Ever have a moment of pure epiphany? A moment where, suddenly and without warning, you’ve thunk a thought that has never been thinked before?
(Yes, I’ve had Dr. Seuss on my mind recently. Just let that go for a moment.)
I had one of those moments today.
It’s all to do with a movie, one that came out about fifteen years ago, one that I’ve watched maybe a dozen times over the years, though I’m actually a bit indifferent to it.
I had a moment’s realization, in thinking about the movie for work-related reasons, and suddenly I knew. I understood.
I’ve had an insight into this movie and what it says that I don’t think anyone has ever had before.
I’ll have to research the literature. Maybe some critic somewhere has said “This is a movie about…” and he’s on the same thing I’m about.
But I don’t think so.
Even though it’s so obvious.
I have to ponder this one. I have to ponder this one hard.
Once I have my own thinking straight, then I can share it.
