My husband Michael and I have been watching Deadwood, which was considered shocking when it debuted in 2004 for its extremely profane language. I assumed the language wouldn’t be shocking now but, much to my amazement, it still is.
Why is the language shocking to me? I think it’s because of the shocking anger and cruelty of several of the main characters. Somehow, despite all the anger and cruelty around us, it’s still shocking.
While I work towards acceptance and peace of mind, I’m grateful I still find some things shocking — shocked seems better than numb.
Do you see anything shocking in today’s blog post?
Thanks to all who helped me create this shocking post, including YOU.
