“There’s a difference between saying we’re not going to live up to other people’s expectations and actually not living up to them,” a friend said to me one day.

Once again, The Mister and I watched all of the Best Picture nominees and quite a few other nominees. I haven’t forgotten that I owe y’all–and myself–some of the 2015 movies that got snubbed. I will get there. Eventually.

There’s so much I love about where I live but feeling the energy of a rough sea captures something, some feeling that seems to be deep rooted. I’m sure there are a lot of people who are the same.
