Everything is connected.
That sounds like a cliché, but it is interesting how often I need to be reminded of the phrase’s importance. I may be the last person around who has finally encountered the amazing story of “Cloud Atlas." The 2004 novel, by David Mitchell, and the 2012 film, Directed by Tom Tykwer, Andy Wachowski, and Lana Wachowski (which I just viewed via Netflix), explores how the actions and consequences of individual lives, delivered in six nesting narratives, impact one another throughout the past, the present and the future. Reincarnation? Maybe. Connection? Absolutely. A fantastic story? Well, I saw it two weeks ago and am still thinking about it. So, yes.
Read it. Or rent it. But, do enjoy it.
