To have moved you in such a way — I am grateful. Thank you for your kind words & I’m glad I could have shared the experience with you! <3

The things you told him was the exact same things I would have wanted to tell him, I am sure he will remember your loving words!

Thank you SO much for the recommendations! I have been curious about most of those films — especially ‘Blue Is the Warmest Colour’. I will definitely check them out! :D The meeting with Shia was during a time I really needed to connect with another, who somehow understood and felt what I felt/was going through in their own way. And that was exactly what happened. It was necessary, I believe, for both of us. There is nothing more raw than watching another human being cry or genuinely smile. I couldn’t stop thinking about the experience for the rest of that day, and in all honesty, for quite sometime after that. And I have connected to so many lovely individuals & made new friends — just from this post about it, who have connected to the experience through the writing! In fact, I am meeting up with a friend (who found me by reading my post) next week for the first time. She is awesome. We are so alike and I can’t wait! But, overall, it still remains one of my favorite human interactions I’ve ever had, so far. :)

Thank you, Mr. Williams. Thank you.
