American pie

I watched "Waitress" this afternoon. Several Kleenex® were used. It deals with the issues of love, awakening, gifts and talents, and the decisions we make about our lives. The poignancy of this charming little story is felt not only because the story is so sweet but because the actress/writer/director Andrienne Shelly, who plays Dawn, a sort of ditzy woman with a heart of gold, was murdered on the eve of this charming film's debut. What a terrible loss. I recommend it whole heartedly.

More on recent travels later, including pictures.

Yes, a gem of a movie! "Recount" comes out on DVD tomorrow if you missed it first go-round...
