Just had the happenstance to watch the last fifteen minutes of the movie Grease. There’s a certain elemental joy in it. Carefully constructed, of course. ONJ is beautiful; we know about her health problems coming. JT is virile; we know about his personal sadnesses in the future. And, the countless actors and actresses in the cast; we don’t know what happened to them. There’s a line in the song “We’ll always be together”. Unfortunately, that is NOT true. We only have the briefest of times for joy and lifetimes of separation. Still it’s nice to suspend belief and pretend.
