Wings of Desire

Watching Wings of Desire , actually Der Himmel uber Berlin which means Heaven over Berlin. Here's a movie review. It's about two angels who are eternal observers of mankind and two mortals, a film star, Peter Falk, and a storyteller, Homer. One of the angels desires to experience life, to taste an apple, to shout, to be mortal and human. I identify with the angel who desires mortality. I feel my etherealness, my alienness in this world. Yet, I am mortal and can experience. I have forgotten to be grateful for life itself, for simple things. I am rectifying these oversights, learning to appreciate simple things.
