Mixed taped theme
You don’t have to think very hard to realize that our dread of both relationships and loneliness … has to do with angst about death, the recognition that I’m going to die, and die very much alone, and the rest of the world is going to go merrily on without me.

The Toronto International Film Festival (“tiff’) is on at the moment. At this booth, Life Coach Amanda Burt dispenses therapy for confused film fans (there are more than 300 films to choose from) and recommends an appropriate film to ease each patient’s particular anxiety. I wasn’t a patient, but Amanda very kindly offered me a free ticket for Saturday afternoon. Unfortunately, I already had other plans.
Every Runner Has a Reason – wonderful short film about a homeless man who found himself in running and turned his life around. What a powerful testament to the idea even more important than running the right way is running for the right reason.
Because running. Because finding yourself.
