When I was in college, I was obssssssessed (that’s putting it lightly) with the X-Files. We would have a viewing party in my dorm room every week to watch it, all crammed on an extra long twin bed and squinting to see the episode on my 13-inch TV/VCR combo.
And we enjoyed every second of it.
I loved everything there was to love about Scully—from her science-based skepticism to her willingness to keep an open mind. And, of course, the amazing chemistry between her and Mulder.[bctt tweet=”Every living thing is connected in some way. It’s up to us to find and nurture that connection.”]
When I went to work in London immediately following grad school, I happened upon tickets to a show featuring Gillian Anderson at the half-priced ticket booth. I seriously almost passed out from excitement when I realized that I would be able to see her in person in a really small theater.
The play—What The Night Is For—was beyond anything I could have hoped for. Gillian Anderson was flawless, with her performance really shining a light on pharmacology and mental health. Two topics that were very near and dear to my heart at the time.
All of this to say, today’s quote is particularly meaningful to me.
And I love that my connection to Gillian Anderson still rings true after all these years.
