Movies and TV seem to encourage people to live life passively. To just sit there, hours at time, watching other people experience adventures. They make those adventures seem out of reach, and they are when you are just sitting there. When you get up and move, and take action they aren’t that far out of reach at all. And all the while we are spending our money to just be idle and let life pass right by. Where our memories are centered more around film than actual experiences. The thought of letting life just fly by while I sit in my chair is actually frightening to me.
