The accidental tourist
(1988) - William Hurt, Kathleen
This movie tells a lot about the
differences between people in the reality of the type of emotions
that they live
with and the related views of which way to exist and to what ends.
For many if not most that are told
on, there appears to be a cynical attitude that the world in in fact
cold place to be, where human emotions are mainly filled with negativity
and the idea that
people live with hate as a norm around them. And that malice
is the way of the world to them in such
attitudes as thinking that non one
wants them to be happy.
Linked to all this sort of mental
processing is the idea that such traits as generosity of spirit, spontaneity
activity, passionate desires and the ability to love with real meaning in
fact are an anathema, and
even legitimately so perhaps.
So, who has the right idea on
this? That all depends on whom you ask. Actually even those that are inane
this regard comparatively in any sense whatever realize what their loss is
in life, its simply that no one
had yet brought this debate to the fore.
So life is either lived to the
fullest, or viewed as one might when on a visit to a foreign land where nothing
seems quite as it is to you in your place of familiarity, however its a
trip that eventually has to end, as this is
always the concern given the
accumulated dissonant feelings and experiences, along the way. (See my
