I know that the missed days might be confusing everyone...so I apologize. But I am trying to keep up with the words for the month. So, as i am sitting here waiting for someone, I began to think about movies. They are so different than what I grew up with. I question the necessity of what is done in movies. With all the violence that goes on in the world. Is it really necessary to have all the visuals that we have today? That is todays word...VISUAL. I understand from way back when, that VISUAL aides are very helpful for many in learning. I use to teach through VISUAL aides to my daughter. That was a much easier way for her to grasp something. I know for many VISUAL is a great tool. But really...do we need a Visual to see things that we can really imagine behind closed doors. Come on people....we knew Rob and Laura from Dick Van Dyke had little Richie and they slept in separate beds with their pajamas on. We understand when someone gets shot, that there will be blood..does it need to be a tankful? Does anyone else think that when someone is in the shower and you can hear the water running that we aren't smart enough to know they are showering? Seems to me that in a world where they say the generation is soooooo much more advanced than us older generations, that they would be able to grasp the ideas? Do they need that type of VISUALS??? With all the killing and bombings going on in the world....let's give more VISUALS on better ways to accomplish these tasks!! When I want to VISUALIZE, I close my eyes and paint a picture in my mind. I think lovely, beautiful things, not destruction. Maybe some stories would be helpful. Sit down around the dinner table with whoever is there and share a story. Let their minds VISUALIZE what the characters look like, what the area r house might look like. What is going on in the moment. Way back when...during the radio days, that is how we all managed to VISUALIZE the story we were hearing. When anyone tells a story it is the same thing. It is high time that we begin to revert back to some of the good old days. I listen to hundreds and hundreds of radio shows while i paint, while i work, or when I am driving. I have shared it with my grandchildren. I have shared it with friends. Those were the days!
Quote for the day;
dialogue should simply be a sound among other sounds, just something that comes out of the mouths of people whose eyes tell the story in visual terms.
