Transfigured

i’ve been thinking a lot about transfiguration today. After reading the Rolling Stone interview with Bob Dylan and how he was transfigured from another Bob Zimmerman who died in a motorcycle crash a few years before Dylan’s crash and they just happened to share the same name.

Then tonight I saw the amazing incredible Vertigo at the Film Center which had a similar story line as Dylan’s transfiguration account. A living soul possessed/haunted by a deceased soul. And I wondered if Dylan was just being a trickster with the interviewer and simply revamping the plot of Vertigo. But you can still believe in it. I do.

After the movie, I waited in the rain for the 147 bus. People have such huge umbrellas these days. Have you noticed? I wonder why that is. And then for the 2nd time in a row, while standing up to begin my descent off the bus as it was braking to a halt, I lost my balance and almost fell into this poor woman’s lap. This happened the last time time I took the 147 bus home on a Friday night. I think there’s some connection there with Vertigo, transfiguration and the 147 bus I am determined to figure out.

About The Lost Pedestrian

In my wanderings throughout the moments/days/years, I try in earnest to find the mystical within the mundane and the mundane within the mystical, oftentimes confusing one from the other. I have wandered and roamed through many a city, many a town, in a state of wonder and bewilderment, without necessarily going anywhere. I am easily lost, but eventually found. (I am guessing you have just found me). My sincere hope is that you will find Something in this warehouse of thought, memory and false memory, words, numbers, tangents, murmurs, echoes (lots and lots of echoes), voices, dreams, and other paraphernalia.
