thought hers didn't exist but I guess it was his. Thanks for reminding me.

We spent so long looking at a brick wall/alley where his apt SHOULD have been. Ah, good times.

That's one of my favorite passages in the movie (are they called passages?) Do they also play joni mitchell's "River" after that, or is it another time? I remember it was in the winter when there were Christmas trees...
