"Well I'm gonna paint my picture.
Paint myself in blue red and black and gray.
All of those beautiful colors are very very meaningful.
Yeah well you know gray is my favorite color.
I felt so symbolic yesterday.
If I knew [the song] Piccaso, I'd buy myself a gray guitar and play."

See the villain's larger eyes insinuating a just-off-normal perspective on how they see the world? I see signs Lucius Hunt; just not as you see dead people. I am so very happy we saw..each other, and no I will not tell you what color love is. Stop asking.

Hey, I'm just trying to figure out what the heck dana is talking about ;x
Anyway, I think the rocking chair is about retreat, but the rocking chair goes both ways. Sometimes you have to retreat for a little while, and that's not bad as long as you eventually always get up and continue on with your life.

Yes.  Dr. Crowe reminds me of a peacemaker.  Not an easy task at that.

the rocking and the rocking.  The hand that reaches out and stops.

Namaste feels like karate.  Good karate.  Reminds me of a friend I haven't seen in a long time.  Tricked me once into taking karate at like way to early.  Good friends make room for sparring.  joining the body with the soul.  something like that.  sometimes practice feels like dancing. 

uh oh, here comes Lassie. 

Thank you Lassie.


"O body swayed to music, O brightening glance,
How can we know the dancer from the dance?"

He definitely loves to play with symbolism in all his movies. There's even symbolism in his commercial.

It's one of the ways he gets people thinking about them after they've left the theater.

But,in most of the times,I prefer images to dialogue for showing emotions.That's what I meant.

Symbolism is the ONLY way to convey emotion. That's why art exists.

What about just showing the emotion without symbolism.  That can be done, and still be good art.

Why?What about dialogue,for example?It's still a way to express feelings,isn't it?
