“The camera is a liar. It shows everything, it shows nothing. It reveals only what we want. Often what we see is seen only from a window; moving past then gone. One window. My window. If you’d been here, chances are you would have seen things differently.”
I can’t remember now which episode of Parts Unknown this quote is from. I have been binge watching them for hours at a time the past few weeks after Anthony’s passing. It is hard to imagine what a man who seemed so full of life and adventure must have been dealing with and going through to take his own life. As I watch these episodes, I have started to definitely feel a bigger appreciation for the differences in our world, our own country and even our own city we choose to call home.
There isn’t really a cohesive point to this post other than get out and enjoy life. The people. The places. The tastes and smells. Get your hands dirty. Get uncomfortable. Experience.
