One of my favorite channels is Biography. I’ve always enjoyed biographies because they usually reveal secrets and insights into a person’s character that help you to better understand their fates. The other night I was watching the biography of the gigantically talented but physically diminutive Judy Garland.
She was sitting on a couch with her three children (it must have been sometime in the 60’s) and she was talking about how all her life she had been a “terrible eavesdropper”, always fascinated by what was going on in the other room. The problem, she described, as her doe eyes looked directly at the camera, was that every time she looked through a keyhole there was an eye looking back at her.
