I'm reading/listening toLouisa May Alcott's 1868 book 'Little Women' after watching the1994 movie version of the book directed by Gillian May Armstrong and thought how ironic it was that Louisa passed away two days after her father on March the 6th, 1888 and that her famous literary family had the surname March.
I wanted to learn more about Louisa May Alcott's life and searched for podcasts which focused on her life and writing, and I found this one below which mentioned Louisa being given blue pills to treat her pneumonia which contained mercury?!
I've been following Brian for quite a while, not that I've listened to every podcast he has done, but key in "Grief 2 Growth" in my blog search bar and you'll see the posts I have written about his podcast show.
While I'm not into "Jesus" as much as he is, I am into "God" just as much as he is, I think.
I love the work Brian is doing and only can imagine if I lost a son before I passed ... but don't want to.
Of course,"God" deals the cards out in life, and you have no option but to play your hand out or fold.
You have no idea how you would play that hand until the cards fall in front of you at life's table.
I think I would fold and upturn the table in a fit of rage, but who knows until and if that time comes ... and I hope I'm never put to the test this time round.
Maybe a second viewing would make me change my tune?
After all I hated Kubrick's 'The Shining' and 'A Clockwork Orange'when I first saw them on the cinema screen on the same day when I was 16 years old and had snuck into the cinema with my older brother's birth certificate to prove that I was 18 ... which probably served me right:-)
I wouldn't say that I like those movies now, just that I appreciate them more now and can see what Kubrick was trying to do by making those movies.
