how do i fit?
just watched the brilliant film "everything is illuminated" based on the novel by young jewish author, Jonathan Safran Foer. the film raises some great questions regarding the importance of knowing your story and how you fit into your greater family story- about our need for a sense of belonging or connectedness to history and how an understanding of the past impacts the way we live today. it comes wrapped as an awkward comedy framed within the very tragic intersection of four people, a village, a culture and a dog named "sammy davis jr. jr."
