Blade RunnerPosted: December 14, 2011
In Blade Runner the replicant Roy states:
“I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I’ve watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die. ”
What beauty has touched your heart?
The trees on Shaker Boulevard glitter and shine like ten thousand diamonds in brilliant sun following an ice storm in Cleveland Ohio.
The sun set over frozen Lake Erie, a fading ball of red orange fire, sparkling across the vast shrouded waves. Transfixed, you forget the icy wind as you stand upon the shore.
Wildflowers in the Big Horn Mountains, so bright and sweet and varied that each breath intoxicates you.
A trout sparkling as he rises to the fly, shining in the sun as he leaps as you and he dance, he for freedom, you for dinner.
The candlelight glistening on your skin as you came to me.
Beauty surrounds us all.
