Parva leves capiunt animus
(Small things captivate light minds)

The accidental tourist (1988) - William Hurt, Kathleen Turner 

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
a cruel 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
of 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
in 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
