On the next to last day of the year, I read for the third time, His Dark Material, by Philip Pullman, a young person's fantasy novel, that to me is a sophisticated thesis on the theology of Dust, the symbol in my mind of love energy. Pullman's trilogy adds new meaning to the Biblical phrase: "From dust we came and to dust we will return." Methinks the reference is to star dust? And over Christmas watched yet again one of my favorite Yuletide movies, The Family Man, starring Nicolas Cage. For me the movie explores the interplay between the world we find ourselves in and the reality that we imagine. I'm always struck by how the energy of the imagined flows into our lives and if we let the whole process unfold it changes us beyond what we ever thought possible. And you?
Any books or movies struck you??
