Tuedays with Morrie the movie

No practise run for me this Sunday.
ACIM started early with the movie Tuesdays with Morrie. I read the book 2 years ago and recommend it to anyone who's longing to learn the meaning of life. The author Mitch Albom is one of my favourites.
Tuesdays with Morrie is true story about Mitch Albom (the author himself) who lost track of his mentor (Professor Morrie). He rediscovered Morrie in the last months of the older man's life. Knowing he was dying, Morrie invited Mitch in his study every Tuesday, just as they used to back in college. Their rekindled relationship turned into one final "class" lessons in how to live. The movie briefly shows us a chronicle of their time together, through which Mitch shares Morrie's lasting gift with the world. The book will take you through the details.

"Have you ever had a teacher like this? One who saw you as a raw but precious thing, a jewel that, with wisdom, could be polished to a proud shine? If you are lucky enough to find your way to such teachers, you will always find your way back. The last class took place once a week, in his home, by the window in his study.The class met on Tuesdays. No books were required. The subject was the meaning of life. It was taught from experience. The teaching goes on." - excerpt from the book Tuedays with Morrie.

This reminds me of my own mentor, teacher, guardian, role model and now, my friend Ms. Moey. I will share her with you another day.

Today's lesson is all about love, energy and reflection. Then someone shared with us his experience at the recent Silent Retreat which I found very interesting and decided to sign up for it.

At home, John showed me his swollen arm. He got stung by a bee yesterday while practising his cycling at Gunung Sepat. We thought he was okay because it looked okay yesterday - slight redness but no swelling. Now it looks bad. Fortunately he has no fever, so I applied Propolis serum on the wound and see what happens tomorrow.
