Sometimes there’s so much beauty in the world…

by Joy Monger

While traveling in South America a few years ago a friend commented that I reminded her of Ricky Fitts from American Beauty.

Apparently saying things like “I am so in love with the world, I just want to spoon every single person” and “Don’t you just love how beautiful the concrete is here?” start to make people notice.

Luckily she didn’t think I was high.

I just re-watched the clip from American Beauty where Ricky films the trash bag.  It’s such a great scene…kinda creepy, but really a lovely sentiment.
