Rent an old house on a shore and live where your heart runs free
I didn’t even recognize the well-known actress in this until the very end of the trailer – and I don’t want to give it away so will leave you to watch this. But – glorious. Every bit of this is achingly real and a reflection of so many of the realities of the world we live in, from the brokenness and yet necessity of the foster care system, to how our loved ones fail us over and over sometimes, to how your parents can be your enemy, to the destructive nature of drugs and ongoing poverty, to the flashes of hope that filter through the system sometimes, mostly, always, through individuals.
Yes. I am watching this.
Something about the clear chemistry between the couple in this picture just gets me.
Electricity and laughter. Don’t settle for less in a relationship.
James Rhodes: Find What You Love and Let it Kill You. What if, rather than paying £70 a month for a gym membership that delights in making you feel fat, guilty and a world away from the man your wife married you bought a few blank canvases and some paints and spent time each day painting your version of “I love you” until you realized that any woman worth keeping would jump you then and there just for that, despite your lack of a six-pack?” (RT The Guardian)
Noisy Courtship, Quiet Breakup: Jets Dump Tebow. “Tebow, to a degree, is not exempt from culpability. It was he, after all, who chose to accept the trade to the Jets rather than play for Jacksonville, where he was reared. But Tebow could not have predicted what awaited him in New York. The former special-teams coordinator Mike Westhoff, in a memorable radio interview after the season, called the Jets’ mishandling of Tebow “a mess, it was an absolute mess.” (RT NYT)
Update on Save Saeed: Letter Says Iran Release Depends on Abedini Renouncing Faith.”In a letter obtained by the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), Abedini—a U.S. citizen of Iranian descent—wrote that he was told by Iranian prison officials, “Deny your faith in Jesus Christ and return to Islam or else you will not be released from prison. We will make sure you are kept here even after your 8 year sentence is finished” (RT Christianity Today)
The State of Music 2013. “Everything is getting so niche-market and pulling us apart. You don’t have to listen to what everybody else listens to. You can find your own thing. If your thing is tribal beats, you can listen to tribal beats all the time, and it doesn’t matter whether or not the radio plays it.” (RT Relevant)
