The Soak

Get soaked

Just a little bit longer.

Today I finished watching Sonny Boy, and it quickly became one of my favorite pieces of art. The main thesis is self-evident and mundane: You can’t go back to how things were. However, the abstract and surreal storytelling in Sonny Boy carved this idea into my bones in a way I hadn’t experienced before, at least from something that wasn’t my direct experiences. The difference between understanding and grokking.

The ending left a heavy but hope-filled emotion behind. I’m sure this is related to an overall anxiety about the future and doubt about recent career choices. The end of the long trip with Her also felt like waking up from the greatest dream, and I’m worried about when or if that will become my real life.

But hey, our lives are only beginning. What lies ahead will take just a little bit longer.
