Dates with Destiny?
I chose the book on Tasmania as a motivation to go back and see some of the places I didn't get to see last time, like the town of Stanley where 'The Nut' is, and maybe even a trip over to
The Lighthouse as a Synchromystic Metaphor/Archetype in 2020?
|The 3 books "I chose" at Bribie Island;-)|
Gordo's September post at 'Rune Soup' about him visiting Stanley didn't hurt in persuading me in choosing that lonely planet book at the Bribie Island Book Exchange, either -
King Island until I had read about it in the Lonely Planet book I chose.
But there won't another road-trip to Tassie for me until the Covid dies down enough for all the Australian state borders to open up again.
The funny thing is that it was a whale movie that Chris Hemsworth had starred in that I had watched that was the inspiration for me to head down on a road-trip to Tassie in the first place, and now here he is in my local newspaper releasing Tasmanian Devils and with a headline reading, "HITTING THE FAST LANE" just days after I had chosen to return to Tassie soon by picking up the Lonely Planet book at Bribie Island.I also received this piece of junk mail that same week advertising a stuffed Tasmanian Devil:-)
Oh ... and a stuffed Sylvester, not to mention also the rabbit ... keep reading to the end of this post to get that one:-)
Looks like I had better start planning that second Tassie trip then.
As for the book on Bali that I picked up at Bribie Island, I have no real plans of traveling there any time soon, even if I could.
I only picked that book up because I had just finished reading
'Eat Pray Love' and thrown that book into one of those boxes I dropped off, along with the DVD I had watched before heading to Bribie.
I just wanted to do some armchair traveling to Bali, not physical traveling.
But then again, who knows where life could take me, right?-)I've Been to Bribie Too, But I Haven't Been to Bali?
Knowing: A Journey Beyond The Veil?

Light between the oceans is a good movie. 2 ways of looking at something, neither really right or wrong. The instigating child is named Lucy by some & Grace by others . Spoiler: At the end they just call her Lucy-GraceReplyDelete
Yeah, I knew that Wal42, as I met M.L. Stedman at a Byron Bay writers festival at a talk about lighthouses when her book had just been released, so I bought the book later and then waited for the movie to come out.ReplyDelete
I'm a lighthouse nerd like she is.
Sometimes the movie made of from the book is a disappointment, as in the case of say 'Eat Pray Love' (in my opinion anyway), but in the case of 'The Light Between Oceans' I think the movie was just as good as the book was.
Plus the two lead actors are two of my favourite actors anyway, so that was a bonus for me when it came to watching the movie:-)
