TOMMY, Dave, and Brian have an epiphany
Music: "So you think '21 is gonna be a good year....."
Driving in Mustang Dave -- my '84 Mustang from high school -- it never had the fluidity or sexiness to warrant the moniker "Sally."
Dave is tooling me on the roadway.
Destination:Pathmark - garbage bags and Mop&Glo for Mom's Sunday labor.
While driving impecibly - impecibly in the mind of my 17yr old self - The Who's TOMMY winds in the tape deck
Music: "..but somehow in your smile I can break bad weather.
What about the boy he saw it all?!"
ME: I like that sound. What was that about 'seeing it all'?
*****Ohhhhhhhh. It's a STORY!********
~~~~~~~~~~~~~CLOCKWIPE: ONE HOUR~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The tape in the deck has turned
The roadway has become highway
Destination: The highway, I suppose
Music: "Do you hear or fear or do I smash the mirror?"
Me: Tommy's totally engulfed by that mirror. Breaking it would have to break the trance. If he can no longer see himself and his own guilt for what he saw - if he cannot hide from the pain - then the outside world would have to rush in!
EPIPHANY! EPIPHANY! ILLUMINATION!
That is what Mr. Jones meant by "epiphany."
Music: "Listening to you. I get the music............."
