Moments in time …

Moments in time …

Snow on the morning of March 3, 2014

New York City has been sparred the brunt of a huge snow storm system that has hit a lot of other places across the country pretty hard. We count ourselves lucky on that one and otherwise cling to the notion that Spring really is a mere few weeks away.

Elsewhere in the world individuals breathe a sigh of relief or cringe at what may befall them next. Certainly friends in Ukraine and Russia must be going through a myriad of emotions and fear as they sit on the brink of another of the world’s conflagrations in Crimea–the site of so much suffering in a prior war well over 150 years ago. Having been in places during times of strife, I can attest to the strangeness of going about one’s business while across town people are confronted with guns.

Lupita Nyongo'o Best Actress 2014, APWatching the Oscars last night along with some billion others on the planet was a moment to savor fantasy and dreams as pretty men and pretty ladies adorned the images in pretty clothes, dripping with pretty jewels.

How marvelous that we could all take a collective time out from our troubles to savor Pink in pink and Ellen hocking the rich and powerful for pizza money.

Best of all were the wins and none more than lovely Lupita Nyong’o whose speech was uplifting and full of hope. “When I look down at this golden statue, may it remind me and every child, no matter where you’re from, your dreams are valid,” she said.

That is something to savor on a Monday morning when besnowed or not, troubled or fantastically happy, we chase our best selves as Matthew McConaughey implored us to do.

May all your wishes come true.

Congratulations to “The Fighter” for their fantastic Oscar Wins!

The Fighter has come away a winner at the Oscars!  This well-written portrayal of Micky Ward’s rise to boxing acclaim is a heartfelt story about a family in crisis.  This wonderful film is a stirring retelling of the boxing parable of redemption and well worth the price of admission.

Best Supporting Actress – Melissa Leo for her portrayal of Alice Ward
