思い出のマーニー / When Marnie Was There
This movie. Wow.
This right here is one of the things I love about Japanese animation. This movie is obviously about two female main characters who have a relationship. The part that is left unsaid is the label for the relationship. Are they lovers? friends? something in between? The beauty of not having a label or an explanation allows us all to be able to see what really needs to be seen: the connection between two people.
And I think that scares people. Being able to say, “oh they’re lesbians” or “they’re gay” or whatever, allows people to block themselves from not being totally ‘in it.’ It allows for excuses like, “this doesn’t fit for me” or “I’m not like them,” but really we are like them. We are yearning for human connection in a way that this film depicts, and it reaches out to our deepest vulnerabilities as living beings.
And that is a beautiful thing.

I saw Sara Bareilles live May of 2011. 3 years later and I am still turning to her music. This song in particular.
It’s hard to believe the changes I’ve gone through in 3 years. And there are still days when I feel small and insignificant. All I need is this song to remind me to be enough.
