I loved this movie when I saw it. And recently, I’ve been thinking about this scene. What followsthis story is the realization that life is a roller coaster. Sure you can make it like a merry-go-round – predictable, not scary – but what’s the point? What is gained except avoiding feelings you would rather not have.
My life lately has been a roller coaster. Screams of delight followed by terror and fear of what’s to come. All the while trusting in the faith that it WILL change. It WILL go back to delight and joy and excitement. The hope that things will turn out well – and the faith that I can handle this just like I handled something similar in the past.
A roller coaster. A perfect metaphor for life right now.
Time to just hold on and find enjoyment in the ride – while I scream.

Lately, I have been thinking about my own mortality lately. I have found that the more I think about it the more I live. Even with all the problems that I have, there is always the other option…of not having those problems. Hence knowing that I am not alive.
Life is ups and downs. At times, I just look at the ultimate alternative and everything then seems to fall into perspective.
