Greys Anatomy is back. And with it, the usual anticipation, the great ardour and constant tears. I know, I know, I sound completely harebrained what with my evident fondness for a sitcom with lots of blood (and sex). No, but really, it makes me feel alive. It is extremely disturbing how a sitcom can affect your life to such a degree. Or for those 42 minutes, to say the least. What can I say, I'm strange like that.
Anyway, the moment I heard this on today's episode, I knew it had to go on my blog. So, I painstakingly typed it all out (damn you stupid google, where are you when I need you most?)
"When we say things like people don't change, it drives scientists crazy. Because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy, matter, its always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It is the way people try not to change that is unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting them be what they are; the way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones; the way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change, that's upto us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenalin. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment we can be born all over again."
