I wanted E.T. to crash into my lonely existence so bad as a child.
Elliot (also a product of divorce) navigating towards an isolated and confusing reality... needed something or someone completely outside of himself to break into his world; to show him how to feel again.
Little did I know...as a child my pining for an interjection of love would be found in Christ.
I don’t consider E.T. a random sci-fi film, but for me... a precursor to the greatest of loves I’ll ever encounter
