Finding deep insight from Lemony Snicket...

Location: Boston, MA
Mood: emotional

I am not in Boston. But I watched the Lemony Snicket movie today, and that movie apparently was set in Boston, which I thought was kind of cool. Not sure if it really was filmed there, but whatever. Irrelevant.

Near the end of the movie, there was one line stated by the narrator (Jude Law):

"And what might seem to be a series of unfortunate events, may, in fact be the first steps of a journey."

This line really hit me when I heard it, because lately I have felt like there have truly been a series of unfortunate events. And right now I guess I'd really like to believe that all this amounts to something more than a random unpleasant outcome. I'd like to believe that maybe this is the first step on a journey toward something stronger, clearer, more solid.

Okay. I'm going to quit while I'm ahead.


  1. i have all the lemony snicket books if you're interested in reading them...

  2. I think when the journey starts with a series of UNfortunate events, then we appreciate the fortunate events even more.

    And your tangentiality is eloquently articulate, so *I* don't mind! And cryptic enough that I don't look like an ass....thanks
