Escape from Tomorrow (2013)

Escape from Tomorrow
is the absurdist story of a father’s mental breakdown while on a trip to Walt Disney World with his family.  In the opening moments of the film, our protagonist Jim White is on his last day of vacation at the Disney resort and is enjoying the morning on the balcony of the family’s hotel room.  682 more words

Lavender & ferns

I’ve had lavender on my mind for a while, and souffles. I recently snagged a copy of the very traditional Fannie Farmer cookbook from the early 1950s and thought I’d sprinkle a little lavender water in a souffle (perfume maker and herbalist Julianne Zaleta of Alchemologie has a beautiful one.) My husband’s dislike of lavender is hardly a deterrent for me, nor is the somewhat soapy lavender ice cream I made when we were first married (lavender can notoriously go a bit awry if used to excess.) Strangely, these little hiccups have only made me want to experiment and learn how to draw out lavender’s earthly charms with more subtlety. 672 more words

American Beauty (1999)

Look closer. This is the tagline of Sam Mendes’ 1999 Academy Award winner, rated 12th out of 50 on IMDb’s ranking of most popular feature films of the 90s, and it’s not hard to see why. 318 more words
