“The rules are broken”

Review by Eddie on 18/11/2021

From humble beginnings out of the Blumhouse production studio with the original low-budgeted Ethan Hawke starring 2013 film, horror/thriller franchise The Purge has been a film series that has refused too die and while long time stalwart behind the camera James DeMonaco has here handed the reigns over to new director Everardo Gout, The Forever Purge marks an improvement on the previous few entries into the franchise that while not setting the world on fire, at least breaths new life into a…

“Do you believe in ghosts?” 

Review by Eddie on 19/11/2021

His conquered the living dead with nothing more than unwanted vinyl records, alien invaders in small country towns and even managed to wrangle baby drivers but there’s no doubt Last Night in Soho is beloved British director and critical darling Edgar Wright’s most ambitious film yet and a film that doesn’t always reach the lofty goals it sets for itself even if its a beautifully shot and unique…

Oh My God!

Highway to 5th Heaven

Recovering from a horse kick has been more difficult then anticipated and acutely painful beyond reason. To entertain me during my convalescence, Mother has been sending me unbelievably mouth dropping, “Oh my God!” Moments. Oh, and when I did find a yellow jacket nest (not wasp!) where I got stung, again my mouth hung open in absolute disbelief for before my eyes was the biggest nest I have ever seen [think melon or basket ball]. My hands were just inches from this nest when I was pruning the bush it is in, unknowingly of course of what I came so near to.

Friends, after reading about these yellow jackets I am lucky I am alive for they normally, if believing their nest is in danger of attack, will send out an army of yellow jackets to swarm and sting, injecting venom into their victim. I only got stung by two…

Can You Feel It?

Highway to 5th Heaven

“When we live our life loving what we do, the world transforms to one of joy and beauty.”
quote by AmyRose

Friday I had a hair appointment at a salon which is owned by a friend. Walking in I was greeted with so much noise coming from laughter and conversation of many at once. A silly grin broke out all over my face as I could just feel myself glow!! OH for the joy!! People acting like people again and it is all because my friend lives her life from a place of love.

Every single person in that room was so hungry for connection, conversation and just good company. I give my friend monumental credit for how she is handling life and her business especially because her salon is located in a plaza where fear is very evident. She is being such a huge example of what we all…

Light in Darkness

Highway to 5th Heaven

On a cool slightly overcast day, I returned to a forest seeking Divinity. I knew I would find this Great Treasure. My favorite time to photograph a forest is in cloudy conditions for it is within those parameters that ambient or hidden Light is best discovered. This day I deliberately waited for the clouds to cover the sun before using my camera, yet too, some of what I captured wanted sun to be embraced, so I complied. Many times my physical eyes do not see Light especially on cloudy days, yet I strongly sense or feel “something” that then directs my sacred lens to find the Light.

Being present in the House of God that day, I humbly thanked Mother for again leading me to Treasure after Treasure. Thoughts of Peace were prevalent within my Mind as I meandered throughout that forest. Once those thoughts formed they eagerly joined Universal…

More To Come

Highway to 5th Heaven

Friends, ever since the clocks have been turned back an hour, time seems to have sped up to double time. Bare with me as I get more of my Autumn pictures edited and posts put together to publish here. In addition to complicate matters, new has arrived in my life and by the time 3pm rolls around, you can most likely find me on the couch spent. Between 3-6pm is usually my time to sit down to put posts together. Has anyone other then me noticed how fast it is going? November just started and here it is the 22nd already! How did that happen?

This post is just a heads up notice that I have more delightful colors coming your way. Comments are closed on this small sampling of what I have for you. I will not be blogging either except if I have any outstanding comments from my…

Gifts For Dad For 2021

1954 An era of subtlety, the 1950s was not, as evidenced by these Cutter Cravat artist originals. Frankly, it’s difficult to interpret what the patterns actually were. We have words for argyle and houndstooth and checkered, but these are littered with sprigs and swirls in bold (and often clashing) colors. What man dare sport the […]

Afterlife

After tidying up the kitchen, I had an out-of-body experience. Unbeknownst to me, while I was clearing the dishes and emptying the garbage bins, T tidied up the entire living room. The tornado debris of his Hot Wheels and blocks were all cleared into bins. I had almost forgotten we had brown carpet underneath. When […]

La piqûre royale

We have had a right old rigmarole this year with Louis Catorze’s booster vaccination. He was due to have it in September but, because he needed an antibiotic shot after his dental surgery, he couldn’t have the booster in the same appointment, as planned. Then supplies of the vaccine ran out, with replenishments not due […]

. My state has a vaccination rate of 80% for eligible citizens for which I am quite grateful. I do however, relate to good ole Mona a little more than I did in the past. . . Global plagues are Hell on the waistline. . . And it won’t be that far from the truth. […]

Sky Ink

Some say we’re all star dust and I get it now, how we’re set by the exquisite geometry of constellations Flowers built around the houses of exacting pentagons or an eagle’s flight feathers their sprayed precision, the acute explosion of wattle blossom tendrils, or my own hand, its splayed fingers and the triangles between. Water’s […]
