The Great Gatsby – Food For Thought

Last Friday, I was so excited to see the Great Gatsby with Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan, Joel Edgerton, Elizabeth Debicki, Isla Fisher and Jason Clarke … Just looking at the trailers and all the designers like vintage Chanel pieces, Tiffany jewels, glitz and glamour for the 2013 rendition of this film I knew it would be fabulous.

The Great Gatsby is set in the 1920’s during alcohol prohibition. This story portrays the “good life” for those who prosper from illegal activities. I’m was so excited to watch the cinematography unfold and to look at all the one of a kind fashion and natural beauty of that era. I really love this book turned into a movie because the viewer gets to see the turning of the tide, the recompense of action… You also get to see how much people concern themselves in the aftermath of death… Even in the death of someone they claim to love, you can see the immediate selfishness of getting back to their life without the heartbreak or devastation you would expect. In death we see what TRUTH really is!

Some truth cannot be seen clearly without a significant or traumatic incident that shifts the very earth underneath you, the type of truth that will catapult you into the next season of your life. Death has always represented change, betterment, remembrance and hope for the future. Take it as it comes, death is a part of life’s cycle, we are ever-changing, ever evolving, ever-living once escaping from our clay housing and the question we all should ponder is where we will spend our time after this life…
