This Week’s Blog Winner Is…

Passionate Pursuits by Brenda Moguez!

If you haven’t read Brenda’s blog yet, you’re in for a treat. She weaves thoughtful, lyrical magic to all aspects of womanhood. Add the threads of sensuality and authenticity, and you get a blog that always intrigues!

While I’m reading Brenda’s blog, I’ve gotten surprisingly used to the sound of jackhammers. Yesterday I managed to do my Ellen Barrett DVD while they were going on! Gotta get my exercise, and Ellen, as you all know by now, is my fave.

In the meantime, have you seen The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel yet? It’s refreshing to see a fine film where older people are still vital, working, loving, and finding meaning in their lives. Judi Dench and Maggie Smith are just a few of the brilliant actors in this movie. Filmed in India, the chaos of Indian life is its own character, and many of the scenes were filmed among regular residents just going about their day. The beautiful line that threads the movie together is this: “Everything turns out all right in the end. If it’s not all right, it’s not the end.” The first time we tried to see it, it was sold out! Last night we were still sitting waaaayyy up front. Hollywood, we want more like these!

Remember that skirt I’ve been knitting? Well, next week I have a lot more to say about that. Let’s just say it’s been an “interesting” experience. I may also post a Tuesday book review. I know, I said I wasn’t going to do that anymore for a while, but I’ve been reading some great stuff that I want to share. Enjoy your weekend!
