Today, I have much to be grateful for. Not only was it a generally awesome day at work, but we had some great company with our relatives. I got to talk to my brother and my sister, from three thousand miles away, and connected with some important loved ones. There is something growing, something simmering, and I can feel it.

Today, the world is just right. Everything is perfect. Today is like yesterday, is like tomorrow. Today is good, as everyday is good. I have been meditating on beauty and love, and the production of beauty and love, to continue on with the generations. I have been praying and closing my eyes to the universe for some well wishes and love. And today, like no other, I got a response.

The Mist

November 5th, 2007 | No Comments | Posted in headlines

There’s this new movie coming out, called “The Mist,” by the infamous Stephen King. His books and his movies always scare me half to bits. They’re so threatening, and his imagination can often make my skin crawl and my spine itch. This one doesn’t look like an exception. It’s about this weird mist that encapsulates everyone in its wake, leaving people to depend on each other for help and security, and turning them against one another.

While I was never stuck in a supernatural/odd mist-type situation in my life, I was in a position that made me question what I really knew about my coworkers and people I thought I could trust. A desperate situation can often change people and they become who they truly are. Panic moments make people become their true selves, and you finally get to see who you can trust, who you should never trust. It was an awakening experience for me, and I hope that I never have to go through that type of situation again. It disappointed me to find out who I thought were lifelong friends were not even mere acquaintances. It takes a scary situation to see who your real friends are.

I can’t wait to see The Mist by Stephen King. I think it puts an interesting spin on human nature and how we each see the world. Not just that, but seeing as how it’s by Stephen King, it’s bound to be creepy and weird, too! Eek! It’s coming out November 21st — just ready for us when we come back from our honeymoon!
