I enjoy bringing together music, writings and research about topics that I find interesting. I like to share images of my artwork and write about what inspires me. Telling stories about Coco, my Akita Service Dog is one of my favorite things to do. And now and then, I write about what it is like to go through life with a Traumatic Brain Injury and PTSD. These are the breadcrumbs that lead me back to a frame of mind or concept that would otherwise be forgotten.

Life of Pi ~ Review
watched the movie, "The Life of Pi," over the weekend. It was
brilliantly filmed and Director, Ang Lee did not disappoint. The story
was intriguing and I am going to want to watch this film a few more
times because it was rich in metaphors about humanity, the connectedness
of all things, including suffering and survival and how we choose to
perceive these changes in our lives and our awareness of life.
The star of the film, Suraj Sharma, was engaging and convincing. The
acting of the interviewer was a tad weak. But acceptable. The true
jewel of this film however, was an actor I had not seen before, Irrfan
Khan. He is one of the best actors I have ever seen. He didn't steal
my heart, I gladly gave it to him. I was enraptured by his tale and the
heart he so willingly gave in his performance. Irrfan Kahn is from
Jaipur, India. After graduating from the National School of Drama he
moved to Mumbai in 1987. The writer Yann Martel and the screen writer,
David Magee did a great job. Great job. But being completely drawn
into where they wanted me to go.... that was all Irrfan.
