Tikkun Olam

It took me three tries to finish Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist, not because it's a boring movie, but because I was watching it prone rather than upright. I'm so glad I did finish the film because of this dialog:

(Norah) It reminds me of a part of Judaism I really like.  It's called tikkun olam.  It says the world's been broken into pieces, and it's everybody's job to find them and put them back together again. (Nick)Well, maybe we're the pieces.  Maybe we're not supposed to find the pieces, maybe we are the pieces.
 Thanks to Kevin Mitchell for teaching me to always look for the spiritual in film.
