so the last two movies i’ve watched have dealt heavily with the idea of reincarnation. i don’t believe in coincidences, so i’m trying to figure out what i think this means. i used to think it was such a weird concept, that someone could return in a different body but maintain their essence… but i guess with getting older, i realize how little the body defines the person. and it seems more true every year that there is nothing new under the sun. reincarnation makes sense to me.
i just realized that yesterday was the one year anniversary of heath ledger’s death. i guess i never really felt sorry for him, because i suspect that he just went to sleep and didn’t wake up, and it was painless, and it was an accident. what i do feel sorry about is that matilda ledger is never going to know her dad. i don’t think there are very many situations that could be more sad than that. when i was researching haircuts, i decided i really liked michelle williams’ hair, so i was looking at a lot of pictures of her to find one i could use as a reference. i came across this picture of her and heath ledger:
it’s so funny and so sad at the same time.
