on the weekend i watched the movie "revolutionary road"
it is about a couple who wish to escape the "hopeless emptiness" of their lives. they want to move from suburban America to Paris.
it raised questions that i revisit at times
why is suburban life viewed as so much more empty and meaningless than life in the city?
what makes the difference between existence and life ?
as i sit i also wonder: most parents cannot imagine their life without their children but kids are very often represented as increasing a sense of emptiness. how does that work?
and does anyone feel like they live every moment or do they mostly exist while looking forward to the moments of life?
