Hello my lovelies, This week I got two treats for you, first is the book Man's Search for Meaning from psychiatrist Viktor Frankl's memoir who describe the of what life was in Nazi death camps and its lessons for spiritual survival. Based on his own experience and the stories of his patients, Frankl argues that we cannot avoid suffering but we can choose how to cope with it, find meaning in it, and move forward with renewed purpose. Man's Search for Meaning has become one of the most influential books in America; it continues to inspire us all to find significance in the very act of living. Here is the link: https://www.amazon.com/Mans-Search-Meaning-Viktor-Frankl/product-reviews/080701429X The second treat is this documentary that made me cry for the human spirit through out, just an amazing experience, and an awesome happy ending. This Oscar-nominated documentary by Lucy Walker is about the Brazilian artist and photographer Vik Muniz and his work with the "pickers", or catadores, who eke out an existence scavenging scraps from Rio's colossal city garbage dump. The title avowedly refers to TS Eliot's poem, but what Walker thinks she's showing us in her handful of dust is not fear, but life-affirming hope. Some might find the movie's take-home optimism naive and Muniz's attitude itself open to question. But this is undoubtedly a bold raid into an unknown territory – both geographic and conceptual – that the prosperous classes prefer not to think about. (This is a review from the Guardian’s Peter Bradshaw which I copy and paste because it explain far better than I ever could) and here is the link: https://www.theguardian.com/film/2011/feb/24/waste-land-review Documentary link: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1268204/?ref_=tt_urv Thank you for listening or reading.
