i picked this still because for me, it’s stronger than it appears. to someone who hasn’t seen RM, it’s a young guy looking back at someone. to me, it’s a reminder of the mundane, simple life activities we were living and common gestures we make to say goodbye or hello and never knowing if that will be the last time. i know it’s a cliche to say this but it couldn’t be more true: life is precious. this still makes me reflect on how precious because it takes me back to the common, normal lives in the film which always takes me back to not just how i felt during 9/11….but the days and weeks before, when people didn’t know it was their last time together.
