"Now and Forever"....movie review..


I rented this movie recently and it was sooooo good!
Incredible actually!.

"Now and Forever", "The sleeper of the Year!
"A beautiful And Daring Love Story"!
"A film that demands to be seen" ..."A must see"

Review:

From the moment they met, despite their
clashing cultures, Native American John Myron
(Adam Beach) and Angela Wilson (Mia Kirshner)
form an unbreakable bond. One fateful night John
Rescues Angela from a wicked act of betrayel. Faced
with it's aftermath, Angela flees town, unaware that
she has set in motion a chain of events that will alter the
course of both their futures in life.....and the next.
A timeless tale of love combined with all the power
and mystery of the "Sixth Sense", "Now and Forever
defies reason and re-defines the boundaries of the human
heart and soul.

Rhiannons take:

I found this movie to be an incredibly spiritual movie.
I'm senstive so it was hard to take some of the graphic
and traumatic scenes, but patience and tolerance is a
virtue and in the end brought great rewards. I loved how
they had John's thoughts narrrated outloud throughout
the movie. I loved his fathers character, as he was a
"Warrior" and a spiritual medicine man healer. I loved
his character throughout the whole movie, as it played
an important part in the story. The ending was sooo
Beautiful , soul searching, incredibly touching
and very Spiritual. Get your hankies out though! You
may need them, or at least you might get a big lump
in your throat. Its rated "R" and you can rent it
in the new movies section at Blockbuster.

Words of John F. Kennedy....

"It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a person stands up for an ideal or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope....and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current which can sweep the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance". ...John F. Kennedy

*This is a post from my archives but I thought it would bare "reposting" right about now...something to think about..

Blessings,
Rhi

You're Beautiful...


Here's the lyrics to the song I spoke of I heard on the radio right after my sweet "little encounter" with the man at the store about a week ago. I just love this song and the video.

You're Beautiful

My life is brilliant
My love is pure
I saw an angel
Of that I'm sure
She smiled at me on the subway
She was with another man
But I won't lose no sleep on that,
'Cause I've got a plan.

You're beautiful, you're beautiful
You're beautiful, it's true
I saw your face in a crowded place,
And I don't know what to do,
'Cause I'll never be with you.

Yeah, she caught my eye,
As we walked on by
She could see from my face that I was
F--king high,
And I don't think that I'll see her again,
But we shared a moment that will last till the end.

You're beautiful, you're beautiful
you're beautiful, it's true.
I saw your face in a crowded place,
And I don't know what to do,
'Cause I'll never be with you.

You're beautiful, you're beautiful
You're beautiful, it's true.
There must be an angel with a smile on her face
When she thought that I should be with you.
But it's time to face the truth,
I will never be with you.

Must Love Dogs....

Movie review..

I just recently saw this movie, "Must love Dogs". I loved it, made me laugh I could so relate. It was refreshing to see a movie being "real" about the online dating stuff going on and yet making a farce of it at the same time. Actress Diane Lane plays the main character, who's sister puts her profile on "Perfectmatch.com" without telling her. Watching it I thought to myself "Wow, she's meeting the exact same type men(I've lost count through the years how many I've met this way) for coffee and also dated same ones I did"!..LMAO!.. It really was so much like my dating online experiences and the lies, players and things they do, like post fake photos, some not even them, or post a photo thats about 15 years old! I mean do they not realize that when (if) you meet them, your going to see that suddenly they have aged 15-20 years within a few weeks! Best just to be "real". It was good to laugh about it seeing another woman go through the same deal, made me feel better I wasn't the only one that thought this way and felt this way about it. Though it was just a movie I felt it really made a "clear" statement about all these so called "professional" online dating services.


I loved it when she was on one blind(meeting) date for lunch, she finally couldn't take it anymore and readjusted her dates "toupee" so it was on straight!..:o) Her and I had a lot in common, divorced, no kids, but working with kids, and living on our own. The main thing we didn't have in common was she had a loving family around her (but they were match making and pressuring her to do online dating) and her father was such a caring father and funny, because he was doing online dating also! She found herself being thrown into this "culture shock" of the "new dating system world"! She was clueless like I was too! I'm not anymore. She said so many things I felt about relationships and the whole dating online deal and about dating in general the way its changed so. Then she met "Jake" (again, his friend forced him to try online dating) a guy who was actually a "real" man, his own person didn't play the game, but she didn't realize that at first and almost blew it...and so did he. I liked that they both made mistakes, were uncomfortable, nervous, showed it and told each other they were. Real type human beings! Of course how could you not like Jake when the actor playing him was John Cusak?!...:-)

