What nominee is most deserving of an Oscar?

lt sueMatthew  McConaughey for Dallas Buyers Club. I never appreciated his work before but I found him very credible and just enjoyed the role.

Sandra Bullock is deserving of an Oscar for Gravity. She's a fantastic actress, she's been in the game for a while, and she works really hard.

lt meganKristin Scott Thomas as The Invisible Woman because she was just frickin amazing the way that she decided to become invisible, and then realized that she could not live a live of invisibility. She figured it out. It was kind of a painful way, but she learned that she was never going to be number one in Charles Dickens’ life.

lt harleighLeonardo DiCaprio, Wolf of Wall Street. Extreme Bacchanalia of drugs, alcohol, cheating people out. People loved the movie, and perhaps even loving the bad wolf of Wall Street himself. Always an enjoyment, always a treat to see Dicapio, Wolf of Wall Street  was one of the best films I've seen all year. Good luck, Leonardo!

Heart Me Up

In defense of Valentine’s Day

 

“be(ing) of love (a little) more careful”—e.e. cummings

Wednesday (Feb. 10) is Ash Wednesday, when Lent begins. Friday (Feb. 12) is Lincoln’s 207th birthday. Sunday is Valentine’s Day. On Ash Wednesday, with foreheads marked with a cross of ashes, we hear the words, “From dust thou art and unto dust thou shalt return.” Reminding us that our bodies, made of matter, will remain here on Earth when we are called back. It is our Soul that will take us home again. Lent offers us 40 days and nights of purification in preparation for the Resurrection (Easter) festival (an initiation) and for the Three Spring Festivals (at the time of the full moon)—Aries, Taurus, Gemini. The New Group of World Servers have been preparing since Winter Solstice. The number 40 is significant. The Christ (Pisces World Teacher) was in the desert for 40 days and 40 nights prior to His three-year ministry. The purpose of this desert exile was to prepare his Archangel (light) body to withstand the pressures of the Earth plane (form and matter). We, too, in our intentional purifications and prayers during the 40 days of Lent, prepare ourselves (physical body, emotions, lower mind) to receive and be able to withstand the irradiation of will, love/wisdom and light streaming into the Earth at spring equinox, Easter, and the Three Spiritual Festivals. What is Lent? The Anglo-Saxon word, lencten, comes from an ancient spring festival, agricultural rites marking the transition between winter and summer. The seasons reflect changes in nature (physical world) and humanity responds with social festivals of gratitude and of renewal. There is a purification process, prayerfulness in nature and in humanity in preparation for a great flow of spiritual energies during springtime. Valentine’s Day: Aquarius Sun, Taurus moon. Let us offer gifts of comfort, ease, harmony, beauty and satisfaction. Things chocolate and golden. Venus and Taurus things.
