Team Member C movie night: “The Last Word”
I adore Shirley MacLaine. Inspiring movie about embracing fear of failure, fear of making mistakes, and fear itself … from my point of view. Quote from the movie, “Don’t have a nice day. Have a day that matters. Have a day that’s direct. Have a day that’s honest.” -Harriet

Thomas says, “I like it, it was good, and I like the music.”
Lillian says, “Musical, my favorite characters are the two ladies, good for Christmas and any other holiday like 4th of July.”
I say, “Enjoy watching this with Thomas and Lillian.”
December 22 2018:
Team Member C movie night. Lillian is spending the weekend with The Romano Duo and Thomas is doing his own thang.
“Leonie” – Wonderfully inspiring and true story of Isamu Noguchi’s Mother, Leonie Gilmour.
Quotes from the movie –
“I studied so that I might express the joy and pain and profundity of being human. That’s what poetry does. Does it not? That’s what I wish to learn. No school can teach it – how to take what is at the deepest level of the soul and put it on a piece of paper..” – Leonie Gilmour in interviewing to be editor for Yone Noguchi’s novel, “An American Diary of a Japanese Girl”
“You’re art will be your weapon, you’re art will be your voice. There are no boundaries for an artist. No borders. Through art, you can speak all languages and lead a magnificent life anywhere.” -Spoken by Leonie to her son, Isamu.
“I wonder sometimes. Why was I so greedy in my youth. I now find beauty in simple existence. In abandoning all worldly desires. Just like a tree. Or a stone.” -Leonie Gilmour
