Validation – A Smile can go a LONG way

A friend sent me this video a while back and it’s so precious! A smile, a compliment can go such a long way. It’s a small yet powerful demonstration how we are all connected and that our moods, works, action can create a ripple effect and really change people. I was reminded of this today and had to watch it again. Enjoy!

Julie & Julia

A few months ago, a good friend called me in tears to ask if I could watch Julie & Julia with her after a very disappointing day.

I left my kitchen in a mess and happily agreed to lend my shoulder.


I try not to have high expectations with blockbuster films but Avatar did not disappoint!

The underlying theme of colonialism has been seen many times in past films as is in Avatar. With the help of an ingenious setting, captivating love story and the oh-so-cool 3-D graphics, this film tells a story of the greed and corruption of humanity, destroying homes and lands for profit and power.
