KillgoreTrout On February - 2 - 2013

Every sunrise is an analogue of life. To wait for the sun, and after great anticipation, it’s sudden appearance is magnificent. I have seen many and there is always a promise there. A promise that we will be blessed with another
day, another chance at perfecting our humanity. Another wondrous display pointing to the possibilities within each of us. Even cloudy mornings shed light. They break the darkness and help us continue through the trials and tribulations, the sorrows and joys that only light makes possible.

Such light that is only made possible by the goodness and knowledge of those that come before us. Those that have taken the test and passed without doubt, those who freely gave the lessons learned.

Once a wander, working vagabond, fellow traveler on this 3rd stone from the sun. Hurtling through space and time. Lover of books (especially the classics), all kinds of books from novels, poetry, essay collections, fiction and nonfiction and a big Kurt Vonnegut fan. I am a secular humanist and technically an atheist.....Taoist.

    You will have to excuse the 80s hair do and padded shoulders. My friend (yes, I am proud to call her that) Maura O’Connell, singing “If You Love Me” at a festival in Cork. Her voice is spectacular. I don’t think there is any better.

    • At the Movies in the White House WH Screening Room

      With all of the hoopla surrounding the films screened in the Obama White House, I got curious about what the past presidents watched. What follows is by no means complete, but an interesting bit of history.

    • The 100 Foot Journey 220px-The_Hundred_Foot_Journey_(film)_poster

      The film is a truly great mixture of drama, resistance to the forces of politics, the adroit combination comedy, and love story, in a culinary battle for the utmost Michilin Star rating for an established French fine dining enterprise that is a mere 100 feet apart from a brand new (to the village) Indian restaraunt.
