Hello to you – hope this finds you well wherever and whenever you are – it’s Friday at 6:06 pm as I write to you. Kyle and I are home from having a pretty terrific day with his brother Drew. We went to the Olive Garden in Burleson, one of my all-time favorite places to eat, for lunch and as always the food and service was great and of course so was the company!
While we were waiting for the 2:15 showing of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 at the AMC theatre, we went to a couple of places. Drew took us to a retro game and video store called GameXChange off of Wilshire Blvd where we both found movies we had been wanting – The Incredibles, August Rush and Dr. Strange. I’m sure we could have found many more had we kept looking but we flagged ourselves! We’ve been looking for a used copy of The Incredibles for a really long time – one of Pixar’s best films in our opinions! I’ve almost bought August Rush like 3 or 4 times because it’s one of my favorite films with Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Robin Williams. Of course we were going to get a copy of Dr. Strange! The reason I never really did a review of Dr. Strange is because when we saw it was around the time of my last hospital stay and around the time our cat Amber suddenly died. I was literally in the middle of an “episode” (an alternate state) and those who have seen the film know it was trippy subject matter to begin with! It’s all about alternate states of consciousness and alternate dimensions! Now that we have a copy and can watch it again at home, I think I will be better able to properly assess what I am watching and will share about it! I just wasn’t ready for it before.
The other place we went while we were waiting was one of my favorite places in Burleson, the Half-Price bookstore. I found a very interesting old book very old book called The Ethereal Aether by Loyd S. Swenson Jr. It was $30 and I could tell even though I would comprehend some of it, there would be much that would probably go over my head. Mathematics were never my strong suite in school! They had some Edgar Cayce books I looked at but the book that resonated the most and met me in the middle of the other two books was Gateway to the Heavens by Karen L. French. I’m looking forward to exploring it tonight!

I will not ruin the movie for those who haven’t seen it, but I will say that the things I’ve been exploring and sharing, especially earlier today, tie in almost perfectly to what I saw on the big screen today…”Shadow on the Son!” This movie made me laugh out loud several times and made me cry too. The themes and story resonated with me very much. The colors and images in this movie were so vibrant – rainbows colors and fireworks! This movie is the first movie of this genre we’ve seen since the first Avengers film in 2012, where Kyle and I left the theatre feeling good! The humor, action and drama struck just the right balance in me. We will definitely add this one to our collection! Great job to all involved!
