Hello to you! It’s 9:08 am on this Thursday from the dimension I share with my husband, Link, Spot and May. How are you?! The conclusion of yet another week is near. The days are starting to get shorter and the mornings cooler….my favorite season is almost here! Fall! Going to keep it short this morning. No one at our house has been operating on full cylinders for a few days now but it’s getting better. We are grateful for our simple life together! Much love, hugs and light to you today.
Peace by Jackie Schmidt 15 July 2006
Something odd about the news today
There was little or nothing negative
For them to say
Seems that all the wars came to an end
All the soldiers took a former enemy by the hand
Looked them in the eye and called them friend
Seems the children in the cities with their guns and hate
All the adults with their addictions and workaholic ways
Decided all that could wait
For in their hearts remade and new
Had found something more positive
They could all do
In the midst of the rubble of many a dark past
All living things focused together
On one thing they decided was worth making last
Such a lovely dream for a dreamer destined to wake
Such a lovely Hope lingering
When dimmed causes the heart to ache
Such a simple word to say really – Peace…..
P.S A topic quite contrary to Peace is the war that has waged for many a century over energy. I saw the trailer for The Current War starring Benedict Cumberbatch and my curiosity was piqued! Kyle and I are not Thomas Edison fans, consider him a villain of sorts even! It will be interesting to see how Ben portrays him. He’s good at playing these sorts of fellows! An actor named Nicholas Hoult http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0396558/?ref_=ttfc_fc_cl_t4) will be portraying my hero, Nikola Tesla.
Is it just me or does it seem like the only place growing new actors and actresses is non-American English speaking countries?! A lot of this films cast isn’t American and ironically they are telling an American story lol! WTF?!! Why does this keep happening? Are these roles too complicated for American actors or something?! Kyle and I came up with a new term, “Brit-washing.” It’s a form of White-Washing Kyle and I have noticed going on in Hollywood for quite some time now. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely adore Benedict Cumberbatch doing just about anything he gets hired to do whether or not he’s suited for it. It just would be nice to see actual Americans telling the stories of America once in a while! Whether it’s historical figures or superhero’s.
