What Dreams Have Come?

I listened to a 'Spirit Sisters' podcast episode featuring
Stephen Simon talking about a book he claims he wrote with his late wife Lauren ... after she had passed?
Loving Through the Veil - What Dreams May Come producer Stephen Simon ...
Which made me think of a podcast that I wrote about listening to the other day -
The Stories We Tell Ourselves About Ourselves and Others in Our Lives?
I haven't read Stephen's (and Lauren's) new book, and probably won't, as it would just be more preaching to the choir for me anyway.
But I have read his book about spiritual movies that he wrote years ago and I enjoyed it and have written posts about Stephen on this blog before, back in time somewhere -
What I found amusing listening to Stephen was all of the life connections around him and in his life, and the lives of others that he doesn't seem to see, or ponder:-)
I didn't know that he was involved with
'Smokey and the Bandit' until I listened to this latest podcast, which just makes his life tapestry more richer I think -

Let's Talk Elvis, The Colonel ... and True Life Ghost Stories?-)

The Spiritual Experiences and After Death Research of Karina Machado
I had to laugh when Karina mentions she was shook up when she heard Elvis had died and laughed with Kirsty about the pun she had made saying that, but I was thinking how funny it was that Karina was talking about a ghost she referred to as "The Colonel" and then talks about Elvis:-P 
Elvis and The Colonel?-)
But that also made me think about the movie 'The Conjuring 2' that was based on a "true" haunting featuring the Elvis song
'Fools Rush In':-)
I wrote a post about seeing 'The Conjuring 2' in 2016 when I was heading to the Sutherland Shire to watch my footy team
The Owls Aren't There Anymore It Seems
I found it personally interesting that Karina lives in the same shire my football team is from:-)
I've written about listening to Karina's podcast in this old post, but I haven't listened for a while, so I'll have to take a look through the archives and see if there is anything that jumps out at me -
The Game of Life ... and God?

Revisiting 'Two Weeks' in the Times of Social Isolation and 14 Day Quarintines?

I noticed in my blog stats that someone had been reading/watching (maybe?) my old post from 2012 about
Johnny Abegg's film 'Two Weeks'  -
I hadn't yet been to Tasmania in 2012, but I did go down there in 2016 for a week, so watching the 23 minute director's cut version once again from a 2021 perspective made the film even more relevant, considering that 14 days/two weeks is the Covid 19 quarantine period if I were to leave my state of Queensland
(and that's if I was allowed to) to visit Tassie this year .
Not that I had visited the part of Tassie that Johnny camped in for two lonely weeks.
And as much as I like living alone in my home with all the mod cons, two weeks in the Tassie wilderness by myself in a tent would scare the crap out of me I'm sure.   
It's hard to believe that film turned 10 years old this year, but seems even more relevant in the times we are living in now.
