Yesterday I was at the movies. An advertisement for a local newspaper
("The Eagle") was shown on the screen before a movie started. The
advertisement included an eagle holding a light sabre, like in Star Wars.
The eagle drawing had an expression like how the phrase "oh yeah?" could
be used, responding to a challenge. However, the image of the light-sabre
wielding eagle did not inspire me or "sound a chord". (Now, it is true as
well that the drawing was probably NOT intended to sound a chord :)

Then I imagined seeing less detail of the eagle, and the eagle being
smaller in the picture, more visible "place", with only the eagle and its
opponent. Why did that sound a chord? It seemed to me that those sole
occupants of the vast scene became representatives for a view of life and
that the outcome of the conflict had bearing for the viewer. The eagle and
its opponent were fighting about a cause, defining the resultant state, in
a way, and my life (in imagination) was to be affected in what took place.

Have a nice day
