Nomi is REAL!

There I was, sitting like a small child on the floor, looking up at the television screen as I would a teacher who seemed to understand something profoundly important. The show was Sense8. Nomi Marks was listening to Lito Rodriguez at the Diego Rivera Museum; he’d just chosen the safety of a lie over the danger of his love for Hernando Fuentes — career over truth, security over honesty.

And then Nomi says this:

At a certain point I realized there’s a huge difference between what we work for and what we live for.

Sense8

Change my life? Or remind me of what I already knew?

I think that’s the purpose of art: to remind us of what, deep down, we deeply know but somehow easily forget.
