2. The Hours
Just watched The Hours. Supposedly the dirctor is a buddhist. I think of dukkha. The unsatisfactoriness of life. You want what you can't have, you push away what you don't like. It literally means a ill made chassie on a charriot. Things just don't go right. Who would willing concieve this as the best of all possible worlds. I read an article in the Times Metro section today about a woman who went into a mental institution to get her meds right, and was brutally raped. You don't have to look far for the dukkha. My son cries and cries. He gets his stomach full, then his stomach has gas. Then his bowels are constipated. Then he's tired. Then waking up is not easy.
