From Movies

Message in a Bottle (1990) – Kevin Costner

“to all the ships at sea, and all the ports of call, to my family and to all friends and strangers. this is a message and a prayer. the message is that my travels taught me a great truth. i already had what everyone is searching for and few ever find. the one person in the world who i was born to love forever. a person like me. of the outer banks of the blue atlantic mystery. a person rich in simple treasures. self made, self taught. a harbour where i am forever home. and no wind, or trouble, or even a little debt can knock down this house. the prayer is that everyone in the world can know this kind of love. and be healed by it. …

… if some lives form in a perfect circle, others take shape in ways we cannot predict or always understand. loss has been a part of my journey. but it has also shown me what is precious. so has a love for which i can only be grateful ”
