"I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I've watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those ... moments will be lost in time, like tears...in rain."
It took me a long time to really "get" Blade Runner. The first couple of times I saw it I found it slow and a wee bit pompous - all those long, lingering shots of the city, that sound track by Vangelis...
But at some time along the way I realised that there was a certain visual poetry going on - and when I saw this prompt I immediately thought of the scene where Roy goes in search of his creator and, in the streets of a futuristic china town, finds the man who made his eyes.
One of the things that I love about cycling is that it gives you the time to stop and really enjoy the scenery - to take it in for one moment. Most of our lives are spent whizzing from place to place, urgently running around on whatever mission we may be on.
Take the time. Enjoy that moment.
