Stillwater Saturday, Aug 21 2021 

Still waters run deep – is a great explanation of Matt Damon’s character. He plays a low key character – construction worker – whose daughter was imprisoned in France for a murder. He cannot accept this and eventually ends up moving to Marseilles to be near the prison she is in and to try to clear her name. He has a very lucky relationship with a French woman and her daughter and they become roommates. He doesn’t speak much French and she interprets in his search for the killer. This film is extremely well crafted – acting wise and in every other way. Be prepared for surprises.

The Father Tuesday, Mar 30 2021 

Anthony Hopkins is exceptionally good in this movie based on a theatre play. It is quite cleverly done . The way the characters are shuffled around the audience becomes as confused as the Alzheimer’s patient. I would expect to see an Oscar nomination. The wealth of emotion and intelligence in this portrayal is striking.

Several years ago I was a very busy lampworker (= making glass beads with a special torch). Now due to health concerns ( nothing communicable) I’ve had to stop. Hence I have returned to bead weaving where I started. I also used to free- lance graphic design. My husband has uncovered some of my work, of which I am very proud. It was in storage. And now I hope there is someone out there that appreciates my muse. My favorite on this page is the Wood Nymph necklace. The shoes are made by another artist in Southern Oregon, but I don’t recall her name unfortunately.

Pieces of a Woman Saturday, Jan 9 2021 

A gripping film with a redemptive ending. If you’re pregnant , I’d maybe pass this up. As careful as “Call the Midwife” in portraying childbirth accurately; it seemed even more immediate and painful before and after the birth. The female lead is very very good and is paired with Shia Lebeouf- who shows us more than once that men can cry. I would say it is a woman’s film. My husband said it was painful to watch.

my favorite stone Turquoise Thursday, May 9 2013 

from the site Emily gems the meaning of Turquoise

Turquoise Gemstone meaning

Turquoise is one of the oldest protection amulets, and was also known as a symbol of wealth in many ancient cultures.

 

Strength, protection from harm, psychic sensitivity and connection to the spirit world

 

If given a turquoise by a loving friend, that stone would protect the wearer from negative energy and bring good fortune. The turquoise is the symbol of friendship. It also brings peace to the home.

This stone is a very personal and meaningful stone to one who wears it. Turquoise takes on the characteristics of the owner.

Turquoise carries great wisdom of basic truth within it. It is one of the oldest stones known. This is a stone that a person must learn to attune to instead of the stone attuning to the person. It is important that the owner of a Turquoise give it the proper attention.
