Watch Masterpiece Classic “Any Human Heart” at 9:00 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 20 on Wisconsin Public Television. Encore Monday at 10:00 p.m.
The intriguing idea behind this series is that throughout life we become different people. Who we actually are at the end of it all is a “collection of selves”. This makes Any Human Heart extremely interesting to me because I couldn’t agree with that theory more. It’s amazing to look back on life and see the different people you have been. Every couple years you meet new friends and drift away from the old. You might change jobs, start listening to an entirely different genre of music or even move to a new place. And with every change in life, we adapt just a little and become a new person. Perhaps that’s why the elderly are considered ‘wise’, they have lived so many lives and experienced everything in all of them.
