I don't have a favorite because I really dislike scary movies. My dreams by themselves are very intense and I remember them all so I don't need any help from scary movies. I like my dream world as it is, calm and soothing, I do not need or want any nightmares disturbing my sleep.
What is great about the whole movement and already one enormous win for the 99% is the redirection of the national conversation towards lack of jobs, income inequality, crony capitalism and more. Another exciting aspect is watching the movement grow and transform on its own timetable. MTV is going to do a “documentary” on 3 young protestors, taking it to the airwaves. The occupiers had their generators taken from the NYFD did they give up? No, they are still on track but they are going with bicycle powered generators which should be up and running by Monday. I don’t think that this will stop even if for example, the American Jobs Act got passed or the Bush Tax cuts were allowed to expire. This is bigger, I think that this is a deeper protest, this is about getting the true freedom of opportunity back into the social contract. The economic mobility dream that was seared into every American’s brain has been shown to be a myth, we want the dream back and money and politics have been a huge factor in killing the dream. There is so much to be done and changed, it is exciting to watch.

I have two questions, are these reports at all influenced by the hawks we have in the military command and in the congress? Secondly, is the Taliban’s continued strength a result of a war that was badly managed from the start, when instead of keeping the focus on Afghanistan, we shifted to Iraq and lost whatever momentum we had in Afghanistan and we never were able to recapture it? The Iraqi’s government wants us out by the end of 2011 but what says the Afghanistan government and its people? Two completely different wars, people and scenario’s. I don’t have an answer only questions.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. You are also more than just the sum of your parts and I read somewhere that there is a mathematical proportion that is a standard for beauty, it is called the Golden Ratio or Phi, each number in the sequence is the sum of the previous two numbers; 1,1,2,3,5,8,13,, or 1.618. It has to do with spatial dynamics and proportions, I’m thinking about that features that make up Angelina Jolie, the wide-set eyes, the high cheek bones, the nose not too big or wide and those full lips almost perfectly balanced, all account for perfect proportions .
Yet there is more than what meets the eye when true beauty is concerned, how is it that someone can become more beautiful as you get to know them or conversely less beautiful? It starts when they open their mouths. Intelligence, humor, kindness are all qualities revealed when someone speaks, the words and the content of their thoughts have the ability to alter your perception of their physical appearance. I have been amazed quite a few times when an actor can transform a character into a handsome character, such as in the movie Pride and Prejudice, the one that stars Kierra Knightley as Ms. Bennett and the English actor whose work I’m not very familiar with plays Mr. Darcy. The actor isn’t handsome yet his performance as Mr. Darcy had me seeing Mr. Darcy as a very attractive man, a character worthy of falling in love with, I’ve seen the same actor in other roles, and the attraction was lost.
I had my share of young loves, some very good-looking and others not your typical standard of beauty but in my eyes they were the most beautiful because they were funnier, more interesting and lovable. This has always informed my view of beauty, the more you intrigue me and make me laugh, the more beautiful you become in my eyes. Laughter is divine, a real tonic to the soul, whoever brings you laughter will be beautiful in your eyes.
Beauty is also fleeting, if one can be lucky enough to find their mates for life either in love or friendship, their beauty will never fade because they will always be beautiful in the eyes of their loved ones. That is also the beauty of love, beauty can lead to love and love always leads to beauty. No matter what anyone says, somewhere in the innermost private place in a person’s mind, everyone wants to be beautiful in someone else’s eyes, what makes beauty great is that it is subjective and it is fueled by love so if you can love, you can find beauty.
My husband, we've been married almost twenty-one years and we have been through so many things together. Children, family tragedies, moving to different states, good times and bad times. All that shared history does reveal everything about yourself and if you have stayed together through it all, the other will know you better than anyone else.
