Notes

I first saw Rudolf Abel depicted in Bridge of Spies in which he was a noteworthy side character. His calm demeanor in the face of certain death really spoke to me. The way in which he calmly handled the chaos of life made our constant preoccupation with things beyond our control seem patently absurd. Abel’s life lesson is one I reflect back on when the world seems difficult.
