If you were to paint this, viewers would think you were exaggerating the colors. Amazingly intense and vibrant and spectacular!
Can I put myself on a news diet? Can I look around at what is wonderful around me and just be ignorant of the horror and terror of the ‘real’ world?
But — this is real too. May I please choose this reality and not that of what we call ‘the media?’ Would that make me irresponsible? Would it make me silly? Would it make me incapable of voting? Would it make me somehow less human? Would it be selfish to ease the weight of anguish and despair? Would I be able to compensate in some other way? Would there be a way to do this without totally withdrawing from the world? Would I be able to participate in other ways?
Would you have any answers?
