famous dead actor and philosopher

Yes, I thought Philip Seymour Hoffman was a great actor, but I haven’t actually seen many of his films. He died of a drug overdose, a cocktail of uppers and downers, apparently accidentally, which indicates a great need for self medication. So far, nothing extraordinary, just another celebrity story. The newspaper article that I read about his demise included an embedded video conversation with philosopher Simon Critchley. Dunno why, but I bookmarked it for later viewing. Just did. Was mesmerized. They talk about films I haven’t seen. Doesn’t matter at all. They talk about happiness, Greek tragedy, love and living in the eye of death. And they manage to do that as if chatting on a long run.  It’s not an interview but a conversation. Kudos to the philosopher conversation partner. It takes two to tango.

Still figuring out the story line that would satisfy myself here. Listening to what my family and friends evoke, what the words I absorb, the images that move me, the movements that still me, point to.
