Today was a beautiful day. I ate a great breakfast, picked up my clothes from the laudromat, bought flowers, then met with some friends. Last night I saw that movie “Final Destination” and it creeped the hell out of me. If it is true that death has a design and a plan for everyone then wouldn’t exposing that idea to millions of movie goers make Death change its plan? At first I thought this film was supposed to be a teeny-bopper type of horror flick on the level of “Scream” or “I Know What you Did Last Summer” but I was disturbingly surprised when I found myself edgy and stressed as I sat there, practically alone in that theater. Scary. Anyway…maybe that feeling is coming from my paranoia lately. I’ve been feeling like something wants me out of the picture…but that is probably my imagination. Then again, when you’ve been raised hispanic you can never be too superstitious. :) The movie is creepy. Go see it.
Does Death have a plan? If it does can we cheat it somehow? For how long? One day we’re here, one day we’re not. Does the world remember us when we’re gone? Does it matter? Where do we go? Is there an afterlife? Is it the inside of a whale? A dark, gloomy cave? Is heaven in the clouds? Do angels have wings? If they do do they fly with them? Do they walk among us? Are we really here? Why do we dream? Does Destiny exist? Can we change it?
Tomorrow I fly out to San Francsco. I probably won’t be able to update my website from California, so this page may be up for a week or so. I’ll continue writing in my journal and post the thoughts when I return. In the meantime, tell me how you feel about some of the questions listed above. I’m curious…what do you all think…You can answer one of the questions or a combination of questions.
