If you have consciously or serendipitiously arrived here, welcome. I’m Fran, aka Redondowriter, and my interests include family, friends, writing, reading, art, computers, storytelling, spirituality, photography, animals—and exploring the layers of everyday life.
I have been busy at work all week and busy every evening with an event, so the blog fell by the way side.
I did take time out tonight to watch "Finding Amanda," a very dark and cynical comedy about addictions from 2008 starring Matthew Broderick. I never even heard of this film before and in the beginning I thought I'd picked a loser. Not so. The acting was terrific and the script really hit me in the solar plexus, when I wasn't groaning or laughing. It's not for the faint-hearted, especially if you've watched people you love spin out into alcohol, drugs and gambling. The depiction of Vegas was eerily accurate as I've experienced it.
But, now it's time to tuck in with a book for the night. Cookie, by the way, is doing well, a day at a time, I'm happy to report.
