Alan Ball (May 13, 1957 -)
I have always heard your entire life flashes in front of your eyes the second before you die. First of all, that one second isn’t a second at all. It stretches on forever, like an ocean of time… I guess I could be pissed off about what happened to me, but is’s hard to stay mad when there’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel I’m seeing it all at once and it is too much. My heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst, and then I remember to relax… and stop trying to hold on to it. And then it flows through me like rain, and I can’t feel anything but gratitude… for every single moment of my stupid little life. You have no idea what I’m talking about I’m sure. But don’t worry. You will someday.
