“A man had 3 boxes. Each box weighed 5 pounds. The man weighed 190. The bridge could only support 200. How did the man make it across the bridge with all his boxes? He juggles. He keeps the one box in the air the whole time. The bridge is life, the boxes hold your feelings, your love, your joy, your pain, your loss. Everyone is crossing a bridge with more weight than they can bear. So you juggle.”
This was the end of the episode Judith died. After all those years, this clip still gets me. I can remember everything i felt during watching this episode. And “God” is right. Every now and then this text comes up in my mind… and i love it!
There are so many different people. They all need a different way of relating to me. And that’s what religions are– different ways to share the same truth.
-God in Joan of Arcadia
Hahah. I really loved Joan!
You and me, we used to talk
Like a river underground,
the sewer where we used to walk.
The hole at the end empties out to the pier
Where paperboats disappear
Me, I try to send this note,
Float it like a paper boat,
But paper sinks and words are weak.
I try but I don’t speak
Join together in the silent snow
Turn our faces up to see
Not endless night,
but day A pier
And you and me, talking.
Joan of Arcadia, season 1 episode 20.
