For Your Own Self

The other day I was in a cafe where picked up a copy of The New York Times. I turned to the art section that featured a variety of reviews, including a film I was interested in and the premiere of new cable TV series.

I don’t read reviews. This was a moment of weakness.

But, it was too late. The die was caste. My eyes had scanned the print, and my mind had taken in the words. Again, I was being told what to expect and why the film was weak and why the star of the cable series was wooden. I had been infected by what someone else saw.
