Gravity (2013): George Clooney and Sandra Bullock

Gravity is a deeply moving film focusing on the survival of two people George Clooney, Matt  Kowalski, an astronaut, and Sandra Bullock, a medical engineer, Ryan Stone.  The visual effects from space are utterly breathtaking and at the same time terrifying.    The story revolves around a mishap by floating space junk which separates both Matt and Ryan from the outside of the shuttle, while in the process of fixing a problem.   The tale spins out of control with the main goal of survival.   The crazy and harrowing efforts to get back to land are bone chilling.  The images of the earth, the deafening silence except for breathing and their own words combined with the will to live keeps the audience on edge. 

The film is an expose on how the human condition chooses to survive a horrific or challenging event where all that one has is wits, memories of others and the will to find a winning path against the elements.  Additionally, Gravity, reminds us that we are all just a grain of sand in comparison to the enormity of space.  Scuba drivers most likely have the same feelings when beneath the ocean and it is just themselves versus the sea or mountain climbers knowing that one misstep can end everything. More importantly, the film is about life, death and coming to terms with the life one creates on Earth.   The effect you have on others is profound and the choices made in life are all that matters.   The universe is huge, vast, beautiful and simply beyond comprehension.   The quest for survival, remembering loved ones of the past and present plus the essence of life when caught floating in space is blaring loud.  Gravity is one movie not to be missed.  Afterwards, you will want to go outside and touch the ground, hug your loved ones and be kind and graceful to all mankind on this plant called Earth.

We usually see other friends and spread the word on what is hot.  No doubt, the year 2020 will be one for the history books.  
If someone had told me in 2019, that everything I love in life would be halted because of a pandemic in 2020, I would have thought not possible.  As we all know, when the virus appeared, every…

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - Take Three - Jeans & Tops

The Perfect Combination


Since we no longer are attending events that we enjoyed in 2019, our needs for formal wear is not a priority this year.  However, I do believe in dressing up daily with a flattering top or a bit of color for a lift of hope and cheer.  What I have found refreshing as of late, is the ability to visit restaurants and eat outdoors.  Everyone seems upbeat, happy and joyous to be participating in the simpler thrills of life.  The women have taken time to look lovely and are sporting pretty clothes.  After all, our beautiful pieces are just waiting to be worn.  
Additionally, the new norm for most is working from the home, which is a significant change for everyone. Thus, a great pair of jeans and a beautiful top will look and make you feel professional.  It is important to dress for success even if you are in your office or at the kitchen table.  Fix your hair, put on your makeup, and add accessories.  Why not look your best?  You are a powerful woman.  Anyone in busin…
