So over at Mystic's, there has been a lively conversation about the movie Grizzly Man. In the interest of giving an informed decision, I watched it this a.m. If you would like to join that discussion or give your opinion on Timothy Treadwell, head on over.
But during the movie, Werner Herzog, the director and narrator, makes a comment which is particularly interesting to me. I wanted to share it and find out what other people think. He says, "Here I differ from Treadwell. He seemed to ignore the fact that in nature there are predators. I believe that the common denominator of the universe is not harmony but chaos, hostility, and murder."
To me this speaks to the idea of a constant battle between "good" and "evil." It feels almost too simplistic to understand what this thing we call life is. But I welcome other people's views.
My day today has been one of rest and relaxation. This was the day I should have had on Sunday, but it's actually quite a boon to have it now. It made my week at my dialysis job blessedly short. I only have 8 days at that job before I'm off for 2 weeks. I can't tell you what a relief that is.
I had a trip related dream last night. I dreamt that I was packing and packing and it was getting closer and closer to the time I had to go. Then the next thing I knew, I was running late for my plane and I didn't have everything ready. I suppose that part of that might have been explained by the fact that I had to go to Ellis Island to get my visa for Britain (aren't dreams wacky!).
Ka asked if I would be blogging when I'm over there. I plan to as often as I get the chance.
