    Just sitting here thinking about the impact that the movie "Arrival" has had on me. I've been seriously ill, but seem to have cheated death again.

    I'm going to try to eat, and if I do not feel better by morning perhaps go to the Hospital ED in the morning?

    I hope that the movie will have a positive effect on my writing, should I attempt any more of that. I was impressed by the calmness of the movie, and saddened by the fact that a couple soldiers got hysterical and tried to attack those who came, in an illustration of the old 'fight or flight' trope.

    The story is as plausible as we let it be. I am so tired of the unimaginative, worn out violence filled trash that Hollywood pukes out. Perhaps will again watch "Arrival" again tonight.

    I'd also recommend a Russian, (perhaps Ukrainian ?) movie loosely called "Attraction". If one is persistent enough, you can find an english dubbed version on YouTube for a modest price. It is uncommonly good, coming from a place that I did not expect.

    Arrival is brilliant. Glad it helped you a bit during this time of illness.

    I hope you will be well, soon. It would be a shame for us to lose a mind like yours, here on RF.
    I, and I am sure many others here, appreciate your contribution to the discourse.

    Thank you. I am suitably humbled by your words. There is nothing special about me save with every distraction in life gone save God, it is a freedom and a privilege to see all of it in context with God's wishes. There have been significant and painful losses in my life and it is clear that perhaps they were God driven to guide me. Blessed be the name of God.
