Down here in Atlanta, got
Down here in Atlanta, got in late last night after 2 big traffic jams on I-85 on the way down.. to get a break from the first one, went to catch a movie at the Mall of Georgia: A Beautiful Mind. The movie was excellent, and thought provoking, which fits this journal’s interest, and it hit close to home for me, to realize that the mind can play games with oneself, and for both the movie character and real life John Nash, he was delusional and seeing people who weren’t really there. It triggered for me the reason I don’t like being alone, b/c what happens when I’m alone is that my mind accelerates with overwhelming thoughts at times, and so I work better in an opening setting, be it a library or local coffee shop, where there’s people around. It gives me much sympathy for the many who have mental conditions, and not to spiritualize their real struggles of the mind.
