I LOVE a good mystery. My mind is restless until I’ve examined all the possibilities and the things that are not possible, too. When I’m reading a book or watching a movie, sometimes I try to make myself follow the story without too much conscious examination of the details and just let the subtle breadcrumbs drop along the way in my subconscious. It’s always such an intense rush when my mind suddenly zooms at light speed back down the trail that’s been left and all the answers come together in a lightening bolt flash of complete understanding and insight. I love that moment! The best moments, although they don’t happen often, are those times I’m SO distracted by the storyteller’s intentional misdirection that I never “see it coming” at all. That’s always been the thing that has brought me the MOST delight. Until now.
Sherlock Holmes said: “When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.”
I might have insight now if I had paid attention to the clues you dropped along the way in real life. Elementary, my dear girl.
I miss you. So much
