Occasionally I wandered in where I was not wanted and gave truthful answers.
Sometimes I even did it deliberately. A little disruption now can prevent disaster later.

Lost in the story


People so disconnected from reality that a movie depresses them

A week ago I would have said that some of my more radical conclusions about Pilgrims or Story People were unjustified.

Then I read this article this morning.

Audiences experience 'Avatar' blues.

Hmmm.

I really should say something nice now.

But I can't resist the snarky.

Now, if you're blue
And you don't know where to go to
Why don't you go where fashion sits
Puttin' on the Ritz
Different types who wear a daycoat
Pants with stripes and cutaway coat
Perfect fits
Puttin' on the Ritz

Dressed up like a million dollar trooper
Trying hard to look like Gary Cooper
Super-duper

Come, let's mix where Rockefellers
Walk with sticks or "umberellas"
In their mitts
Puttin' on the Ritz


Now, I of all people know that depression is a terrible thing to lose yourself in.

But Stars above and Earth below, IT'S A MOVIE!! Fiction! A fable!

If you can't see the beauty of the planet around you, you aren't looking hard enough.

Yep, even in those cityscapes that you've given up on.

Humans aren't separate from the World, we're a part of Nature too.

Stop following another's story and go start your own Journey.
