Out of control

Well, life continues to rattle and roll through me and my brain, shaking my soul to its core and leaving me gasping for air.
And that's just today.
I was watching "Chinatown" this evening on DISH HD and realized what a masterpiece that film is! It's so beautifully layered with intrigue and character stylings, and magnificent cinematography transports one deeply into the tale.
I also purchased another episode of "The Shield" because it has run its course and the final episodes promise to be classic TV-noir. Vic Mackey is such a despicable character but one still cheers for his redemption, or at least his survival, despite it being an unlikely conclusion. But I haven't seen the final episode yet. I'm teasing my brain with a little delayed gratification and viewing every other episode of the season. So far, so good.
Obama won! Wow, I'm psyched and happy by that fact. I don't know if Obama will be a good (or great) president. I only know that we the people have taken a leap of faith and elected a lightning bolt from the blue who happens to be black.
And I believe Barack Obama has a strong character that's made for the office. We're much more likely to see a brighter America as a result of his election than of any other candidate, far as I'm concerned.
But we shall see, won't we.
Now I pray that he's properly protected from racists and Ku Klux Klan types who'll surely be gunning for him.
The man holds a vision for this nation will elevate us all if it's given nurture and space to breathe.
At least, that's what I believe.
