Just kidding, I think that I have reached not only good place with it all, but a calm place with it all. I don't feel nearly as anxious as I did a few weeks ago, especially since I have spent a lot of time one on one with Zoe talking out our feels. This is not going to effect our closeness in any way, perhaps just make us appreciate each other even more if anything. So yes, I am easy like Sunday morning and feeling much brighter.
Craig on the other hand, has just commenced his seven degrees of separation and the reality of it all has crept up and smacked him in the back of the head with a baseball bat. But that is generally the way that Craig deals with everything - it's so not happening...it's not even happening....it's not happening yet....oh fuck...oh God....it's happening? Is this really going to happen? What are these weird feelings that I am having? Please make it stop!
Lucky for him that I am so well organised that I had all of my panic attacks way ahead of schedule, so I am as cool as a cucumber and can provide excellent moral support for his daddy breakdown sessions. Go team!
But me, I'm not really worried any more, I have arrived at my place of acceptance. I am enjoying a slow weekend, a still day, a lull in my concerns, and for now, even if it's only for a short while, I am just going with the current as I float downstream, knowing that a waterfall of emotions will eventually rise up to meet me and possibly pull me over again, but not dwelling on it. I'm lifting my oars out of the water and just cruising along without too much thought of tomorrow, slow and easy....one day at a time.

A beautifully realised western-drama from first time writer and director John M. Maclean. With it's emotionally engaging plot line and non-conventional approach to the Old West, this film is destined to delight fans of Western movies and enthrall viewers that are thirsting for quality drama. Just as it's title implies, this film is a slow burner, nothing is hurried, not event the intense action scenes, allowing viewers plenty of time for contemplation along the way.
A young love-struck Scotsman named Jay travels to the American West to search for his beloved 'Rose'. He attracts the attentions of a bounty hunter named Silas who agrees to help him find his lost love, however along the way Silas discovers that Rose is wanted, and that her bounty is worth a handsome fee which greatly alters his purpose for finding her.
Michael Fassbender, Kodi Smit-McPhee and Ben Mendlesohn give some real grit and punch to the narrative with their superb deliveries, the open landscapes and cinematography have been exceptionally constructed and the speckling of off-the-wall humour added an appreciated twist to the tale, making this an overall enjoyable watch.
FINAL SAY: There's more to life than just surviving.
