The Best Film Ever!

Have you ever watched a film that was so incredibly, mind alteringly brilliant that it stayed with you for days, months or even years after it finished? Did it speak to you on a level so deep that you never thought that such a thing could be possible? Everyone has seem a film like that at one time or another in their lives – what was yours?

Song Lyric Sunday

I picked up on this over here at Lydia’s site and I really liked the concept so I thought I’d join in and wondered if you might like to as well. The idea is to come up with song lyrics which, for you, best match the theme – in this case ‘Let Go’. My choice, which may, at first glance, appear not to make one iota of sense is Seven Nation Army by The White Stripes….

Am I Dead Inside?

I just don’t seem to feel anymore, do you know what I mean? It’s not as though I don’t have feelings anymore; I can feel happy or sad or pissed off or whatever but there is nothing truly deep.

How to be a Hypocrite

5.Change your position on important subjects regularly to ensure that you are always aligned with the people who can benefit you the most
6. Emulate Donald Trump ( I was going to continue with a 7, 8 and 9 but I don’t think I really need to now)

Note to Self:

I could tell you all that stuff but, quite frankly and without wishing to offend, it would be bollocks. There’s no excuse. I am in pain because I did not take my own advice. I knew damn well that the muscles in my lower back were tight and a little inflamed but, having discovered the new challenge of running up all the stairs around here I just ignored it.

Are You Happier than a Cow?

If another cow starts eating beside her, she might lift up her head and give a slight umprph! but then she’ll move over and carry on eating somewhere else; she certainly won’t kick the other cow in the udders and demand that she sticks to her side of the field.

So Demanding!

Do you agree that it’s time that we all stepped away from our little boxes and see what the rest of humanity has to offer us? If we can move away from the things that separate us and concentrate on the things that unite us surely we will all be happier or am I just an idealist? I really hope not.
