On Escapism: sports, awards shows and retreating momentarily from the world
New from me today at The Full Moxie
It is not the mundane we wish to escape by watching sports or going to the movies. It is the hardships. It is the stress of our jobs, the weight of the economy, the perils of war, the barrage of bad news that comes at us every day. We look to entertainment not to fill a space in our lives, but to smooth over the parts where our lives are full of bumps.
Read, enjoy, etc.
