about drool

Here’s a quote from the protagonist in Fredrico Fellini’s great film: 8 1/2. The character is a movie director who has built a big, expensive set but doesn’t know why. Doesn’t know how to proceed. Just doesn’t know.

“I thought my ideas were so clear. I wanted to make an honest film. No lies whatsoever. I thought I had something so simple to say. Something useful to everybody. A film that could help bury forever all those dead things we carry within ourselves. Instead, I’m the one without the courage to bury anything at all. When did I go wrong? I really have nothing to say, but I want to say it all the same.”

Welcome to drool.
