They Know Life?

...more than we do?

I read and watched and listened to this so called method movie makers, the ones who follow the great ones, the ones who claim they know how it 'feels', then ones who wrote themselves permission to stand on the shoulders of the giant, the one who bought themselves creative rights in this new age. They claim to document life, the ones that happen behind fences, the ones that goes on in rooms, in dark alleys, in torture chambers, in governments, in my mind.
And they say they know life?
What is life?
You ask me what is life? Life is tragedy. Life is struggle, life is a cruel comedy, a dark sitcom of directionless time. Life is about getting old. Life is not for anyone to define.
And you don't want all this?
Then eliminate every word that comes after 'Life' and all you have is LIFE.
I present you Life.

Each breath is life with all of the things you mentioned to be shared and experienced. Life is the greatest gift we possess. It is "the college" for each human being.We should share our journey with each other for in doing so we are all enriched.

Life is what it is, different, for each one of us. How does one put a label, or set definitive-perimeters on it? Bollocks, I tell you, these long-lived-and-experienced movie twats.

[milady] thanks as always. :)

[keshi] it is indeed kesh, we are living in a hall of mirrors.

[solitaire] movie makers are lying to us, but we are the ones who lived every truth they are hiding.

[HE] he is one smart man and a great movie maker.

[jeevs] very true nanba, no one can feel the fire and say the same watching it.

[pauline] and we share because we live in it and because we know that we too are connected in this race, in this life, in this world, in this learning. great words Pauline.

[kg] so true bro. we have a choice of not knowing what they make, but then we have the rights to defend what is ours, the only thing ours...our life.

First Contact, Remixed

On the last Thursday of the year, about half past 10 local time, they landed in the garden of the White House. The security never knew what hit them, in no time all the men in blue and black and whatever colour they’re in were rolling on the ground laughing. Apparently the aliens hit them with laughing gas. Good, now we know they have some sense of humour and wont bomb us…hemmm…senseless. Another half an hour went past, the president was hiding under his table, the secret service nowhere in sight. Thinking of the worst, he reached for his cell phone and dialled 911 with his trembling fingers. So much for him, the aliens UFO, which funnily enough is shaped like a saucer, lighted up like a Las Vegas casino, sans neon signboard. A door opened up and from it rolled down a weird looking robot with a huge plasma screen TV for its head. Words fail to describe alien technology, literally, so I’m using earth analogy. Oh, and by the way, I am the dude, who saw it all.

when we sit admiring
the cool breeze and wandering droplets
we realize we are admiring the beauty of loneliness
from afar, of you and me
