Sometimes a single sentence can have a thunderous impact. Last night, I was watching The Brave One and it was a good movie with murder and revenge and all, but then there was a scene. Toward the end of the movie, there was a single scene where Jodie Foster is speaking about her sense of loss after the murder of her lover and she says, “I miss who I was with him”. Oh my! That line hit me so hard. If you’ve ever been loved, you have known someone who made you feel like a better person, someone who appreciated you for who you are. When someone loves you that way it’s like a mirror that only sees your beauty and uniqueness. It’s not much in terms of a sentence, I miss who I was with him. It’s just a simple sentence without a single polysyllable word. Anyone could write that sentence, but it left me stunned with memories swirling.
