Hardworking like a bee

This title is a little cool. In fact, these days I was more of a drone than a hardworking and productive bee. I’m not saying it was bad, sometimes it’s even advisable to leave it softer and take care of other things.

As I said, I have a job to live on, which is why the plan for this week was to break the bundle, not the other way around, but the Easter week was sad for affiliation. Luckily he recovered. Now that I have made a small parenthesis in which I complained, we return to the slam. So, as it didn’t draw me to productivity, I relaxed reading and even saw a movie again … which I recommend to you if you haven’t seen it. Until I tell you what movie I saw, let me tell you more about how I came to see this movie again. Yes, it has something to do with money and happiness. Finally, it is a film with Oscar nominations, based on a real event and the action of the film still has many practitioners. It’s about the movie Into the Wild.

Returning to how I came to see the film again, about a month ago, a radio uncle praised both the book In the Wild and the film made after it, with the express recommendation to read the book first to better understand the film. Below, through the Ponta method, an idea about the book.

The emotional story of the death of young Chris McCandless in the Alaskan wilderness in 1992 provokes intense reactions in American society. Jon Krakauer, a contributor to Outside magazine, publishes an article on the subject, impressed by the similarity between the young man’s story and his own experiences, but also those of others before them. After careful research, Krakauer writes In the Wild, retracing McCandless’s path, following him step by step, talking to people he has met in the last two years of his life. The book reconstructs the complicated puzzle of motivation that led him to a tragic end. Krakauer draws a series of parallels between the destiny of McCandless and other young people, carried before him by the same ideals, young people disappeared without a trace, swallowed by the abyss of the wild. The author concludes that the attraction exerted by the virgin territories on the American spirit is extraordinarily strong. To the instinctive call is often added the intellectual formation, which only intensifies this impulse, as in the case of McCandless. But nature, viewed beyond the curtain of illusions woven by writers, can often be surprising and ruthless.

Okay, now that I’m done with my uncle on the radio, about 15 minutes after he presented the book, I stopped at a kiosk to buy some water, coffee and cigarettes. I often stop at that kiosk, on the grounds that one of the sellers looks like the late Gheorghe Dinica, whose fan I still am. After all, this wasn’t the kiosk, it was his son. A fat guy, a little more cocky, but a good boy, so to speak. Yes, and that, fat and handsome, was wearing an Into the Wild T-shirt. I socialized, I asked him if he saw the movie. He said no. I recommended he see him … and look, I went back to the office and saw him again.

The bottom line … sometimes it’s good to be idle
