"At our death beds, we will inevitably know that much didn't work out, that there were dreams that didn't come to pass and loves that were rejected, friendships that could never be repaired, and catastrophes and hurts we never overcame. But we will also know that there were threads of value that sustained us, that there was a higher logic we sometimes followed, that despite the agonies, our lives were not mere sound and fury; that in our own way, at select moments at least, we did properly draw benefit from, and understand, the meaning of life."

Taken from The Meaning of Life which is just one of many wonderful chapters which can be found on The Book of Life.

Pure luck late yesterday evening when I turned on the television and just happened to catch the beginning of Listen to me Marlon.

Mesmerized I was pulled in by this psychological magnet, and although I've never been a big fan of his, I discovered that this fine actor had a truly amazing and troubling life.

Hearing first hand his voice on those tapes made me feel like he was talking directly to me, offering insights and many words of wisdom.

"Stevan Riley's award-winning documentary Listen to Me Marlon uses hundreds of hours of Marlon Brando's own archival audio tapes and home movie footage, combined with excerpts from his extraordinary performances to create an exceptionally emotive and vivid portrayal of a man and actor who was by turns tremendously talented, tenacious and tormented."

The background music was also important as it blended perfectly with the ebb and the flow of the documentary.

Since then the Spotify playlist has been turning around endlessly in my mind: Max Richter, Eluvium, etc.

With weather like this, I think I'll play it safe and just stay home for a couple days. Code orange is not something to take likely, and fortunately I have enough assignments to keep me occupied for the coming period. Hopefully this awful weather will not last too long.
