Nite Mirror
As a kid, I was an avid reader. Mostly sci-fi/fantasy books, although after getting hooked on the TV show Kung Fu -- I'm talking about the original set in the old west, the sequel set in the modern day was a pale shadow of the original -- anyway, I started developing an interest in eastern philosophy.

Being the avid reader I was, that interest led me to read a fair amount of self-help/philosophy books and while my opinion on the value of self-help books have changed since those days, one of the books I read and enjoyed back then was The Peaceful Warrior by Dan Millman.

That was in my youth. In the current time, honestly, I've felt like a wreak, and most of those old philosophies and what I knew/learned back then went by the wayside.

Over this past weekend, I was loaned a DVD movie, The Peaceful Warrior. I was rather surprised that an independent film maker made a movie of that book I read so long ago. I'm not sure I still agree with the teaching of that peaceful warrior in which everything happens for a reason. I will say that after watching the movie and the extras in the DVD, it has got me dusting off old ideas I had that I either forgot or simply stopped believing.

I can't really afford it, but I am tempted to make an offer to buy this loaned DVD.

Ah, time for me to keep moving.
