What is a better way to read than sit in front of the fireplace in your pajamas? For me there's no better way. That's why yesterday I lit the fireplace , sat in the most comfortable neoclassic armchair in the house and read the "The Glass Menagerie", a memory play. A great piece of art written by Tennessee Williams and narrated by Tom, my favorite character; an inquiring mind that yearns for adventures.
Heres's my favorite quote of Tom in the play:
“Yes, movies! Look at them — All of those glamorous people — having adventures — hogging it all, gobbling the whole thing up! You know what happens? People go to the movies instead of moving! Hollywood characters are supposed to have all the adventures for everybody in America, while everybody in America sits in a dark room and watches them have them! Yes, until there's a war. That's when adventure becomes available to the masses! Everyone's dish, not only Gable's! Then the people in the dark room come out of the dark room to have some adventures themselves — Goody, goody! — It's our turn now, to go to the south Sea Island — to make a safari — to be exotic, far-off! — But I'm not patient. I don't want to wait till then. I'm tired of the movies and I am about to move!”
