You All Need To Watch This Movie

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

Every once in a while I stumble across either a good book or movie that I need to pass a long to each of you. Today I rented a movie - from the library - free - entitled "Things we lost in the fire" - staring Halle Barry. It is the kind of move that speaks to individuals who have lost a loved one particularly someone who has lost their mate.

It is a movie that deals with grief, death and dying - as well as addiction - and the emotional roller coaster that each of us has individually expereinced.

It will be worth the two hours watching time for you. Do yourself a favor and watch this movie. "Accept Good"

Here is a link to You Tube where Hale Barry talks about the movie:


Love and peace to each of you,

John - Dusky is my handle on here.

Love you Jack

You must be fairly new to this site. I have shared a rather extensive book list in the past so I will list it again below. However, before I do that please check out my own personal web site at http://findingmybananabreadman.com/ which was established to promote the book I wrote following the death of my jack three years ago. It is entitled Finding My Banana Bread Man."

Here is the list of books I promised you. I also think that Marty (The web site moderator) may a link to this same list somewhere on this site - I just do not know how to direct you to it.

Hey Dusky,

I saw "Things We Lost in the Fire" and was surprised at how good it was. I couldn't stop crying (that's a good thing). I especially loved the part when she couldn't sleep so she had him just hold her. I saw it when it first came out on video. I think I would like to see it again. Thanks John!
