C’mon C’mon C’mon

Another year has come to pass with holidays around the corner.  For most – it is a time for self-reflection and turning over a new page, welcoming the changes ahead.  I get that “Holiday feeling” every time I watch Kubrick’s “Eyes Wide Shut,” a perfect Christmas film. There is a thin line between love and hate, chaos and order, calamity and serenity, war and peace.  The nuances in the film overwhelm me with a sense of nostalgia for the past, and melancholy towards the future. I know that being in the middle is the safest place to be, and the present tense is the only right place. Some questions come up to the surface, like ‘what is it that we truly want in life, from ourselves, from others, from the world we live in with billions of other beings?’ We cannot transmit what we haven’t got, and until we do – we hopefully keep on evolving, learning and transcending ourselves. Another brilliant revelation came to me from a film I recently watched and loved “C’mon C’mon,” where the main child character is asked “ When you think about the future, how do you imagine it will be, what will stay with you, and what will you forget?” He simply answers that the future is not at all what we imagine it to be, and all we can do is just “c’mon, c’mon…c’mon.”  Sometimes all we can do is live the process, do it, be it!  So let’s love and evolve:)
