The World's Fastest Indian!!

Steve and I love the movie, "The World's Fastest Indian," and I highly recommend it.  It reminded me of  "The Straight Story" which we also loved.

The movie is a true story, about a guy who navigates through the complicated world of America when he comes here from New Zealand to set a land-speed record for the Indian motorcycle.  He is a man of openness, and so, all opens to him.  He has a dream, and, as he believes, other people, believe, and so, his dream unfolds.  I found it masterful.

Jan's parents are concerned that their daughter will experience prejudice in an inter-racial marriage, and they are right.  They are experiencing it right from the get-go,  from them.  Their fears are realized.  Perhaps we can't control everything with our thoughts, but I do think they go a long way toward creating our response.

I am working with that today, even as it occurred to me that I am a little more volatile because of the Arimidex.  That is a side-effect, so I have to work triply hard to deal with my emotions right now.  I love a task, and so, I have one.  Peace and Calm, Ho!!
