|An unusually bleak Australian day in my home|
I watched the movie '22 July' on Netflix the other day when the skies outside my windows and doors were grey and I wondered how I would feel living through days like these pictured below from that movie.
Not the sort of movie I would normally pick to watch, but I watched a mini-series about death and life, which featured a girl who was a survivor of the Norway shootings, and while I had heard about the shootings and bombing at the time on the news, I didn't know all that much about the details, which is why I thought I would give
'22 July' a viewing.

And I always picture Norway as the the land of summer fjord-lands like the pictures she sent back to Australia of her Norwegian walks and bike rides.
But watching that movie and seeing the harsh and really bleak and cold winters kind of puts me off the place.
Then I listened to a recent podcast about Iceland -
Conversations Podcast: Tales From Captivity
Icelandic Sagas and Synchronicity?
This all makes me think of The Beatles song 'Eleanor Rigby' off the 'Revolver' album, which seems rather apt in this early part of 2020 with the Russian Roulette odds of dying from the Covid 19 virus and social isolation.
Although I don't feel too bad about social isolating if I can go out into the back garden with a book on a sunny day:-)
And as luck would have it, look what the latest episode of
'Unlocking Us' that just dropped onto my playlist is about -
Dr. Vivek Murthy and Brené on loneliness and connection
Could Brené Brown Have Picked a Better Title for Her New Podcast Show in These Times of Covid 19 Lock-down?-)
