Such an interesting pair, Sigmund Freud and C.S. Lewis having a conversation about their beliefs, about God. One in strong faith and one is science. It was truly a thought provoking discussion. I thought I might find answers listening to them debate but mostly it made me more curious.
This show is, of course, a fantasy meeting between two of the 20th century's greatest minds. Freud in his last days, dealing with terminal cancer, decides he wants to visit with C.S. Lewis. Lewis believing Freud is upset with him over his recent book, but realizes once he is in Freud's London home, it is something totally different. In a brilliant, amusing, spirited battle, they debate life's most important questions....God, morality, conscience and sex.
I loved hearing and watching these two men, feeling like the past was coming to life and being played out instead of reading about them in a book. Very enjoyable!
If you could pick anyone to have your last conversation with....who would it be?
Freud's Last Session runs through March 16th.

Ever have one of these days? You want to bury your head or feel like you're just treading water? I do! These type of days seem less if I keep setting small goals for myself. The more I work on daily habits, like setting time aside to write each day, it seems I'm not feeling as overwhelmed or that I will NEVER be able to get it all done. As I love to say....slow and steady wins the race. I also have been really listening to my body/intuition and slowing down. Saying no to a lot, keeping things more simple....more quiet. It really has helped. There is always so much pressure in this world and from so many people. I have to always remind myself...it is my CHOICE. Most things we don't HAVE to be doing....it is up to us to CREATE the life we want.
I'm so thankful for this group, for being able to read other's struggles and solutions. It's inspiring and so helpful.
