on memories

"24 hours of A Christmas Story", starting at 8pm on Christmas Eve, on TNT.

Apparently one of those Christmas classics like Charlie Brown or the Grinch, I had never heard of this movie before it came on one night near Christmas when I was in Carbondale at the home of the parents of my then-partner, about eight or ten years ago. I was extremely tired, as I often was on those visits, and I remember mostly sleeping through it, with memories of it only from drifting awake for a handful of random scenes. I remember the blond kid with the glasses, and that the movie was somehow about him, and some surreal stuff about Santa Claus, and, what, a much-coveted gun? I really can't remember.

But actually, I'm kind of fond of knowing this film only from that delirious, fragmented, half-conscious memory. I don't think I ever want to see it and spoil this memory. Which is weird, because I usually dislike shrouded, incomplete, ethereal dreams.

on memories, II

I believe the last time I saw Ladyhawke was actually in a movie theater, when it came out in 1985, with Melanie.

I'm a much different person, now. Much, much different. It's interesting to reflect on that.

We have come full circle, Lord. I would like to think there is some higher meaning in this. It certainly would reflect well on you.
