I actually know several people who don’t ever watch films that are subtitled….so I’m referring to foreign films etc.

This really really shocked me to my core.
Of all the films I watch, 60% of them are foreign.
Even if I’m watching an English speaking film, I will turn on the subtitles. every bit helps, when you have dyslexia.

It’s a bit like only focusing on only males. You are missing 50% of the population.

or…..only eating ‘French fries’. You are missing out on a lot of food that is delicious.
Yes. I knew someone who only ate McDonald’s French fries !!!


So yes…..I’m a big ‘foreign film’ fan. It takes me to places that I would love to travel to but cannot afford.


Colder weather

It’s almost winter here in Oz.

Officially June, July & August.

….as I’ve gotten older (52)…..I’m more effected by cold weather.

I may well have S.A.D. seasonal affective disorder, but I doubt it.

I just find cold weather very difficult to cope with.


Using a light box has been found to be beneficial to people who suffer from seasonal affective disorder.


Edward Bernays

was an Austrian-American pioneer in the field of public relations and propaganda, referred to in his obituary as “the father of public relations”.[2] Bernays was named one of the 100 most influential Americans of the 20th century by Life.[3] He was the subject of a full length biography by Larry Tye called The Father of Spin (1999) and later an award-winning 2002 documentary for the BBC by Adam Curtis called The Century of the Self.

Lesson 286

The hush of Heaven holds my heart today.

Father, how still today! How quietly do all things fall in place! This is the day that has been chosen as the time in which I come to understand the lesson that there is no need that I do anything. In You is every choice already made. In You has every conflict been resolved. In You is everything I hope to find already given me. Your peace is mine. My heart is quiet, and my mind at rest. Your Love is Heaven, and Your Love is mine.
