love revisited

I believe in love. I believe God has a hand in it. I believe it's virtually unpredictable. It happens. I'm here to tell you that it happens.

My adult imagination....

Is it wrong to want to believe in Sea Monkeys?

I know they do exist as a sort of brine shrimp
but I much prefer to imagine them as happy alien-like families with agreeable personalities.

I whole-heartedly believe a little fantasy is 
necessary in life, especially when death and 
financially difficult times hit. 

Look at their long toes & dorky smiles.

Gracias a Dios

I don't believe in coincidences. I believe God narrates these pages of our existence. Our lives are the best stories ever created:  all of them  layered with foreshadowing, sorrow, the return of people from years past, success and fuckloads of joy.

I don't believe it's easy to walk through the shitty times. Waiting perturbs me.

Voy a ver Lola Montes con Esteban.

I believe Lola Montes will rock me like a hurricane.  I'll be back later to update you on the aftermath.

Your Grandma: Life Objectives, Part II

I believe my third life objective is to be a kiss-ass grandma. I'm no knitter but I know tacos & delight in painting little finger nails.

Film crunch

I believe there are a plethora of excellent movies to see 
in NYC this long weekend. In fact, I think there are too many great films to see.

Film Forum is showing Godard's 2 or 3 things I know about her. This is a *must-see.*

Tangentially speaking, the au naturale popcorn decorated with Baleine sea salt at Film Forum is such nifty hipster snack.

The MoMa always has amazing foreign films. Last night I saw The Flower Bridge and today I have a ticket to see Shadow of the Holy Book, a Finnish film. 

Over at IFC, they're showing Gommorah. I can't wait to see that either. I've added an already hackneyed image of it for you. (You get it: semi-naked guys with guns & muddy sneakers.)

I believe the most titillating film among all these is Serbis. Down to the Angelika I go to see this Filipino flick. (By the way, if you tell me Filipino is not one of those words you have to double check the spelling of a dozen times, I'll never believe a word out of your mouth again!) 

I believe we should all vote on an amendment to add three more hours to every weekend day.
Check yes or no.

Life Objectives

I believe I have about four major life objectives. 

I don't feel the need to rank them in any sort of order. One objective is to live in South America long enough to need a visa. Another objective is to make someone a U.S citizen through marriage. (I know, the person who doesn't believe in love is spouting off on marriage.)

I don't know who I'll make a citizen: Be he a Canuck, a Mexican, a Chilean, or an Italian. 

Welcome to the land of Starbucks, Obama, Hollywood and Wall Street.
