When I read 'Stand By Me,' it was like, 'This is a look back at the same time period when I was growing up, and it was about kids, but it really felt like what it was like to have those powerful feelings of friendship at age 12.' That's what got to me.

I still have sadness and complicated feelings about my divorce. But how beneficial is it to keep hanging onto those feelings?
