House: The Final Episode

You know, the thing I liked best about the final episode of House is the fact that Gregory House denies death. The abrupt change of direction from eulogies to revelation that he is alive - paralleled by Sherlock Holmes the night before - is a complete denial of death, with Louie Prima singing "Enjoy yourself, it's later than you think."

It is not an invitation to doing whatever one wants: it is an imperative to live and create, and do it now, because we are all on the "edge", especially now when the loud voices - which barely 6 years ago or so were trumpeting an end to history and a eternity of American neoconservative theology - are the same voices that trumpet disaster and dissolution now.

I feel renewed!
I always feel renewed when Coyote, the Trickster, makes the doom and gloom crowd uncomfortable!
It was a great reversal, was it not?
