The title is from the song Spanish Caravan by The Doors.
I started my day perfectly. I woke up at 7:00 in the morning, no alarm set to go off. I got my 8 hours of sleep. I made me a royal egg breakfast. I fueled myself with a whole pot of coffee, all by myself!
I self-studied about the German philosopher Immanuel Kant. I then decided to prepare myself a delicious Asian meal consisting of noodles and broccoli beaf! My day was going so well. I even shared a video of myself on YouTube. I also shared what I learned about Kant with my follower on Twitter.
After my meal, I painted the painting above. I struggled working on it. Again, it’s because I lack patience. I am in a good mood so far. When all of a sudden I decided to watch a documentary about the people who committed suicide jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge!
The 2006 film is available on YouTube under the title The Bridge. The family and friends of those who jumped recite the narrative. The real footage of those who jumped are shown over and over throughout the movie. Every time someone jumps, my heart sank inside my ribcage. The feeling I was left with after the movie ended was of disgust. I felt I was so close to seeing my dinner coming out in reverse!
It’s a shocker how oblivious we are to the state of mind of those who are close to us. It’s a scary thought that I wouldn’t know about what goes on inside my friends’ brains or my family’s heads! The unspeakable thoughts that they can hide so well. The cry of help is not a crystal clear one! It’s so subtle and most of the time we miss it. They all missed in the movie! I can’t comprehend the reason that would let anyone act selfishly and decide to take their lives. They leave their loved one filled with anger! I know that what I would feel if, God forbid, this happens to me!
Lesson of today, don’t ruin your beautiful resting lazy day with a documentary so surreal, it leaves you depressed!
