A little perspective
My roommate returned from the holidays with his laserdisc player, which is a good thing, because predicated on him doing that, I bought the laserdisc edition of Babylon 5: Objects at Rest/Sleeping in Light–the final two episodes of the series.
Only after actually hitting ‘play’ on “Sleeping in Light” did it occur to me that the themes of death and farewells might not be what I needed right now, given recent events.
As usual, JMS proved me wrong.
Sheridan slipped off alone and without farewells so that his friends’ last memory of him would be a happy one.
My last memory of Grandma is of her having a grand time at Christmas. Not at all a bad way to be remembered.
Perspective gained. Thanks, Joe. I actually do feel a little better now.
Meanwhile, that Half Price Books has most of the other B5 two episode laserdiscs at five bucks a pop. I think I can spring for one for myself once a paycheck. :)
