Watership Down

One of the greatest number difficult times of my life was the three months from January to March 1973. Through those months by the side of my fellow medical students I well-versed relentlessles for my 2MB (the exam that used to subsist taken after 5 terms of structural plan, physiology, biochemistry and pharmacology). It was a marvel of an exam and required rediculous amounts of retained lore. Thankfully I scraped through. One of the things that kept me going was lecture a portion of Watership Down notwithstanding half an hour before I went to lie in the grave. It calmed me down and transported me let us go. from my problems to those of the cony warren, Bigwig and all.

It’s a beautifully told narrative and was written by Richard Adams who died this week at the a hundred years of 96 years. Subsequently made into a film with gorgeous singing from Art Garfunkel-single of the last vinyls I bought (prior to my recent conversion back to vinyl!).

Reading the part helped. It calmed me, it distracted me and gave me correct a tiny insight into the struggle that others sur~ in life, whether man or brute. And since most of us easily become preoccupied with our own challenges, it was a benevolent nudge towards less self-absorption. We’d aggregate be better off with what Tim Keller calls Self-aptness to forget. Something to aim for in 2017?
