Clarion Call of Love

Anton Chekhov's The Seagull, available as a DVD from the Broadway Theatre Archive, heavy on symbolism and thwarted love in Bohemian rural Russia some time ago...why should we care? Because the play shows so clearly so many ways that human beings fail themselves and many ways love is leaned on, and then expires...from abuse, misuse, overuse...and not understanding the true nature of loving.

We should care because human beings still need lessons on love. Seeing The Seagull for me is a clarion call to loving just a little bit better.
