I have addressed in the past that I suffer anxiety and depression (something that has become more prevalent in today’s society).
After addressing the situation and thinking I had everything under control, I was hit for six back in September when a mini-relapse occurred. To make matters worse, I suffered a massive case of heat exhaustion whilst overseas. It was a tough period to get through, but compared to what others face in life, mine was miniscule.

The Best of Me is a film by Michael Hoffman based on the Nicholas Sparks best seller of the same name. It stars James Marsden as Dawson and Michelle Monaghan as Amanda. Dawson and Amanda were high school sweethearts before they parted ways and the film focuses on them reconnecting years later at which point Amanda is married with a family.
Like previous Nicholas Sparks books that have been turned into films, we see the usual template emerge. Love, angst and heartbreak.
By the time the film has ended it has all of those areas covered. I haven’t read the book, so I cannot say whether or not the film stays true to it, but if you like romantic dramas then this film will interest you!
I’m back from my hiatus.

Today the 31st Lugarno Spring Festival was held at Gannons Park. It was also the reason I couldn’t get to Sydney Theatre Company’s Leviathan at Hurstville today (well last night was due to the flu, today was due to the festival).
The Spring Festival always attracts a big crowd, due to the cars that are on display, rides, show bags, jousting yes jousting, and showjumping displays. As I was leaving, the crowd was definitely approaching the level it is known for. The sun was out, which made it a perfect day for the Festival, so I wouldn’t be surprised if it comes close to the crowd record that was made last year.
Some pictures I took at the Spring Festival can be accessed via the link below. All credit for them goes to this site.
