I had the opportunity to visit the Planetarium with my son. And though I've been there a few times, our universe never fails to amaze me. During our visit we took a visit to Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. We visited our moon and several other planet's moons. We visited Enceladus, a moon that spits out water and ice into space. Our lives are so busy with our daily functions. Sometimes we fail to enjoy today and instead worry about tomorrow. Life is a gift. So take the time to enjoy today. And when the night settles in, take a look up into the sky. Our planet is so unique to support life. All the necessary ingredients are in place. It is a miracle in itself. I am pleased God allowed me to be a part of it.

too well. Dismayed when his wife’s art begins to sell, Walter claims her
artwork as his own, basking in his what
should have been his wife’s glory. The eccentric Walter soon hits payday as
the paintings, posters and postcards craze begins. But poor Margaret is left
out of the limelight, resentful and frustrated by her husband’s lies. Things
only spiral after that in what leads to a heated showdown between husband and
Based on a
true story, BIG EYES is a wonderful
drama with a few laughs in between. Margaret is an exceptional character, who
one can only root for. As much as you want to hate Walter, you can’t help but
smile at his quirky character and his sinister charm.
BIG EYES is a great movie, well written and
Go see it.
