I wrote this caption last night after watching a film called "Her." The film depicts a relationship between a man (Joaquin Phoenix) and an advanced artificial intelligence voiced by Scarlett Johansen. While the caption has nothing to do with the film itself (which was very good), it did provoke the thread of thought which prompted it.
I found myself wondering if any of us ever really let loose, and allow ourselves to venture out from our little mental fortresses. Are we ever truly ourselves, even with those we love?
I don't know anyone secure enough to allow that to happen.
