So, I decided it was time to update the look on my blog. I was really tired of the boring brown. It was dark. And getting kind of depressing. And so, not me. So I switched. And the new template actually helped clean up the clutter and re-worked the sidebars and links and posting without extra work! Yeah for me! (well, actually, yeah for Blogger...but anyway...)
I feel refreshed. At least Blogwise.

Thoughts on Friendship

“ A friend is one to whom one may pour out all the contents of one's heart, chaff and grain together, knowing that the gentlest of hands will take and sift it, keep what is worth keeping and, with the breath of kindness, blow the rest away.” – William Penn

"It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art... It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things that give value to survival." - C. S. Lewis

Family Camp is over --- let the post-camp therapy commence

Well, we went to camp. And it was wonderful.
And now I'm tired. But it's a good kind of tired. As I told my friends, you're allowed to be tired at camp - because you're doing stuff! :^)
I hope that Heaven is a little bit like Family Camp - minus the sore legs. Someone told me that they think Family Camp is little bit of Heaven. I'm glad.

Jane Eyre

Jane Eyre. 2008 Masterpiece theater edition.

Two Words: Loved. It.

The end.

I suppose I could elaborate a bit more. Keep in mind, this is coming from someone who once did not like Jane Eyre at all. I reformed my opionion of the book about a year ago when I re-read it. I decided I thought it was pretty good. I think this movie has changed my opinion again. The actors did such a manificent job playing their parts. It wasn't like watching actors, I felt I like was watching the Mr. Rochester and Jane Eyre - I felt they captured the characters so completely. Now I want to re-read the book to see how much creative license they took with the screenplay...I'll try and do a follow up post after I've finished.
