A Room with a View

May 30, 2011


It’s been a little while since I’ve had a dream about my mom.  Actually, it isn’t I suppose.  In the overall scheme of things, it hasn’t been that long since she died. In little over a week, it will have been 6 months. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again.  In regards to […]

Like I Never Left

May 11, 2011

I watched Juno the other night on TV, and found that the movie suffered from all the commercial breaks.  I was reminded of why I generally don’t watch movies unless I’ve rented them and can watch them all the way through without interruptions.  But there was nothing else on, and I had heard good things […]
