movies

Well, Becca is in town this weekend and Sweet Anna, Becca and I went to see “Becoming Jane”. I really enjoyed the way this film showed Austen to be a woman of intelligence, passion and justice. She saw what should be done and did it. I found the direction to be just excellent and the script fantastic…

This week my friend John and I have been watching “Band of Brothers”. I have found this series to be compelling in the manner that it looks at the effects of the war on a different man’s life in each episode. In episode five, the leader of the band was experiencing PTSD in the Paris subway (which looked just like the yellow line in Budapest) and this series really make me get a sense of some of the feelings that these men experienced… There is little doubt that I thought of Vukovar on more than one occasion.

back in the ‘ville

we are back… a great trip! I will post about the fun trip with Sweet Anna, awesome visits with people, driving 1200 miles, two cross country flights, redwood trees, the fighting elephant seals, the clam-cracking sea gull, the beauty of the CA coast, the millions of cacti in the cactus forest in AZ, going from sea level in La Holla, CA to 4050 ft on a desert mountain and then back to sea level in the desert in about an hour and a half in far south eastern CA on the way to Tucson, driving real fast in the desert, and AZ – where the wild, wild west is still alive and well… all that and a pic or two later. Right now, I’m just getting reorganized after being gone from the ‘ville for all but two weeks since June 8! okay, back to work!
