"Story Lady"

Victoria & Abdul

My preference is to attend the earliest show
generally there are very few others in the theater
Today was different
Not only was the film well attended
The audience was rather diverse

The story,
based on true events,
touches on many issues of the day.

The movie is a treat for the eye
the music gives a good guide and balance for the heart
The story has insight.
uncomfortable truth
plenty of beauty
I'm always grateful to be a credit reader
so people don't see the emotional process as i prepare to face 
every day again.
(you may need tissue, or a sleeve - at least once)

this last photo is actually them
There wasn't a royal dog represented in the film
love & love,

Just what i needed
"sandbagging" a bit today
sometimes the world seems to tilt
towards a darker view

Time to call in reinforcement
Then, this movie showed up.
helped me by recognizing there is mean stuff
BUT, we can continue to stay the course
HELP always arrives

 There was Hope, Faith, Community
The credit roll was an extra delight

NOW, I get to hustle to catch up around here.

love & love,

ISLE OF DOGS | Official Trailer | FOX Searchlight . . . will we like it?

Because I miss TexWisGirl - run-a-roundranch 
Gotta share some ducks

My pup and I go for nature walks
Our favorite spots see us so often
wild creatures don't bother to run away

 my 100 lb pupster assures me she will stand steady 
while I "point & shoot" with the teeny camera

we see lots of creatures, but enjoy the adventure so much
we simply get happy and continue on our way.
Hope you are all safe, well and happy.
love & love,
PS - Dear Colorful World - I visit your beautiful blog regularly - 
have not found a way to comment - 
I'm leaving this little note full of love & appreciation for you.

Here Ya Go . . .

 put tiny camera in pocket
returned to wacky sculpture park
to share new installation with you

It's actually HUGE

One sign promises there's conservation projects going on
                                              the other asks people not to climb on art

This guy was moved to make room

Now the guy seems to be lurking

Note to Self

Put Camera in Pocket 
The pupster & I were walking in the crazy sculpture park
I only like the place when the pupster is with me
We noticed the giant man was moved
Today there's an enormous deer . . gotta remember to capture it for you.

Inspiring hero of the moment
George Whitefield
(some of us spell it Whitfield because that's how we say it.)
D'ya know about him?
He prayed one day we'd become

Do you already know this blog?

Saw last week:
The Women's Balcony (Trailer/video)

 There's a small theater that specializes in independent and foreign film.
The kind of stories I enjoy.
I try to attend early, so I'm often the only - or one of a very few -
in the theater - 
The place reminds me of San Francisco.
There was a unique film theater within walking distance
(loong walk)
from my home.

love & love,
