"I remember once, were were sitting on my front steps, watching ants."

The Sacred is the name of a program Joe Frank produced as part of the series Somewhere Out There. It was originally broadcast on February 25, 1996.


Watching ants and thinking about their sense of purpose and individualism. Falling for a teddy bear in a store and being afraid of going mad. Sleep monologue: who needs sleep, sleep is a delusional state, there's no reason for sleep, insomnia as a blessing and entering into a state of alert meditation. Discussion in a room with two people in wheelchairs: river rafting, injuries v/s illnesses, slow motion chronic suicide. Joe challenged god to show himself. Asking a woman about her favorite things, sandals, seasons, etc. The sacred cannot be proven. Tragedies of blues and jazz musicians and sadness about America. Joe's mother is upbeat after a stroke, he cares for her in the hospital. Running and communing with trees on a golf course during his mother's illness. People viewed from an airplane.
