She has blogs on her face
I rate a movie by how effectively it makes me forget about the real world. I know I have seen a good movie when work, kids and all the stresses of life melt away if for only 2 hours. Another guage is when the credits roll and you can't believe how fast the time went by.
This disconnect from reality can be compared to drinking. Ever go out with friends have a few and next thing you know the bartender is yelling last call? You were so distracted that time and resposibility dissapeared for a while.
Another disconect is focus. I have always liked this saying...'yesterday is the past - tomarrow is the future - today is the present. Ejoy your gift.' Spending too much time thinking about what did or what might happen is a form of disconnect.
These gaps of time and release from pressure almost seem to be a requirement these days. Almost anyone you talk to would say it is healthy to have these moments. I guess the question I have is what is the best way to have these moments. The followup question would be where is the line you cross when you start having too many of these moments?
With drinking it becomes obvious fairly soon. Drinking for hours every day will screw you up. I believe that lack of being in the moment is a close second.
