Black Swan (2010): Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis, Vincent Cassel
Black Swan is a disturbing psychological thriller based on a ballerina's physically and mentally gruelling role in the ballet - The White Swan. Portman, won an Oscar for Best Actress in 2010 for this movie. The portrayal of Princess Odette, White Swan, is brilliant along with the pirouette into insanity by becoming the Black Swan. The film is deeply twisted and darkly meshed with jealousy, betrayal, lust, self loathing and a crazy parent with a few typical Hollywood movie scenes. Not uplifting or for the faint of heart.
PASS! Unless enjoyment is found wallowing in dreary and depressing stories about dysfunctional personalities. Seeing The White Swan at a ballet theatre seems more promising.

Spice of Life What does it take to being flexible on the road of life especially when change is at an all time high? Well, for many the simple task of walking will transform the body and mind thus ingraining a "flexible mindset". Of course, put your phone away or keep on silent. Allow yourself to hear your own thoughts and unleash your creative side or solve issues. During the last year and a half, I have been walking with my husband and friends. We have discovered new places, trails, wildlife, foliage, and forged friendships. We have been accepting, evolving and creating new elements in our lives. Along the journey, we have all strengthened our bodies and fueled our minds with conversation while admiring nature and embracing connection. We became flexible with what we were able to do on a daily basis. Throughout the Covid 19 pandemic, we have had an opportunity to get off the hamster wheel and adjust our lives accordingly. For some, the adjustment was hard, and
Just Say It Isn't So! "I wish I had invented blue jeans. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity- all I hope for in my clothes." Yves Saint Laurent "Mom Jeans" are making a powerful comeback in 2021. I remember women wearing "Mom Jeans" in the day and am stunned that women are slipping down this road again. The term "Mom Jeans" originated in the in the late 1980's and early 1990's. They were worn by mom's and considered unhip by the youth. A friend of mine recently asked, "What exactly are Mom Jeans?" Typically, "Mom Jeans" are higher waisted than the high waist style, often in a light denim wash, creating a longer and flatter hind end. There is extra fabric throughout and can emphasize a pouch if you have one. The fit is snug at the waist, sometimes with a waist band with a loose and unfitted leg. Think of pajama pants only with extra fabric at the top. The next requirement is to
