The movie shows the range of emotions he went through and the thoughts and hallucinations that were running through his mind throughout the ordeal. He handled it with humor, videotaping messages and his goodbyes to his family and friends, with extreme frustration at times (who wouldn't? ? ?) and grace and a level-headed concentration on not losing it. It really makes you think about the lengths one would go to stay alive. Could you drink your own urine? Could you cut your arm off to survive? Could you do it without bleeding out? He is a tough guy and is still out there hiking and even climbing, but apparently, he now always leaves a note as to exactly where he is heading! It was very good and I am glad we went! Just don't plan on going out for steak and Bloody Mary's afterwards!
|My Australian Violets - just because they are |
so cute and I love them, even though they are
desperately trying to take over my ENTIRE yard!
|For everyone else, these may be called violas, but growing|
up, we called them violets, so they will forever be violets to me!
They are one of my favorite flowers because they look so sweet!
I am also working on a story for this "Dinner Party" game one of my epals told me about. (Thanks, John!) I'll share a bit more of that in a future post. But, it is something that has held my interest for quite some time. I have thought about it frequently and I am very anxious to do it up right and would like to share it with you someday! I'm afraid I am going a bit overboard with it, but that is what is making it so much fun for me!
And a shot of the grape hyacinths that have popped up in the last week or two. The paperwhites have already come and gone without me documenting their existence this time around, but they'll be back!
