REAR WINDOW: DAILY ROUTINE IN LACKING OF HUMANS
rear window: daily routine in lacking of humans
nless we take account of some peculiar case, side “B” of many things is usually underrated. Dualism has ever been significant in different cultures; every element with its own opposite or specular. Come to my mind two great examples in human adventures and in collective imagination.

revolutions in the human lifetime had being passed through two pillars; ... for better or for worse. Beyond the limits appearance brings about, imagination simply stands for the willing to wonder at things usually right before our eyes, most of the time considered ordinary. These stills tell you something simply minimal on the household landscape of the home side “B”; rear window, a world further the usual sight.

“... There are two ways through life: the way of Nature and the way of Grace. You have to choose which one you'll follow. Grace doesn't try to please itself. Accepts being slighted, forgotten, disliked. Accepts insults and injuries. Nature only wants to please itself. Get others to please it too. ... To have its own way. It finds reasons to be unhappy when all the world is shining around it, when love is smiling through all things. ... No one who loves the way of Grace ever comes to a bad end. ...”
“THE TREE OF LIFE” by Terrence Malick quoting Thomas Aquinas
