I've decided to change the header and while looking for a picture that will replace the Daisy Lowe one I thought that it would be a good idea to use a picture that relates to my blog title/url. American Beauty is one of my favorite movies and while I was choosing the title for my blog the movie's tagline "...look closer" just fits. And plus, this iconic image that I picked for my header of Mena Suvari lying in a bed of roses is one my favorite stills.
One of my favorite quotes from the movie:
"It was one of those days when it's a minute away from snowing and there's this electricity in the air, you can almost hear it. And this bag was, like, dancing with me. Like a little kid begging me to play with it. For fifteen minutes. And that's the day I knew there was this entire life behind things, and... this incredibly benevolent force, that wanted me to know there was no reason to be afraid, ever. Video's a poor excuse, I know. But it helps me remember... and I need to remember... Sometimes there's so much beauty in the world I feel like I can't take it, like my heart's going to cave in. "
