In The Spotlight
There is no doubt in my mind that the Coen brothers actually know God, though some may think me irreverent to say so! I don’t mean that they “believe” in God, as all religious persuasions mean by the “belief” word. No I mean the actual industrial strength “know God” based on a numinous experience of the ineffable, just like Dr. Carl G. Jung.
The phone rang. That made twenty-two calls from my mother-in-law Virginia that afternoon. I knew because my phone counts how many times a particular number dials my house on a given day. My house phone is the only phone number Virginia remembers. No matter who she wants to call, she dials what was once her only child’s number. It doesn’t matter that he died in 2008.
What? She loves me? I met Virginia in 1967. She has never told me she loves me. Not once. After hesitating, I say, “I love you, too,” even though I’m not sure I do. She has exposed her heart to me as she never has before. I’ll figure out how I feel later.
Looking at this week’s performance surrounding the Iowa Caucuses [conducted February 1, 2016], I shudder at the immaturity of most of the candidates on the Republican side of the equation. I cannot even imagine how Donald Trump and Ted Cruz would handle a crisis of the complexity of the Cuban Missile Crisis.
