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.
