'This IS a story of boy meets girl ...

... but you should know upfront: this is not a love story'.

Sometimes, stories don't make any sense at all while you're living in them. You acquire a glimmer of understanding of the "moral of the story" only when it has ended. But what if you don't believe in endings? Perhaps the epiphany does not signal a summation, but a beginning; an opportunity to start over with your new-found wisdom.

I don't believe in endings; but I do believe Frank Costello (The Departed) when he says, 'A man makes his own way. No one gives it to you. You have to take it.'

Let's see who blinks first.
