What’s a “Brain Cloud”?
It’s a bubble which appears above someone’s head, letting you know their thoughts.
Like in a comic.
It’s also a movie reference.
In Joe Versus the Volcano, the titular character is told by a doctor that he has a “brain cloud”. The doctor explains that a brain cloud is a fatal disease with no symptoms. He tells Joe that he has six months to live.
Joe goes back to work. He tells off his boss and quits. On the way out he asks out the co-worker he’s had a crush on for years. He goes on to have an amazing adventure.
Joe has to believe he’s dying before he gets the courage to live.
In a way, my divorce has done the same thing for me.
I know that my life needs to change. Drastically.
And now’s the time.
What does that mean? I don’t really know.
But I’m going to find out.
