Last night, my daughter’s hard work in chorus saw fruition as they performed at the Fine Arts Night program. Students played the violin, piano, electric guitar, harp, flute and several students sang, beautifully. Student artwork was displayed around the room – wow, can some of these students create some beautiful stuff or what. I was proud to be associated with an organization that is dedicated to preserving and displaying beauty in a time when a lot of what we hear and see is not beautiful.

New Song on my Playlist
I’ve added “Untitled Hymn” by Chris Rice. I love this song. Last night, I attended the Fine Arts Night of our homeschool group. A recent graduate danced to this song. It was very beautiful. I hope it encourages you.
Musings about Ryan Gosling
He stars in a movie called Lars and the Real Girl. LATRG wasn’t bad, exactly. It’s just the second movie I have watched starring Mr. Gosling and I have realized that he must choose his movie scripts based on the following criteria:
1. I don’t have to say many words. As few as possible.
2. I have lots of opportunities to make great facial expressions and express my innermost thoughts just through the contortions of my face.
The other movie was one where he played a teacher who was a drug addict.
So, even though LATRC had some sweet parts and a relatively good story, the acting wasn’t great, the movie was kind of weird, and you had to wait a long, long time to get to the resolution of the movie.
My First Movie Review: Lars and the Real Girl
Don’t watch it.
