“There’s Nothing Out There. It’s All Happening On The Back Of Your Eyeballs.”
The suggestion coming down from the best minds in the scientific community today is that the world is crystallized thought. What you think creates your world. There’s an old Buddhist image of two mirrors facing each other — each one reflecting and creating the other. That’s the way it is with your consciousness and your physical reality.
This is what comes to mind when I think of Norman Mailer: that boredom is a logjam in a river which needs to flow; that a good heavyweight faces death every time he steps into the ring and that Hemingway may have faced it every day; television can give you cancer, along with rancor and fear and too much courtesy. . . .
Excerpts From A New Intimate Monthly Journal Of Feminine Expression
I figure the recipe for getting depressed is: Don’t get any exercise, don’t see your friends, don’t eat a balanced diet, don’t do the things you enjoy doing most, don’t take responsibility for the odds and ends of life that need to be attended to whether you enjoy them or not; postpone them. Instead, do: spend a lot of time on the things that you enjoy least, stay indoors, and get lots of sleep.

I’m especially grateful to the Wrenn family for their warmth to me during this undertaking. They were completely honest in front of the camera. I was a stranger to them but to my amazement, they were willing to express the love they have for each other as a family without inhibition before my curious eyes.
