playing make believe

k is watching The Deer Hunter with a friend. i can hear the dialogues and everything else and am blocking out the visuals. i have already read the synopsis on wikipedia and i dont want to watch this gut wrenching tragedy. much as i hate to say it....i love to pretend that wars don't happen. that people around the world are and free from all kinds of persecution. that living an ordinary life is all about not having to fight for the right to live. that we dont have to encounter maiming, mentally, physically or otherwise. So i sit here and listen and not watch. because the visuals are far more disturbing than the audio....and i can still play make believe....
