Homeland!! 🎉👏 Awesome show. I love Carrie. Totally agree with you, Lost left me totally lost at the end. It was a huge “WTF??”

Mystery and discovery are like drugs. They’re like a series of addictive romance novels. But will Mystery lead you to the discovery of Reality? Hope so. Mystery is like the tour guide and Reality is the destination (for most—some prefer to stay on that weird island with the Others).

As long as your tour guide isn’t a psychopath you should eventually arrive at your destination.

This last episode is a great thought experiment about the utility or wisdom of conjecture about the dark room of the unknown.

Well, I guess I’ll say it again, I loved Homeland and find Carrie to be the most relatable character on TV. She’s brilliant, caring, dedicated, crazy and hilarious without trying.

The show is pretty accurate too—as far as operations goes. I’m basing that on hearsay from friends.

I’m not sure if I would call her mysterious though. But she’s a master of the mysterious bringing it to light.

After we’ve confronted the harsh reality we feel compelled to dive into another mystery.

The true “Reality” should be enough. It should be our destination. Until we find that, we’ll just have to find inspiration and purpose in the Mystery itself.

This is every day of my life (minus the whole contract thing).
