Tree Bark Blues, just slightly

Really it takes so little to go from blue skies to tree bark, vacation to I need a vacation in one short stretch. (Although I do think tree bark is quite lovely on its own but not as a life condition).

Note: photos from our visit to the Eric Carle Museum in Massachusetts up on Library Mermaid.

Meanwhile, a gal pal and I went to see Julie & Julia, a movie we greatly enjoyed. I am a HUGE fan of Julia Child. I remember her early cooking shows, a dropped chicken, her passion for what she loved, her ability to overcome. "The only real stumbling block is fear of failure. In cooking you've got to have a 'What the hell?' attitude." As well as in a great many other things.

I also read the book the movie is titled after and thought it was terrific - Julie Powell, another gal who keeps on keeping on. My kind of people.

Wasn't the movie fun! I went yesterday.

I am amazed by the number of folks in the blogosphere who think that Julie Powell is whiny and annoying both in print and on the screen.

I agree with you. She looked life in the face, greeted it with a snarky sense of humor, and wasn't afraid to take a risk. Maybe all these bloggers are jealous their blogs won't become bestsellers and be turned into popular films.
