We are blessed with this wonderful gift of eyesight but can we really see?
With the “everydayness” of life, we have become desensitized with the world around us. Everyday, we get off our beds, drink our coffee, take a bath and go to work. We work and then it’s lunchtime. After lunch, we work again and then it’s time to go home. We sleep on the bus on our way home. We buy dinner at the convenience store. And then we go home and stare at the television or facebook until we fall asleep.
The next day, the cycle comes back. We have become automatons moving much more like programmed robots than living humans.
This short film entitled “Historia de un letrero” or “The Story of a Sign” never fails to inspire me during moments like these when the everydayness of life is sinking into me. I can’t even remember how I knew of it. But it has always been in my memory bank for years. I love the music. It is from the soundtrack of the movie “Il Postino” which features the life and poetry of Pablo Neruda. I love what I feel when I experience this short film.
Today is a beautiful day. Stop for awhile and really look and really see. . . . .
