It’s A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (Spoiler free)
From the moment I sat in the seat at the theater, I was ready for home and childhood and....safety. Mr. Rogers was safe. Always. Oh please don't screw that up. Right now, of all the things in my life, I need the peace, healing. Safety. Even though I didn't realize it when I bought the tickets to the movie, I desperately needed to sit in a dark theater and just be, well, loved for a couple of hours without judgment. I needed this movie. I think a lot of people do.

When I first started reading on my own (and FINALLY didn’t need someone to read TO me) Paddington became one of my best friends. I absolutely adored his adventures because he felt a little bit like me. I was an only child and both of my parents worked, so I was often left to my own devices. Sometimes it turned out to be really cool and others turned out….not so great. So I found a kindred spirit in this bear that didn’t exactly have a family or feel like he fit in anywhere. Like me, Paddington often found himself on his own and he had the most precious spirit! He…
But I have the right to…..
Okay, let me start here by saying that I hate confrontation. For most of the election season, I kept quiet on all topics. I tend to shy away from debate. Maybe I’m a people pleaser. Maybe I am just not strong enough on the debate side. I really don’t know. I just know that I usually shrink back into the corner on all things politics/debate/controversy. There’s been a real uptick in people who are involved in politics and registering their opinions. Social media has given everyone a platform to say what they like and believe. In many ways, this is a good thing. It’s given people a voice. But the…
My Thoughts on The Shack
Unless you have been under a rock, you’ve likely heard about the movie, The Shack. Open confession here: I haven’t read the book. That usually makes most people gasp and freak out when I say it. I read books professionally, so it’s just assumed that I read this one. When I was invited to this early screening (thank you KSLR, The Fish San Antonio and my friend Audra!) I was able to step in and watch without any preconceived notions. But I will admit here that I was freaked out a little. My newsfeed on Facebook these days doesn’t look too awfully different than it did during the election. Instead…
Some thoughts on the #Oscars…
As many of you know, I work in the entertainment industry. For about 12 years, I’ve been blessed to work with everything from television networks to small indie films and box office powerhouses. I don’t claim to know everything, understand everything or even come close to being at the level of the people honored last night by the Academy. Everything here is just my opinion so take it with whatever size piece of salt you feel necessary. 🙂 I love stories. I always have. From even before the time I could read, I remember cuddling up in corners with books and building stories to go with the pictures. Many of…
