This movie was awesome! I laughed, cringed, and cried. Ethan Hawke (Everett Lewis) and Sally Hawkins (Maud Lewis) play the lead roles. Sally Hawkins obviously put a lot of heart and soul into the role. Ethan, I haven’t watch him in many roles, Dead Poets Society probably was the last one I saw. I’m totally in his fan club now! The Cinematography was beautiful. Shot in NFLD but resembled Digby and Marshalltown N.S. I was impressed.
Story time…The first time I had a churro I was in Rome. A street vendor happily served up this delicious fried pastry at a green space beside the ruins of the Roman Forum. It was a beautiful sunny day, a holiday for the natives. Quite a backdrop for my first experience. I tasted it and was totally in love. That trip woke up the food adventurer in me. From there I had pizza topped with anchovies and black olives in a Venice take away. In Florence I tried my luck with squid and octopus, served by an Asian waitress who didn’t quite know what to make of my exuberance. Today I’m grateful for that experience, traveling abroad has a different vibe now for me. With terrorist threats and decreased mobility across borders. It’s not the same freeing experience.
Love your neighbor, try adventure!
So I’ve been listening to some fabulous podcasts in the new year. A good friend M got me hooked. I’ve found Lore, about folklore. So awesome for a history nerd like me. I’m a fan of true crime and forensic evidence, so Detective is fascinating. Someone knows something is keeping me on the edge of my seat. My New Years resolutions are getting kicked in the butt by The Minimalists. These guys are so inspiring!!!
I went from this x 3…
I like seeing the yarn. Before I had a mess of colours and weights in plastic bins.
The Halifax rally was a great experience with amazing speakers like El Jones and Rebecca Thomas. Both accomplished poets with inspiring words that brought me to tears.
I remember this house when I was a child driving through Marshaltown, NS. I’ve always been fascinated by her life. So simple a life but she made such an impact. She shone through her work. I have prints of her work around but seeing it in person you can see the true colour and brightness. Her voice is evident, she painted her grim world beautiful. She makes me feel we all have that ability to create hope and spread it around. My own attempts at formal “Art” has helped me learn the amount of energy that can go into something creative. You can feel it when you see it, the energy remains forever in that piece. Even when I create a knitted piece I feel the energy in it.
