This past weekend I finally got a chance to see Christopher Nolan’s movie Inception. The extremely complex film features a thief named Dom Cobb, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, who figures out a way to tap into one’s subconscious while he or she is dreaming. If you have not seen it, I highly recommend you do and I will not spoil the storyline at all if you keep reading.
Throughout the film, Cobb carries a small brass top with him. He has it in the very beginning of the movie as well as the very end and uses it as a way to try and determine whether he is living in reality or a dream; it keeps things monitored for him at all times.
While sitting in the theater with no watch on my wrist, as I currently do not own a watch for the first time in my life and am trying to wait patiently for my new SuperOcean II to arrive, I realized that a watch is my brass top. I know I may be getting too deep with this one but anything goes after this ridiculously trippy flick!
I absolutely need to have a watch with me at all times; not having one is killing me! There is no doubt that a timepiece provides me with a comforting feeling every time I look down at it. It is my reality check and something that I must always have with me. Otherwise I cannot be sure whether I am living in reality or a dream…
