My Health Blog

I've deleted my Health Blog. I'll do most health related posting here in "A Journal" from now on.

This Blog is Not Accepting My Comments

I've just tried, twice to respond to a comment to the post Cherry Blossoms. What I tried to say was that ------I expected that I would try audio books again some day and that I had just begun to use a local public library after not having done so for years. I said that I was reading two library books at present. One is "The song of Hiawatha and Other Poems" by Longfellow. Said that I believed that I had probably called him Wordsworth. Mentioned that "Gerry" probably remembered Gitchi Gumi.
The second book looks to be one of the best works I have ever read. It's "The Muqaddimah: An Introduction to History" by Ibn Khaldun, translated by Franz Rosethal and edited and abridged by N. J. Dawood. I added that perhaps I just liked abridged and condensed books that the Hiawatha book was put out by The Reader's Digest Association.

History Is Here Now

Just watched the film "Everything is Illuminated" directed by Liev Schreiber. Worthwhile as an illumination of our condition and an interesting treatment of the material. Listed artists are Elijah Wood, Eugene Hutz, and Boris Leskin. I believe it was largely filmed in Ukraine.

Cherry Blossoms

Just enjoyed the German Film, Cherry Blossoms. It takes place in Germany and Japan. It deals with grief and reality and relationship from a novel and attractive perspective. I was ignorant of the artists: Elmar Wepper, Hannelore Elsner, Maxmillian Bruckner, and Nadja Uhl. So much English was used that the sub-titles were little needed.
