the raven

So I went as saw The Raven yesterday, I must say I thoroughly enjoyed it. Of course I had high expectations because; let's be serious, when you take the works of Edgar Allan Poe and put it in a movie you better do a good job. I loved the dialogue and the whole take on the possibilities of what his last days were. I think I enjoyed it more than other people but it was definitely my kind of movie. Not to mention John Cusack as Poe, who would have thought?! But he does a great job.
My favorite story was saved for last. I wish I could talk about it but I think it would give something away. So if you haven't seen it, go see it!!
   
On another note. I feel like writers from the past are quickly being forgotten by todays society. Which actually makes me kind of sad. Some of the BEST writers and stories come from the the 1800's-early 1900's. The vocabulary and the ability to describe in so much detail. sigh* Of course if you are not used to the dialogue you have to work up to it but it is so worth the work. NO the movies are not the same.

Love this! written by Tanya Amidei

Public Declaration; I NO longer believe in falling/being in love: As I was walking to work this morning I was convicted and reproved for ignorantly believing that I could "fall in love". Love is NOT something you fall into; this pulsing truth wouldn't silence. Now, you can imagine how I felt as the conviction in my heart arose; slightly defensive because certainly I've been defining love properly, right? So, I decided that it was my responsibility to pierce into the Word of my Father, and search to see if this concept of "falling in love" or "being in love" is something that I should indeed attach my life to. Now, it was to my surprise that this concept of emotional intoxication that motivates the lips to part and the tongue to say "I'm in love" is NOWHERE to be found! In fact, as I dug into research I found that this concept; the one I've been guilty of co-signing my name to, is nothing more than lust. Lust is built on what the …
