So 20+ years late to the ball, I got started on Twin Peaks. I took inn the Laura Palmer arc over a few days that, incidentally, were some of the emotionally most trying of my entire life, so I guess it served a therapeutic purpose. Especially the Log Lady introductions moved me in their theme of emotions and reality. So, thanks Lynch!

Albert Rosenfield: [to Sheriff Truman] Now you listen to me. While I will admit to a certain cynicism, the fact is that I am a naysayer and hatchetman in the fight against violence. I pride myself in taking a punch and I’ll gladly take another because I choose to live my life in the company of Gandhi and King. My concerns are global. I reject absolutely revenge, aggression, and retaliation. The foundation of such a method… is love. I love you Sheriff Truman.
