I'm watching movies and television for hours these days. With decades of television deprivation-I was too tired to watch television for my entire working life-now I can indulge and catch up.
What I see in front of me is nothing like the life I lived or the life I could imagine. Movies and television are feeding us life rhythms that do not match our actual lives.
Maybe it is the nature of the medium. Whenever we are retelling a story we act like a camera lens, focusing on this or that,to embellish, to capture an essence, to reconstruct a feeling.
How ironic for our civilization that our "fiction" will remain to document our real lives.