I have learned two things from professional online dating sites. Their advice usually DOESN'T work! But two do. If you meet for coffee or lunch the first time and your date is rude, or "dismissive" of the waitress or waiter, move on! "Timeline"...if the e-mails keep dragging out for a month or longer and only a phone call or two and there is no talk of meeting soon, they just "aren't that into you" or their lazy and afraid, and are waiting for you to make all the effort and chase them!..so "Move on"!...Takes two to tango not one! Or you could take one last "risk" at it and subtley send them a nice message that you've enjoyed the e-mail communications but don't want to do "e-mails forever", and would like to "talk and meet sometime soon"?..if you get no response or just more e-mails, then "move on"!!..lol. Or if you realize your not "into them" and nothing is "happening" best let them know ASAP and move on! Don't make them waste their energy and time, or yours. The 3rd and 4th advice is my own. 3rd... If you think they are a nice guy and you would like to be friends with them and you tell them this, and they tell you yeah they could be your friend don't believe them! Thats not what they want! They are lying! 4th... If they give you their phone number via e-mail and tell you to "call them"...MOVE ON! If they say something like "I've enjoyed our communcations or chats, I was wondering would you be willing to give me your phone numnber, I'd really like to call and talk with you" then STAY PUT!...he he..:-)

Sigh..I so wish that people in real life near by or when your out and about in the "real" world would just do what they used to. Talk to you start a converstation or you start one, and you take it from there! Fear and all I've done it! Even though I'm a bit shy and I'm not a forward type woman at all. I've seen men look terrified not knowing what to do! Why? Then I feel stupid! Only later to find out they did like me but didn't know how to talk or approach women anymore in "real life"!..eeeeerrrrr.. What a concept hey, actually approaching someone?! Now its all backwards to me I don't get it! Hey better than hiding behind computers! I just don't fit into this "phony" online dating stuff. I hate it! This year I'm making some changes about "me".. ..not sure exactly in detail I just know I'm going to take things as they come along and keep being "me"....

"Must love someone who's real and not fake"!...that would be my online profile title, if I were to ever try it again, because I stopped online dating stuff last March and not sure if I will ever "get into it" again...if somethings meant to happen it will...got to trust in that and not pay some stupid so called "professional" online dating service..including E. Harmony..Not!

This is the "the other side of Rhiannon" and I'm showing her to you now! If you don't like what I say well its been my experiences thus far, so its only my opinion. Except for my one year relationship with someone 5 years ago who I met IN PERSON(not online) in REAL LIFE and our eyes met and that was it! When he said "well now how I am going to talk with you again"? I looked into his eyes, smiled at him and said "Oh, your a big boy I'm sure you'll figure it out".....:-)....then he asked me for my ph.#...and it went on from there! Maybe I shouldn't have given it to him after the way we broke up?..I'm still confused!..LOL!..:-)

I've never dated or met but one man my age since single. They have all been younger than me....I used to ask myself why but it just is what is....the man I was married to was younger than me also. Its just that men my age (or older) have NEVER contacted or approached me (via online dating or in person) but I wish they would in a way.

Signed Confused but learning,
Rhiannon

Earth Angel story...

I've posted this Artwork of mine (above post) before, not sure why but I felt like posting it again for the New Year. I like the fact that after scanning this drawing I can tint it to just about any color I want on photo express. I sold it to 3 people and asked each of them if they wanted it a different tint color, so they each requested different color prints so that was easy!

I will share a little story, of a "one minute" encounter with a man at a store the other day who walked right up to me looked into my eyes and said "you have a beautiful face, like an angel"...so sweet...and so brave of him to have the courage to say that to a total stranger with all those people around!..I kind of blushed...then he walked away....never to be seen again. People who witnessed it in the store were smiling, especially the ladies. A woman standing next to me whispered in my ear "I saw him standing a distance away looking at you and then he just came right over to you how brave and romantic of him, I've never seen anything like it before"! She was stunned also! How did he know thats just what I needed to hear to start my New Years off right?! Another "Earth angel" indeed! I always have felt that my guardian angel was a "he"...Maybe it was him? Who knows? It was very strange. Oh well story of my life!

No men around here ever talk like that let alone have the courage to speak their mind or feelings. I said thank you to him when he said what he did and he replied "no need to thank me, I just spoke the truth"...so sweet so special!...he was a nice looking man too. He had kind of longish dark hair, handsome, he looked a lot like a Renaissance type man. Was he real? lol. As I walked to my car in the parking lot, got in it, turned the radio on and the song "Your Beautiful" by James Blunt came on, I couldn't believe it! It almost fit to what had just happened! Plus one of my favorites songs! How eerie is that? I'm going to post the lyrics to that song very soon on here. Wherever this man may be, thank you for you gave me hope for "man" and "mankind"!...still some brave romantics around! I didn't think they existed anymore! I thought my ex husband was the last one left!..ha ha. Maybe thats what made me think of this "Romantic Angels" drawing...anyway enough of this chatter but what a way to start off the New Year....

Visions....


Moonbeams wink
at the night stars
flashing memories
of mistakes gone by...
Stars twinkle back
in acknowledgment
of the universe...
Galaxies open and close
to visions
beyond our destiny.....

I have no clue about this pic here I played with. It started out with just a pic of a few moon phases lined up, but then I just kept playing with it on photo express for about an hour and this is what I ended up with. Not sure what it is!....use your imagination..

Jim Morrison Drawing...did this at age 17..



Did this when very young so I know its not fine tuned or anything..but hey at age 17 what is? Thought of making it into t-shirts a while back so I fiddled with some colors and design on it on photo express...but now there are Jim t-shirts everywhere!...anyway I remember I mentioned I would post this drawing on my blog..so here it is!
