Accurate perception is important. Just in terms of mundane functions, but it’s more important when it’s a necessary detail. We have lots of necessary details in our lives. Accurate perception of those details is, you know, a big deal. I used to have this comment on one of the Stop Button posts—The Mating Season, a not easy to find Gene Tierney picture (not easy to find before streaming services, anyway)—where the commenter said it was like I was writing about the wrong movie. Like the plot description. I dismissed it because, of course I’m writing about the right movie. I watched it, I remember it, don’t I? I’m sure about the Mating Season, it’s just other stuff I’m not, which is an unpleasant feeling.
