This Blog Has Moved!

I moved my blog on New Years Day, 2010. If you haven't come to see my new blog, head on over HERE now. This blog will be available for archive reading but I won't be posting here anymore. I hope you'll join me at my new bloggy home!

p.s. I am slowly but surely moving all the blogs I follow over to the new blog, so if I haven't come to visit you for a while, my advice is to leave a comment on my new blog, so I don't miss you in the shuffle!

About Me

My photo
I am a bereaved mother and wife. I began this blog to help me look for the "good things" in life after my daughter, "Babybear", died in July 2005. Three years later, her daddy, my husband, "Bear", died in November 2008. (You'll find a link to their stories on my blog) And now, as difficult as it is, I continue to look for the good things in my life as I learn my new normal with my pup, "Furrybear", at my side. And the angels on my shoulder...

Movie Review: Brokeback Mountain

Brokeback Mountain - staring Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger.

Ennis (Ledger) and Jack (Gyllenhaal) are two cowboys who meet on Brokeback Mountain while herding sheep one summer in the 1960's.

One cold night, while trying to stay warm, they are surprised to find their relationship turning physical.

When the season ends, they part ways, figuring they will not see each other again. They soon begin to realize that their feelings for each other are not purely physical, nor a result of isolation, and they begin an affair that spans over two decades.

This movie focuses on the love story between Ennis and Jack, and how they are kept apart by society's view of homosexuality in the 1960's.

If you like love stories, or cowboys, then this movie is for you.

I've never seen it, I think it would be too sad for me. I was very sad when I read the short story that it came from.

I put that movie on my Netflix queue not long ago. I had been putting off renting it only because I knew its overall theme was sad, but I really do want to see it.
