During the day I spend my time thinking on the greatest systems, politics and religion, this and the other world so to speak. But when it comes the evening, I like to relax in front of TV, not with realities or talk shows, so false in their wanting to be real, but with a TV series or a movie, so much more true by their being fiction.
I often fail to find any I like in the major channels, so I turn to the lesser ones… where I usually find an old Hollywood movie.
And this does it.
There was a magic in old Hollywood, which would deserve not to be just enjoyed, but also understood in what makes it so enjoyable.
Without the usual superciliousness of intellectuals.
For a couple of days in a raw, I run into a musical with Fred Astaire, and when I watch him dancing, with Ginger Rogers or his other partners, I know what it is.
Interesting word grace: it unites this world and the other.
Grace means a special kind of beauty, that communicates a sense of lightness and freedom; therefore grace is also the name for God's action in us.
It is the only experience to which I can appeal with people who declare themselves atheist. It's a pity that they most often refuse to recognize it. So when they make films (or write novels), they make them heavy and depressing. While the movies I am talking about are elating.
I don't need to add more for now.
