I picked up “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” on Blu-ray.  What sparked my curiosity was the marketing promo for this film.  Instead of spending $25k on a trailer, the filmmaker decided to help out typhoon victims across the globe.

Pretty enlightening movie.

To sum it up, better to do something than just dream about it.

Check it out if you’re interested.

Power

April 26, 2013

ALICE-WALKER
“The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.”
-Alice Walker

Life can be challenging sometimes and there is always going to be that naysayer who is not compassionate.

That person is just ignorant and most likely does not experience love.

They can let you down.  They can make you feel like crap, making you think they have the power and control over you.

What you have to do is remind yourself.  You have that power too.

Julie and Juila

April 8, 2013

Meryl Streep as "Julia Child" in Columbia Pictures' JULIE & JULIA.

Whenever I’m feeling down or challenged, I put on a movie.  The movie : Nora Ephron’s “Julie and Julia”.

Reasons why I love watching this movie:
– It’s encouraging
– Great location : Paris and New York
– It’s based on a true story
– It’s about food
– It’s about blogging
– Great relationships : Julie and Julia’s relationships with their spouse and girlfriends.
– It’s directed by Nora Ephron and Meryl Streep playing Julia Child (need I say more)

I highly recommend you watch it if you haven’t seen it.

Bon appetit!
