Armed and Dangerous!

For a few days last November I was armed and dangerous. Why? Because I attended an amazing two day Firearms and Fiction workshop sponsored by the Second Amendment Foundation. (That's me at right, firing a machine gun - woo-hoo!) What the experience taught me (besides the fact that yes, if threatened I *would* pull the trigger) is that working outside your comfort zone is very important. It stretches us, teaches us, and helps us evolve. I challenge you to try something completely out of your comfort zone this month and report back. I'd love to hear about your adventures!

This afternoon I took an adventure to China. Well, sort of. :-) I went to see "The Painted Veil" with Edward Norton and Naomi Watts. This movie filled my heart. The scenery was breathtaking, the story fabulous, but most importantly, the acting was amazing. Edward Norton has to be one of the most talented actors of our time.

Okay, must do my chores so I can be ready to watch The Golden Globes. Who are you rooting for this year?

  1. Pat--Wow, that workshop sounds awesome. Great picture!

    BTW, I really like your website with the two sides of the heart. What a cool idea.
