      Thank you for watching Barry Comer. I’m glad it provided some calm that needed to be.

      Whilst I was filming this yesterday, I did also loose myself in the process. The film was about 6 mintues long!

  1. I work with the elderly. There’s a lady that knits. She does it so fast and carries on a conversation without missing a beat and she barely glances at what she’s doing. This reminded me of her, the lost arts.

      Beautiful. What is her name?

      They are a wise bunch the elderly & the under 5’s.

      • I’ve been there almost 3 years and I only know a few names. When I get to know them they pass away so I keep my distance a little. I think it’s Von.

      It was beautiful to watch. All the men in the shed, talking, mending nets. It almost felt indigenous in a way.

      I applauded my grandpa on his chosen shirt, also.

  2. I am concerned that I seem to miss most of your posts…I follow your blog and sometime see A World in my Reader thing come up yet plainly not always!

      Most of my posts don’t make the reader. I’m unsure whether this is unfortunate or just something other.

      In this magazine I’m currently reading, there was an article about Stoic philosophers. I’d never heard the term before.

      ‘Epictetus writes that some things are up to us, and others are not, and he urges us to divide our lives into those things that we can control and those we can’t.’

      Seems logical & in regards to WordPress politics, entirely fitting?

      • Profound point! The gentle lunacy of Marissa’s verse reaches me each and every time yet I’m not a hunter, nor would I ever want a gun (re your previous comment on another subject) plus I am PC illiterate yet surely if I click follow your stuff should appear! I must say I adore the way philosophers use the word ‘thing’. Brilliant that is! Having said that I lost the plot with philosophers post Plato’s entirely illogical ‘Cave’

      • Jessie Martinovic – Author

        Thing, no-thing, something of that. Yes, it’s all wonderfully perfect. I’m unsure about the Plato ‘Cave’, as I don’t know much about anything unless it comes into my direct contact. But I always did have this inkling I’d end up in one, alone, eventually.

  3. The Allegory of the Cave if you haven’t looked at it before is worth a peek in that students of philosophy are fed it from the outset yet personally I think it utter rubbish…maybe that just me!
