Remember too . . .

Late for the movies 1940

Man meets woman, in this case, man and woman met again. The Philadelphia Story, starring Katharine Hepburn as Tracy Samantha Lord Haven, and Cary Grant as C.K. Dexter Haven.

We all need second chances, but do we deserve them? Here was a man that was still in love with the woman he had divorced. Playful, yes, but serious when he saw a chance to win back the love of a woman that still had a place in his heart before she got married to someone else. And she, a tough exterior that hid a frightful person inside. Vowing not to love him again and trying to deny that she did, the movie details how a second chance can be comical and serious. Of course, there is much more in the movie than that.

But like some people, what others see on the outside might not be the truth of what might be in the inside. And like some people, living in denial of something can only bring heartache and yes, missed opportunities of second chances.

Love this movie.

Becoming a lie?

When does love become a lie?

Sexy

“I had a marketing idea that everybody hated, decency is sexy.” James L. Brooks

“I think people are sexy when they have a sense of humor, when they are smart, when they are kind, when they express their own opinions, when they are creative, when they have character.” Suzanne Vega

“I think sexy is vulnerability, and there’s no way that you can act vulnerable. It just has to be there.” Michael Zaslow

“I think trying too hard to be sexy is the worst thing in the world a woman can do.” Christian Bale

“A great figure or physique is nice, but it’s self-confidence that makes someone really sexy.” Vivica Fox

Everything?

Is everything forgivable?

Have a lovely, sunflower day. 🙂

Is it?

Is life fair? A question you have perhaps heard before. But what makes life unfair?

Is it right that some business leaders go to jail, fined, chewed out or whatever for cooking their books, lying to the public, hiding the facts to move ahead, while some leaders of countries doing the same things or perhaps similar do not?

Is it fair that some countries label Cuba and China as communist countries, places that violate the rights of their citizens, but those same countries turn around and do business with one of them, China, and still wave the embargo flag at the other?

Is it on a level playing field that there seems to be sometimes two sets of laws, one for the rich and the other for the poor? Or is it simply the fact that getting a lawyer that the best money can retain is a plus?

Etc, etc, etc.

Have a lovely, sunflower day. 🙂

Is Your Door Open?

When it comes to compromise, and I am not talking about the good kind either. You know the kind where two person or more come to a resolution by giving up something without eroding who or what they believe in.

The kind I am talking about is the opposite of that. The type of compromise that some people act on when they go against what they believe in. The kind where they look like hypocrites because they are not standing up for what they said that they stood for. The kind where they allow others to chip away at their foundation. The kind where they let the latest fad or trend dictate their actions.

In your faith, if you have any. In your social causes. In your relationships. In your family. In your  . . . Is the door to compromise open?

Woe is me

I find it nauseating at times when some people want to remain “victims” for the rest of their lives. Always wanting someone to feel sorry for them. Always wanting the government to continue to supply them with things that they can supply for themselves, only if they try. Always wanting person A or person B to do things for them that they know that they can do but do not feel the need to be doing for themselves.

Is it much safer to stay a victim of circumstances? Is it easier to live in a sphere of self-pity?
