my own little "White Squall"

My wife and I watched White Squall last night on Netflix instant download.

(sidenote: Netflix Instant Download kicks ass.)

Use the link above if you don't know the movie... it's definitely worth a watch if you haven't ever seen it.

It has tones, some underlying, some completely obvious, that life is a journey. It mentions Homer, the lliad, The Odyssey... both in narration and in context of the boys in the movie receiving education on the classic pieces of literature.

Please understand... I am really not "educated" in these things... I spent 6 weeks in Junior College and then enlisted in The Marines because I wasn't accomplishing anything in college. I don't get or appreciate the study of psychology as a true occupation, but I do love conversation about the topic.

I don't know why I even typed that last paragraph... I guess I wanted you too know this... I think you can be way to philosophical, I think you can waste time... over-thinking why, or how and never really get to live any of it.

I think the movie last night made me in my own mind reaffirm the thinking of it truly being about the journey. It's not about the destination at all--- zero.

But... if you don't have a destination in mind... would you ever embark on a journey, would you go out and live life?

Maybe it's all about not over-thinking it... (which I am right now) and "Just Doing it" --- probably it's about finding balance of the 2???

Crap I don't know... if you haven't seen the movie... it's pretty good.
