simplicity back

i don’t think father flynn did anything wrong.
you just want things to be resolved so you can have simplicity back

i watched “doubt” today, after letting it rot for six months in my external hard drive. i thought the story was provoking and the acting was excellent (especially viola davis as mrs miller), but in the midst of all the pulitzer prize-winning lines was the above exchange between sister james and sister aloysius.

it struck me because alot of times, i would rather have things resolved than to search for the truth. fine, that’s the answer to that question and that’s that. i don’t want to know the alternatives, the reasons, the facts, the arguments. let’s move on.

again. where along the way did i exhaust myself?
