~ The Village ~

I saw THE VILLAGE tonight. Go to this link to learn more about it: http://thevillage.movies.go.com/

Weird. For some reason if I put a hot link connecting "THE VILLAGE" to the site I want you to look at, Blogger wipes out THE VILLAGE title so you can't see anything. Anywho, click on the above link to view the official THE VILLAGE site.

I did not read anything about it prior to seeing it because I wanted to keep the suspense of not knowing what it was about. Came home and was curious about the reviews and went to Rotten Tomatoes and I could not believe it, the movie was panned! Huh? I thought it was very inventive, fresh, suspenseful, scary, dramatic, and romantic. All those elements in one movie? The acting worked for me and the cast was strong. I don't get it. If you saw it tonight (or any other time after this), what did you think?

~ The Law Of Relevance ~

"No matter how scared, or tired, or ill you are.... no matter how lost, or confused, or desperate you become.... no matter how lonely, depressed, or cranky you feel: If you just do what you can, with what you have, from right where you are, IT WILL ALWAYS BE ENOUGH."
This quote and others can be delivered to your in-box if you go to this web site: Totally Unique Thought's.
 
I like that quote.  It's true.  We tend to lose the focus in our lives over issues that stress us.  If we remember a quote like this in our time(s) of need, perhaps we will be able to relax and focus on the positive.  I am all for positive self improvement and with my current broken heart, I am especially open to the small philosophies of life that bring forth enlightenment.
 
 
This is Kabuki.  Otherwise known as "Buki," "Kapoopy".  Kabuki is a male Eclectus parrot.  Eclectus parrots originate from the Solomon Islands.  These islands are located close to New Zealand.  I have had Kabuki since February 2001 and he is very special to me.  Kabuki will be the mascot of this site and I will refer about him often.

~The World Is My Oyster ~


I have never been able to figure out what this saying means. "The world is my oyster". Not quite sure why I am thinking about it right now, but I decided to do a search. The very first entry, this is what it said:

Q. Did Shakespeare coin the phrase "the world is my oyster"?

A. Yes. The quote comes from Shakespeare's only comedy set in England, "The Merry Wives of Windsor":

Why, then the world's mine oyster,
Which I with sword will open.
Pistol -- (2.2.3-4)

I read Shakespeare in high school, and I believe in college, but if I were playing Jeopardy right now there is no way that I would have remembered that this quote was coined by Shakespeare. Fancy though that it stuck in my head. The memory is a boggling thing. My memory has changed over the years, can't remember stuff quite like I used to. I believe it’s because of the medication that I take, but none-the-less one can't quite stop worrying about whether or not they will get Alzheimer's in their golden years. I don’t know which is worse, The Big A or The Big C. Nearly my entire adult life I have had such bad luck that I am hoping, starting today, that as I enter the middle phase of my life that my luck will change and among other things, allow me to stay healthy till the end of my days. I believe that I have paid my dues, in full.

~ Are You Awake Too? ~

It's late, thus the Lateness Of The Hour is formed. I recently purchased that domain to create a web site dedicated especially for you late night owls (and I also include those dastardly early morning risers and those in between). However, since it (my web site) will take me some time to create and have it viewable for my lovin' public, this blog will have to tide me (and you) over.

Normally, I would discuss random tidbits about
insomnia and what you can do during your late night prowls, but what currently is on my mind is not sleep deficiencies, but heart break. Yes, I am one of love lost's children and recently fresh. It hurts bad, and I need a release. Sure, I am currently being loving supported by my close friends, but there are times and just random situations where I don't feel like actually talking to anyone. Writing can be a very powerful instrument and also oddly enough a healing tool. Not as good as chocolate, but heck, fairly close in my book.

One can only hope that this blog will help remedy my shattered heart. Maybe it will help you with yours too.


As you wish...
