Blessed are those whose strength is in you, who have set their hearts on pilgrimage . . . They go from strength to strength, till each appears before God in Zion.

TV Corner3

[Sorry for taking so long to post this... I got this idea back in March while watching Turner Classic Movies :> ]

The concept of time often gets a bad rap, like when you're running late, etc. But I think sometimes time can be our friend.

Random example. From my point of view, time was very kind to the musical West Side Story (I believe the '60s film version was adapted from the cutting-edge 1950s Broadway musical). All throughout the movie, there are all these macho guys dancing & twirling around all over the place. Sort of like a gangsta ballet or something. Which makes sense if you remember you're watching what was originally on Broadway nearly 50 years ago.

But I don't think any filmmaker would be able to get away with something like that in 2005. Too gay.

See? They did a good thing when they made that movie back in the SIXTIES. The time was just right for them. But if they had waited until now, it would have been splashed all over the tabloids, or all the televangelists would have been rebuking it, or... something like that.
