Every now and again you find something worth watching on Netflix and this time it was a documentary. I thought it was timely to share my thoughts about this film and suggest that you make it your ‘must-see viewing’. It’s a unique relationship between a female octopus and a man.
While this eight-armed creature is ultimately the star of My Octopus Teacher, it is Foster – the narrator – whose life is radically affected, whose soul is touched and heartbroken by what unfolds. This documentary is about their mutual affection that’s beyond the bounds of science, marine zoology, or environmental awareness, it’s because there’s plenty in it that’s very deep and very profound.

Doesn’t it feel good to watch the news? Said no one ever! I don’t know about you, but I feel very drained when I watch any sort of commercial TV, I’ve actually disconnected myself from it. I prefer selected movies or documentaries, or none of the above, just being outside, watching ‘nature TV! (more…)
When I approach the pond in the garden, I count the Goldfish, there are 14 at least. They are cruising in their usual way, so it’s a bit tricky however, they are huge compared with the Guppies so I can count them, I just have to really concentrate and count them in bunches because they move so quick!
It’s been quite a while since I’ve fed them. I sprinkle the fish food flakes over the surface and watch as the fish make their way to the change in vibration on the water, they know there is something good there for them to eat.
In a personal computerwith the Windows operating system, Ctrl-Alt-Delete is the combination of keyboard keys that the computer user can press at the same time to terminate an application taskor to reboot the operating system (have it shut down and restart itself). Imagine if it was as simple as that with your mind? To be able to control a situation, to create an alternative, and then to delete what is destructive and no longer serves us. Well, Control, Alt - Delete can be instant metaphysically, the challenge is inviting the rest of the body to join in with what the mind is willing to change!
In a computer it happens instantaneously at a click of a mouse or the press of the keys; in real life when we need to ‘reboot’ or ‘reset’ our own physicality, health, and clarity, it only takes longer because the wiring between the mind and the physical (the action) can be compromised due to out of balanced chemistry, bias, beliefs or in other words ‘mid-ear banter!’ (more…)
When I was a little girl, my family and I shared our summer holidays in ‘Macrae’, a beautiful beachside suburb of the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria. The water was sparkly green-blue and sometimes grey as the mood of the sky reflected back a predictable color and pattern for most of our summer.
I would play and swim for hours on that beach, walking up to Rosebud pier and back and accumulating and intensifying every freckle that is still on my skin today. I used to dive under the water and hold my breath for as long as physically possible, and rejoice in the inhalation of new oxygen as I burst out of the water for embracing life. I shuddered at the thought of not being able to breathe, not being able to take in those deep inhales, and express those necessary exhales. (more…)
Having a healthy immune system is absolutely vital to ensure one’s quality of life. I don’t know about you but I certainly want to be around for a while and in a good quality of health, mental and physical.
