Just some thoughts

I watched Blood Diamond on DVD the other night. It wasn't entirely what I expected from the commercials. I was expecting more adventure, I guess. Don't get me wrong, there was plenty of adventure as well as poignant drama--and the acting was just amazing. I wasn't disappointed just surprised.

Leonardo DiCaprio and Djimon Hounsou really went beyond acting. I totally believed they were their characters. Jennifer Connelly did really great in a supporting role. It's quite easy to see why the movie garnered a number of Oscar nominations. The morality tale aspect was very evident also.

Work this week has been torture. Which is why I've not been posting very much. I've been getting to the point that by 11am I just want to hide! Maybe next week will be better...

Instead of writing anything else I'm just going to post a picture of a yellow Canna Lily flower that I thought was quite pretty when I saw it last week. I hope you like it. If you want to get the full effect, click on it for the full size version.

Thanks for the ID on that flower, Bernie. I didn't know what it was.
