The road looks straight although it winds and climbs and
weaves every which way. Perhaps it's our 'heavenly
perspective', the road's own integrity, it's elegantly
minimal yet decisive interruption of the landscape, leading
the eye from here to there, whatever oblivion lies at its
horizon, dividing east from west or left from right,
somehow unifying the topology by its incision, that
confuses the eye into perceiving it as straight when it
couldn't be more tumultuous and rigorous.
The Beach Boys tape got Norah and Nicholas up
dancing. (Quicktime with sound, 416K)
It happens all the time.
Norah: Not to me man, if I love somebody, I love him
forever, even if I hate them ,I love them, even
if I don't want to see their face again, I...
I still love them, you know, and love isn't like
just a few good nights, ha ha... If that's the kind
it was, you could buy it for fifty bucks, that's
not what it was.
Love is a river.
Norah: You think.
Norah: But if you don't believe in love, what does that
mean? You don't believe in rivers, ha ha... You
know, people say, they don't believe in love.
You believe in love?
Norah: I don't know ,what's that suppose to mean, love,
to believe in love?
I have my own definition.
Norah: Wo, I gotta hear this. Come on, let's hear it.
Love isn't an emotion. It's a quality.
Norah: It's quantity, man.
That too. Love though is definitely not an emotion. It's
not like being happy or sad, being in love.
Norah: Maybe that's where the falling comes from.
Love is a quality, the quality. The quality of all
the emotions. It invades every feeling all the time.
When you're mad at someone you love, you have to be mad
with love, in love. When you're laughing at your lover,
you have to feel that with love. It's not a seperate emotion.
It infuses every emotion. That's why so many people get
disappointed, because it's not this pure emotion. You
can't be in love, like you'll be happy. It doesn't work.
The driver is singing along to the Beach Boys doing
"Surfin' Safari" or "Fun, Fun, Fun." I don't remember.
