did you ever used to customize your KEDS sneakers? draw on them and then your friends would draw on them, write notes or sign their name? i did. i wish i still had them....those and my cropped black denim jacket (with a light stone wash) that i used to wear daily, and by the time i retired it it had about 50 buttons that i'd pinned all over it.
im feeling nostalgic....

"Today, like every other day, we wake up empty
and frightened. Don't open the door to the study
and begin reading. Take down a musical instrument.
Let the beauty we love be what we do.
There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground."

and another film, recommended by my folks that we cant wait to see is Trouble The Water, a documentary about Katrina, as experienced by a married couple in New Orleans who caught the first day of the storm on camera & follows them as they live through the aftermath. It's only playing for another week or so at the Sunset 5 Laemmle theatre & the Laemmle Playhouse 7 in Pasadena.
my husband and i watched another absolutely beautiful film last night called We Are Together. Its a documentary (showing on HBO) about the Agape Children's Choir in South Africa. The film follows the lives of these children who have all lost their parents to AIDS, & their crisis and victory while living in a small orphanage together. so incredibly moving and uplifting and infuriating and inspiring at the same time.
