    I have grown up in a cold

    and abusive family more extreme than this book but it still resonates deeply with me. Especially in the movie version where the sister is describing how her brother never healed from the parents marriage and affair. I can relate to being scared by my family and having different...

    Free Of Societies Restrictions

    This is such a beautiful movie.... To live life, free of societies restrictions, in solitude, in the beauty and positivity and love that nature offers to the soul.The soundtrack is equally beautiful. Eddie Vedder knows the meaning of life.
