Welcome to my new and improved Blog.

I decided it was time for a change!

I write this Blog for me, no one else, just me. It is a way to think outloud, and to share my experiences with the world. Maybe some will be interested and some will not, and who knows, I might figure something out myself. I will talk about whatever comes to my mind, and sometimes it is hard for me to do, but I will do it anyway.

I enjoy photography so you will see a lot of my work. I love to read and you will see quotes from my favorite authors. Generally follow my life as try to obtain my undergrad in Art History and English at Carleton University.

Please read, enjoy and comment, open disscussion is welcome.

The Glass Menagerie

Miranda's play "The Glass Menagerie" by Tennesse Williams Opened last night at Heritage CEGEP.
I couldn't say enough about it.
So I won't.
Pictures say it better.
They are grainy becasue I took them at a high ISO so I wouldn't need the flash.
It kinda suits the era I figure. Tonight I hope to be abit closer to get better pictures.
I couldn't have been more prouder of Miranda and her performance. It was so totally different from who she is. She pulled it off Magificently! And so did the others of the cast. And that is not just a Mother talking. Listening to others talking after they were blown away by it!

Jim gets Laura to Dance
Shall we dance?

Jim about to Kiss Laura
Jim telling Laura how beautiful she is.

When this kiss happened a bunch of the girls in the audience went Ahhhhhhhh! Which made Miranda and Matt very happy because it came across with the desired effect.

The last scene where Tom is talking about why he left and how the guilt of leaving Laura follows him, had the whole Audience in tears...yes me too. I was so mesmerized I didn't take a shot.

So If your in the area the next 3 nights...GO.
