Men Of Arlington showing on BBC

I was honoured to score the award winning Men of Arlington documentary last year, it tells the story of a forgotten generation of young Irish men who came to Britain to seek a better life, but lost themselves along the way.

See why it won the JDIFF best documentary award on BBC Northern Ireland on Monday 24th Oct at 10.35pm.

It may also be available on the BBC Northern Ireland iPlayer, see this link for more details.

and get a free download, over at Marie's Facebook page:
There is also a stunning video for "This World", a requiem for a sister, a young life who left this planet too soon.
Bedroom Stories Part Two
Ekhart Tolle
I got into Ekhart's works just over a year ago, he's a dude who (amongst other things)
lived on park benches for a few years and found an answer to life, the universe, and everything*
It's surprisingly accessible, positive, useful, life changing stuff (imho) and largely free.
Oprahmidion is a huge supporter, so you can download the Ekhart/Oprah "New Earth" videos for free.

Free News
Worth Watching, as relevant now as it was in 1991
"Given that most countries do have enough resources to provide for their people,
why should they have to tolerate a system that forces parents to watch their children die slowly,
at the other end of the scale why should British high street banks get tax relief
of more than a billion pounds (on loans to these countries)?"
And finally....
"Let nobody pull you so low as to hate them." - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Love always,

Life is always now. Now is consciousness. And consciousness is who you are. That's the equation."

Naomi Klein

Naomi Klein delivers an outstanding commentary on mankind and Mother Earth, commerce, risk, the nature of growth, sustainability, and a lot more.... highly recommended

"Days before this talk, journalist Naomi Klein was on a boat in the Gulf of Mexico, looking at the catastrophic results of BP's risky pursuit of oil. Our societies have become addicted to extreme risk in finding new energy, new financial instruments and more ... and too often, we're left to clean up a mess afterward. Klein's question: What's the backup plan?"
