The Diving Bell and the Butterfly

The Diving Bell and the Butterfly is an extra-ordinary story and an even extra-ordinary film. And the thing I loved about it was that the director never tried to make it melodramatic. Everything about the movie is on the spot - the performances, the cinematography, the editing, the directing. It is a pity that it did not win any Oscars even though it was nominated for four. It is a highly recommended watch.

It is amazing that a week has disappeared without a trace. It was going to be a busy week but I never knew it was going to be this busy. This coming week is the same and I guess I am better prepared for this week - sort of. The long week will be broken up by a day trip to Wellington visiting TVNZ's archives on Tuesday, which I am looking forward to.

On the health front - the calf muscle has healed but I had fever on Saturday and have had a sore throat since then. It is getting better but I am now seriously getting fed up of this niggling health problems. I can understand if I wasn't taking a proper diet or doing proper physical exercise but I am doing all that and to me it is inexplicable that I still keep having these minor irritations.

That's me for now.
Till later,

I loved "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly", but the movie I'd rather see is "My Stroke of Insight", which is the amazing bestselling book by Dr Jill Bolte Taylor. It is an incredible story and there's a happy ending. She was a 37 year old Harvard brain scientist who had a stroke in the left half of her brain. The story is about how she fully recovered, what she learned and experienced, and it teaches a lot about how to live a better life. Her TEDTalk at TED dot com is fantastic too. It's been spread online millions of times and you'll see why!
