I’ll take seconds

My mind’s eye

I have been on vacation in Central  Kentucky this week.

It’s in my rear view mirror now, but the memories are crystal clear.

And coming from an egg, that means a lot.

Thanks for dropping by!

Scare tactics

I saw the movie Whiplash last night, and found it extremely compelling.

Are you planning to see it? Here are a few things you should know.

Whiplash-5547.cr2

 

  1. It’s not about jazz.  They play music, sure…but the selected songs — even the title track — are simply vehicles for the story.  The film could have just as easily taken place in the world of sports or the culinary arts.
  2. It is about abuse. The relationship between a music student and his no-holds-barred instructor — portrayed with gut-wrenching intensity by Miles Teller and J.K. Simmons — is difficult to watch. Teller is attacked emotionally and physically at every level, and like a hostage in a kidnapping incident, has a twisted love/hate relationship with his captor that boggles the mind.
  3. It’s hard to watch. In the theater where I saw the film, there were several horror movie trailers that preceded the feature presentation.  I found that odd until I saw the film.  There are definite similarities.

 

On the move

Since I graduated from college, I have lived in four cities.

I like moving. I like change.

I have spent on average seven years in each city before I got ‘the itch’ to make a move.

Someone asked me recently if I ever considered moving back to any of the places I’ve already lived. Honestly, I have not.

Moving has always been an opportunity to discover a new city, new people,  and a new way of life.

But will I say never, though?  Absolutely not.

That’s when I’m guaranteed to reappear!

Your decision

This is so true, it’s kinda scary.

That’s nice

World-Kindness-DayThe Twitter-sphere is all abuzz about today’s holiday of note —

World Kindness Day

This particularly caught my eye because a couple of days ago, the New York Times reported on a recent study that suggests the two most important qualities to affect the longevity of a relationship are generosity and kindness.

So, while you may want to perform a random act of kindness or two to celebrate the day, being kind on a more regular basis could have a big ol’ karma kick-back for you and your special someone.

Just saying.
