Review of Harriet

I saw the movie; Harriet, Harriet Tubman was one of my heros growing up here is my review; https://rismovieblog.wordpress.com/2019/11/23/harriet/ via @wordpressdotco

Book Review;

When I was in college I studied under a professor who was good friends with His Holiness, so when he came to the US, he spoke to our class. Our class was a senior class so it was tiny, “The Peoples Of India,” and our professor got some amazing speakers. So we were all excited to meet the Dalai Lama, but we thought of it as part of our class and no one was awe struck, as I heard from people who saw him at UCLA later during that same trip.

The man was a kind, with a beautiful smile, a great sense of humor and who explained his religion and the difficulties his people were having with China. He was real, down to earth, extremely knowledgeable and a delight. I really liked him and his brother who was his translator (though His Holiness spoke English very well.) They were both lovely and I have held that meeting as dear all these years later.

This book is a series of questions and answers, it is very interesting and gives a thorough understanding of Buddhism Beliefs for the layman such as myself. I really found it very thorough and interesting. But what I was missing in it was a sense of the person being interviewed. It was not all the dimensions of a brilliant man, and that did disturb me. But I learned a lot and found the little book most enlightening.

I love the show; My Life is Murder https://rismovieblog.wordpress.com/2019/11/06/my-life-is-murder/ I have been a fan of Lucy Lawless since the Xena days following her career, going to cons and going to singing performances, she is such a talented lady! I really hope this show is renewed!

Book Reviews;

 

Well, I had read all the Miss Marple books in this volume before, but the first thing that struck me was that the order of the books made no sense. The Mirror Crack’d first, makes no sense at all, since the volume includes The Body in the Library which came first. What Mrs. McGillicudy Saw was also set and written before the first book. I am not sure what the publishers were thinking.

 

The stories are all brilliant and I enjoyed re-reading the books. I always enjoy Miss Marple and reading these books I found I forgotten parts or replaced them in my mind with adaptions in TV or movies.

 

The one I enjoyed a lot and forgotten the most was Nemesis. I think I had read the book once or twice but I had completely replaced it in my mind with the adaptions which all have a nephew accompanying her but in the book she went alone. And the Professor was far more involved in the story then in the adaptions.

 

I know that one stop shops are not really that popular because of the order the books are placed but it is also a way to have several of one of your favorite authors at your fingertips. So I do recommend it.

Poetry- Broken

 

Broken — by Sherri Rabinowitz

Broken like a bird with a broken wing

Even a missing feather

The poor little thing can't fly

I feel broken

Alone

Unloved

Not able to fly

I am the bird with the broken wing

Broken Alone

Poetry

Spirit of a Dandelion Petal

 
— Sherri Rabinowitz

Such a pretty flower,

It looks like any other,

But when one blows gently,

It flies apart, sensationally!

 

You want to cry,

It is a tragedy, but no, as you see the petals part,

you give an amazed start!

Because each petal is itself,

an individual,

whole and complete,

a dream like spirit that

flies its own path.

 

Each petal is an angel of beauty,

Fluttering in its own very short flight,

to freedom.

Poem published on Flapper Press

 

Hear My Voice

 

Hear my voice!

I cry out;

Die to be heard;

Drowned out by the

Reasoned and unreasonable;

Male and female;

Demanding I change my thoughts

To their own;

I am denied my voice!

My creativity!

My feelings!

Myself!

—Sherri Rabinowitz
