    Thanks for posting the article about Moonlight by Bastien. Maybe we can argue that underlying universality is the threshold we all need to become engaged in a narrative but value a story because it shows us people and places we hadn’t known before.

    To give an example, for years I have avoided stories about the British upper classes, not out of dislike, but because I have already dedicated more than enough of my life reading about and viewing what is, after all, a tiny sliver of humanity. It’s a big world.

    And, that’s why I also try to avoid stories, films about Hollywood, actors and the theater. They are just too many pieces of my mental furnishings already, and there are other choices.

    I love the explosion of available content.
