I read or heard or was told a while back something that struck me. Essentially it’s that we see ourselves in shades of gray that we fail to recognize in others. We understand better than anyone else (even if not fully) the myriad of thoughts and feelings and fleeting ideas and history that has gone into making us who we are. Not having had this same depth of experience within their head, we lack the ability to understand others as deeply and consequently misconstrue some of their sentiments.
All of that is my way of jumping to the halfway point in this week’s podcast on “Ordinary People,” which Paramount has released on Blu-ray as a part of their “Paramount Presents” line. You’re going to have to listen to the entire podcast to hear how I get there and understand where I’m going from, but the trip is worth it. Plus, it’s what, six-and-a-half minutes? Spare the time.
