As I once again read some of my early blog entries from several months ago I have to admit—in front of God and everybody—that I am almost embarrassed by some of the grammar I encountered.
I began blogging just as I was coming off a long period of not feeling appreciated by those I was in relationship with and jumped right into the pool and I guess—by what I saw today—never looked back. It was almost painful for me to navigate through the mis-spellings and truncated sentences and otherwise stream of concsiousness type of stuff I am so prone to.
My writing has become much better and you don’t have to wade through as much stuff to get to the meat of what I am trying to convey today as you did several months ago. Thanks for sticking with me.
Sandi and I took some time last week to attend a movie priemier for “The List” which is based on a book by Robert Whitlow of the same name. It was the world premier in Charlotte, NC and of course the theatre was packed with cast and crew and all of us invitee’s. It was directed by a friend of ours Gary Wheeler and is a good beginning to what will hopefully be a long career in making movies. It is Christian themed at a time in history when people are looking for something more than what they see in everyday life. It is about the power of people praying yet is done in such a way that it doesn’t seem like a Christian movie about the power of prayer.
It stars Malcom Mc Dowell, Hilary Burton (One Tree Hill) and Chuck Carrington (JAG) and has a scene with Will Patton (Armagendon). It is not cheesy and thrown together but is of the same stature as the “End of the Spear” movie about the missionaries that were killed in the jungles of Ecuador in 1956. Not quite as hollywood but professionally done, well acted and great cinematography.
It may take a while to come to Boone but hopefully will show up, if not in a big theatre, at least the little indy theatre that is being built across from the Wellness Center here in Boone. I was talking with the indy theatre owner at the Farmer’s Market on Saturday and she said that the theatre may open in the fall. More about that later.
So—if you get a chance before that—do take time to see the movie—you will be glad that you did.
