With results this promising, I think that I will be taking my yoga efforts well beyond the thirty day challenge realms and making it a regular part of my daily routine. I set myself the challenge of mastering meditation last year and failed dismally, but it seems that I am picking it up this year through osmosis, and I am honestly enjoying the process. Yeah, shocker much, me enjoying regular exercise - what next? Quit drinking? Ha! That is never going to happen, I quit smoking and took up yoga this year, that is more than enough of the healthy business for now I think, surely all that has extended my life for an extra 5 years or so, I don't wanna be living forever.
Seriously though, I am finding that I am way less fazed about stuff at the moment. I just don't see the point of getting all worked up over anything really, it's such a waste of time - it's just all water off a duck's back for me these days; but I suppose that it is easy to say things like that when you have just come back from a two week break, so it will be interesting to see how long this zen-like state lasts as the term progresses, but hey, I'm enjoying it for the time being.
I don't know for sure if it's the yoga and meditation that is doing this to me, or if I have just turned over a new way of being, but whatever it is, I like feeling zen, so I think that I will just keep doing what I have been doing and see where the road takes me. I just pray that I am not putting the mozz on this zen state by talking about it, you know how the human condition always seems to slap you in the face when you think you're doing okay? Well, I really don't wanna come back down from this cloud right now, I rather like it up here.

There isn't a single soul to like in this film, they are all revolting on some level. Director David Cronenberg takes us on a poignant and disturbing romp through Hollywood, where the elite and the bottom feeders claw their way through a series of unpleasant events and inter-personal collisions.
When Agatha Weiss (Mia Wasikowska) turns up in tinsel town, her presence ruffles the feathers of many established and prominent figures with disastrous results.
This is the blackest of black comedies, I didn't find anything very funny at all if I'm being completely honest. I was however riveted, revolted and mesmerized by the performances, in particular Julianne Moore's disturbing portrayal of Havana Sergrand, a narcissistic, ruthless bitch if ever there was one.
FINAL SAY: On the stairs of death I write your name, Liberty.
