To understand a person, in addition to looking at his bookcase, is to look at his refrigerator. The former is the spiritual world; the latter is the spiritual world. Because what is in the refrigerator, how much, and how, are mostly determined by the spiritual world.
Some people often can’t help but buy a bunch of fresh vegetables without thinking about when to eat them, put them rotten and then throw them away. Just like some people, they often can’t help buying books and don’t plan when to read them.
For me, having a large refrigerator that is loose and fast is also a very important happiness. The most perfect is to save only what you want to eat in three or two days. First of all, you need to know exactly what you want to eat; secondly, you need to ensure that you can eat and finish it within three or two days; the most important thing is that your appetite is relatively stable, and you want to eat green peppers, coriander, and octopus in the last second. Children will not change. None of the above is easy.
My mom just often doesn’t know what she wants to eat, she buys whatever she sees, she doesn’t have time to eat after she buys it, and when she has time, she suddenly wants to eat something else. So every time I come to inspect and open my refrigerator, I always have a physical urge to fill it up, feeling that I’m not having a good time. I always refused strictly, and finally I was empty, I really couldn’t pretend any more. My mother entertained me, in addition to a good table, there is also a sentence “I knew you were wasting space, why not buy a small refrigerator”.
Is it a waste? Don’t waste it, squeeze it when it’s small, and have a sense of space when it’s big. Just like painting, there must be a little bit of white space. The refrigerator is nothing but a giant cavity. Gap is important. Circulation is important. It is the premise of eliminating all anxiety.
In the cold winter in the old north, adults often hung the food that needed to be refrigerated directly outside the window. Nature has become a natural refrigerator. As long as the handle of the window can stand, as long as there is still a sliver of open space in the eaves, it will be drained and used up—the plastic bags that become thinner and clearer with each passing day, showing the ribs or the pointed mouth of the fish inside. .
Today, the refrigerator still retains a certain display attribute. Just like some people like to collect refrigerator magnets from all over the world, some people simply use the refrigerator as a message board, on which a newly learned recipe is magnetically attracted, and there is always an endless to-do list. It is the act of moving the bookcase to the refrigerator.
Machines work according to program, only human ideas are often unreasonable and occasionally wonderful. In 1948, the American journalist Art Buchwald went to Paris to visit Hemingway, and a friend of his colleagues seriously asked, “If you want to be a writer, what do you need to do?” Hemingway’s answer was: “First, you have to defrost the refrigerator. .” It’s really a good job, calming, healing. If you can’t write it, don’t write it hard, if you can’t read it, put it down, and live your life loosely and quickly.
A 27-year-old director has a big problem: Bruce is the protagonist of his films, but Bruce’s maintenance costs are too high, even by Hollywood standards. Bruce is actually a mechanical shark. But the shark couldn’t do one thing it had to do – swim properly.
On the first day of filming, the mechanical shark sank to the bottom; within a week, its electric motor failed; even if the filming of the day was successfully completed, the crew had to drain and wipe the water in Bruce’s body. Clean and repaint it to get it ready for the next shoot, something even a movie star rarely gets.
Then, to this demanding and underperforming “actor,” the director did what all directors want to do – “fired” the shark.
Faced with this major constraint, the young director asked himself, “How would he have dealt with this situation as Hitchcock?” Insurmountable obstacles, turning a puzzle into a blockbuster opportunity.
At the opening of the movie, Chrissy decides to take a moonbath. While she was swimming, she was suddenly dragged into the water and dragged to and fro in the water. She was panting and screaming for help. The focus of the camera is on Chrissy, there are no bad guys around, and the audience can only imagine what the monster looks like. It wasn’t until the third act that the audience could clearly see the shark. The shark scene was cut, but there was a constant sense of anxiety in the audience, which was heightened by the film’s terrifying theme music.
The film was Jaws, directed by a young Steven Spielberg. Even early in his career, Spielberg knew one thing many of us didn’t want to admit: what we can’t see can be scarier than what we see.
We tend to focus on the facts in front of us while ignoring other facts that may be hidden behind our blind spots. Watch out for that lurking “shark”.
