When you’re a kid, you color with reckless abandon. You color outside the lines. You color however you feel. Blue elephants, purple trees, red bears, green oceans - it’s all good. As you get older, though, everyone tells you to stay inside the lines, to color everything just like you see it. You end up painting by numbers, whether you actually paint or whether you write or sing or act or direct. I think you should create what you feel. Create outside the lines. I want to watch green oceans and red bears. I’d love to listen to purple trees. And I long to read blue elephants.
When Erik and Christine first start dating Erik doesn't really like the ocean and Christine tries and tries to get him into the water but he won't budge. Until one day when Christine is in the ocean and a strong wave comes (not really realizing it's not all that bad) he rushes into the water to save her. Now He thinks of the water as a calm and purifying experience and he gets really excited now when Christine asks if he wants to visit the beach. ~Horror movie anon
