Saw a lot of movies over the past 6 months and was excitedly compelled to watch the Oscars last night. Let's face it.. it's pretty hard to understand what all the hoopla is about when you're clueless about the flicks being mentioned.
Of course, there was the usual Hollywood curiosity of superficial fluff....the gowns, the speeches, the bling...who sat with whom, who tripped going up the stairs, who could have worn a bigger size dress... ooh! aah!
True magic for me are the confessional testiments of trials and triumphs for these celebrity icons. We all admire the gltiz and glamour, but often forget that it's an uphill battle to retain sanity while your dreaming. It's a precious miracle when you share your vision and folks don't think your crazy. It's an absolute blessing when friends, colleagues, family members actually venture out to support you. And who picks you up when you fall? Ben Affleck said it best during his acceptance speech for Picture of Year - Argo. It's a phrase we hear all the time, yet it seemed like the first time when Ben said it...." It's not how many times you fall that counts. It's how many times you keep getting back up", or something like that. Anyway...you get the picture.
What's your take?
Seems like Christmas and the whole New Year's hoopla was eons ago, right? Shockingly folks, it was just last month...a few slim weeks ago. If you made any Resolutions for the New Year, it's probably a good time to consciously review how your doing.
I started to think about the habits I committed to change....the folks I wanted to release from my circle and the projects I kept saying I wanted to complete....you know the ones that make you sound like a whiny, broken down, bootlegged , 8-track tape that's scratchy and annoying....but you keep listening to it.
Although I've made progress, I must admit, I've got a long ways to go. I love these times, however, when something jars my spirit enough to take my pulse and examine how far I've moved from where I was, to where I really want to be. For me, my goals and aspirations are better charted and reviewed on paper than thought up in this mish-mosh of a brain.

The hoopla of yesterdays Superbowl Game still resonates in the Monday air. The Baltimore Ravens from the East nailed the trophy with pure skill, determination and drooling hunger. They could taste their win as soon as the locker room door burst open at kick-off. And even after the unexpected hiccup in near darkness when the lights in the stadium disappeared, this mighty team came back to snatch up the ultimate prize.
There are lessons to be learned here, ladies (and gents).
Although the name "raven" might not sound so pretty, I was curious about why this particular bird deserves to be in the big leagues. Here are a few "hmmm" facts about them that jiggled a little juice in my Gatorade tank:
