...and I feel a bit better.

ruminations and thanks )

In other news, I have begun watching recent movies (i.e. post 2006) - finally caught "There Will Be Blood" which I adored. Looking forward to seeing it again, this time without commercial interruption.

Other reviews:
- If you haven't heard of Lana Del Ray, you may be living under a rock. She's actually an artist named Lizzie Grant who has been repackaged by her management to help sales. Don't let that stop you from listening to her. She's fabulous.


- I read non-fiction almost exclusively and most of my reading lately has been centered around chaplaincy and materials science. Not much general fare. If you enjoy Buddhist writing, I highly recommend the accessible, "Who Ordered This Truckload of Dung? Inspiring Stories for Welcoming Life's Difficulties" by Ajahn Brahm. The subtitle is a misnomer. There are 108 stories that share Buddhist themes, many of them Brahm's personal experience, and an equal number laugh out loud funny.

- Do catch Brian Greene's latest NOVA work "Fabric of the Cosmos" - you can watch episodes on PBS.org and the Quantum Mechanics episode was outstanding.
