As Seen On TV

…moving before the sun…


Even though it is on TV, I prefer my evening news filled with thought rather than read with passion. The news read with passion rather than thought is empty. An old Dragnet line comes to mind, “Just the facts Ma’am.”

My love stories I prefer delivered with passion rather than thought. There is a fine madness in the biochemical reaction that people call love. Thought rarely has anything to do with it.

Documentaries should have both, thought and passion. As in school, you know that somebody is trying to teach you something. With TV you can change the channel if you have made the wrong choice.

When I am not watching the news, love stories, or documentaries, I am writing my own stories. For those I have to do my own research. The voices narrating are tested every step of the way, and sometimes they lie.
