Movies this weekend

Never Was


’nuff said.


Valentine’s Day


Absolutely cute movie. I  loved how all of the stories came together.
Loved how some of the romances worked, and some did not. The cast was spectacular.
Only suggestion I have for the writer’s would have been to focus on Julia Robert’s character further.
Worth watching.


The Road


Long, slow movie about post apocalyptic survival.
It left too many open endings, left too many questions unanswered,
and just was slow getting to the point. This movie could have been a
phenomenal movie. But compared to “Book of Eli” or “Legion”, this movie failed.
The idea was good, but the delivery was poor.


Dear John

Sad, romantic sappy movie with a shitty ending. I mean, did they end up together?
Did they reunited as friends after all these years?

This is the song that never ends…

Without music life would be a mistake.  ~Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

Music, oh how I love it. No matter what mood I am in, I can always find some song, some genre, some beautiful melody married to words that strike deep within the heart. I love music. I wish I was encouraged more during childhood to pursue my violin even further. I have always been drawn to instruments and poems. There is something magical about the two entwined together.

I always think about the soundtrack to my life. What song is appropriate for which scenario. I am at a loss trying to figure out these quizzes; there are so many great songs out there. If you catch me at any given moment, I will be humming a song to myself, singing, dancing, etc. We are really a blessed culture to be privy to music.

What song is running through your head?

For me, Maybe by Ingrid Michaelson.

Today, I am thankful for music, artists who create the sounds that fill my day,
and the feelings it fills me with.


My Life

Turning in early

it does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble
or hard work. it means to be in those things, and still be calm in
your heart.

I love days where things just fall into place. I love days where the house is calm, the dogs are calm, and I can hear the rain outside. I love being able to take in as much as life can give, and turn in early to dream about more.

Today, I am thankful for peace, calm and meditations.

This little light of mine….

This has been the most reviewed and read blog entry of mine.
I just want to thank those that stumble on it, read it, and more.
Feel free to comment, let me know you’ve been here.


“And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.” ~ Marianne Williamson

This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine.
This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine.
This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine;

Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine!
~written by unknown (gospel song)

My Life

Mourning Sunshine

All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another. ~ Anatole France

Self Acceptance is an agreement with yourself to appreciate, validate and support who you are right now, even those parts you’d like to change.Look at yourself in the mirror.  Take a moment to love and accept the person you see looking back at you. – www.innerspace.org.uk

Going through change has me pondering life and what is to come. We leave behind us what we want to purge from our lives, and open doors in front of us hoping for better. Our lives, and the process of change, brings about a sense of mourning. The goal is not to get trapped in a cycle where we revert back into what we tried so hard to let go.

I have found that I am a person who hangs on, rather tightly. I think I am afraid of change… that ominous unknown. I fear that I am afraid. I know what I need to change, I have recognized the negativity within me, but the real “act” of change has me bewildered. When I started this project mid January, I only thought about what I am thankful for just prior to my writing it out. Now, I find myself thinking about it all day long. Now, I find myself waiting for reasons to be thankful. It’s almost like a scavenger hunt in positivity.

I have been told that this wasn’t going to be an easy project, and I can agree. I have been told that there will be days when I can only find mundane to be thankful for, but to push forward none the less. Today, definitely is not one of those days. I have been in deep thought, deep conversation and feeling very comfortable with who I am at this moment; tomorrow however, the story line may change.

Today, I am thankful for simple moments of self acceptance.
