December Floating In To Carry Us Out...IWSG


This month I'd like to share a movie preview with you. This film has touched my heart and makes me feel love for the best in humans. We are not a "black & white" race upon this earth. We are such a mix that I don't like to use "gray" to describe us; I prefer mixed. We are a mixed race. Full of wonder and impossible dreams, and, hate and intolerance. I like to think that over the last one hundred years we've made more gains than losses in the proverbial "two steps forward, one step back." So, I will share this clip and you can decide for yourself if you'd like to see the entire movie, which of course, I recommend. It's a super one to see during this season, whatever you practice. This story is from a book, "Wild Pork and Watercress by Barry Crump. Also, this was filmed in New Zealand and has beautiful photography. Neill is an actor that I tend to try and see anything he's in, particularly if I've never heard of it. Like this film. I'll share another "unknown" film of his in another post...

(For some reason I couldn't get the video to work on my post, so have to put the link instead. Sorry!) 

Please go and visit our super IWSG co-hosts this month!

The (optional) question for December is: 
Book reviews are for the readers. When you review a book, do you review for the reader or the author? Is it about what you liked and enjoyed about your reading experience, or do you critique the author?

For me, I leave a review about my reading experience. I try NOT to critique the author, no matter I like it or don't. There, to me, is no reason to "attack" someone who has put themselves out there to be read, to comment on someone who was brave enough to write a whole piece-start to finish. To comment on how I enjoyed or didn't, the read is all I need to put out there. I am not a Troll. I myself prefer to have someone's honest opinion on the read, not their opinion of me as a person.

I wish you all a wonderful December and beginning to the new year. I hope you all have wonderful days and evenings filled with love and being with the ones you hold dear. Blessings to us all...


  1. Thanks for the movie recommendation. It looks good. And I don't critique an author when I write a review either. I write them for readers and to support the author.

  2. Thank you for the movie recommendation. I will add it to my list.

  3. I have seen that movie! It was really good.

  4. Sam Neill is always a great actor. Merry Christmas!
