I let my head fall back, gazed into the eternal blue sky and felt the peace and sweet blue gentleness.
At that moment, I recalled the words of the movie hero Pi Patel from ‘Life of Pi’, one of my favorite and oscar awarded movies …’Nature can put on a thrilling show. The stage is vast, the lighting is dramatic, the extras are innumerable, and the budget for special effects is absolutely unlimited. What I had before me was a spectacle of wind and water, an earthquake of the senses, that even Hollywood couldn’t orchestrate’.
‘Life of Pi’ is a story about faith and fate that leaves spectators questioning whether the meaning of life is something perceived or believed. Are you a person that prefers to believe in things that always make sense/things that can see? Or are you a person that prefers to believe in miracles/take things on faith? There are no right or wrong answers – just an opportunity for introspection.
