I liked this poster the best, even if most of us can't read it. This movie has a high recommend from your maggid. It's beautiful to look at and the content is wonderful. There's Loyalty, Love, Diversity I believe many people will find a bridge - or opportunity to look at, address and possibly heal (or begin to heal) Issues they may have been hauling around with them
Others will just "enjoy the show." The entertainment value is certainly there. (At least, in my opinion.)
I saw it in "regular vision." I haven't watched any 3D movies lately. I'm certain they are amazing. The 3D experience isn't high on my wish list.
Being able to share/tell a story like this IS on my list of wished for abilities. Until the time i can manage expertise like this We have Dreamworks to do it for us And. Golly, am I glad. They took no cheap shots. The honored all "true hearts" in the world and in their audience.
Color me happy I went I hope you get to see it, too.
Here is a picture of Crabby Appleton right before the storm - in fact, I got rained on before i got back inside. How fast she managed those blooms. I'm impressed. I remember last summer when she looked like a brown, twisted stick, sitting in the middle of a hot parking lot with no water and no shade - isn't it amazing what God can do?
I mentioned this documentary yesterday. You can visit a non-flash page about it by clicking the picture, if you want. I've read and heard plenty of stories about times when women have changed the course of events - which always inspires me. This story is from "our time" - (This Century) and the film captures the people, the actual people - history books can't do that for us, give us a real portrait of the people, times and how heroic the effort was (OR How challenging the times were.)
I didn't get out to take photos until late in the morning. (I got interested in my studies and didn't notice the time . . . hmmm.) When I first moved in there was one lone tulip guarding the entrance to the "prayer porch." Now I have "Guardians" - how cool is that? Right above these beautiful tulips there's a clematis - just beginning to green up now . . . When the tulips have finished their patrol, the clematis takes up the vigil. Soon enough I'll post those photos as well.
Look at Crabby Appleton Today!!! Isn't she splendid? Golly I'm impressed what God can do. Give me a couple more days and we'll look again.
This is the beginning of a "Wildflower Meadow." There was a ENORMOUS SYCAMORE TREE in this spot until a few weeks ago. It had not been properly tended and was a point of contention with the neighbors. Trying to make a little Peace The tree was taken down. The company that did the work was/is fabulous. Anyway, I got a box of wildflower seeds and followed the directions. It's amazing, but already there are a few (very few) slim green shoots coming from the dirt patch we will refer to as the "Wildflower Meadow."
Fun for a "city girl" to have this around to enjoy. I was going to hire a company to come help with "the garden" but, now I'm encouraged to try to do for myself. There's certainly lots of information and I certainly love to learn.
OH! One more thing. I saw a documentary called "Pray the Devil Back to Hell" it's about the women of Liberia and how they demanded PEACE for their country.
Remember me telling you about the little tree I found on sale in a parking lot? I've been singing to her all winter. Up until now she looked like a twisted stick. This morning I went to have a little conversation with her and perhaps take a "baby picture." Wow! She is taller than i am. Lately I'd noticed she was beginning to bud. Here's what she looks like at Sunrise, April Fools Day, 2010. Amazing stuff.
I call her "Crabby Appleton."
I'm certain the neighbors are thrilled by the little ditty i sing, top of my lungs, to encourage her towards becoming the best weeping "candied apple" crab apple tree is can become . . . giggle.
