Weekend Coffee Share

wordswag_15073188796611453091488Weekend Coffee Share is a time for us to take a break out of our lives and enjoy some time catching up with friends (old and new)!
Grab a cup of coffee and share with us! What’s been going on in your life? What are your weekend plans? Is there a topic you’ve just been ruminating on that you want to talk about?

If we were having coffee, I’d urge you to see Seven Samurai. Maybe you’ve never seen a Japanese film or have any idea who Kurosawa is, I’d tell you I was in your shoes too and regret not branching out to Japanese or other foreign films. This film blew me away in terms of fast pacing, action, a wide range of characters. Your library should have it. I advise getting the Criterion Collection DVD with commentary.

I’ve become so caught up in learning Illustrator to create computer graphics. It’s an amazing program,  but like any tool could take decades to master. I love developing a new creative outlet, but am mindful of not having as much time in day or life to develop all the talents and skills I’d like to.

I’d say my novel is chugging along. I’m taking a girls’ adventure film script I wrote and am adapting it into a novel. I try to write 5 pages a day, but usually get 3 done. I keep finding more to add and questioning what I’m doing. I sure wish I was making more progress.

I’ve got a second job interview on Tuesday. Fingers crossed that it’s a good match. I’ve got a lot of preparation as far as developing a model lesson and completing a proposal for a new class they should develop.

I’d urge you to read C.S. Lewis’ The Screwtape Letters, which I finished this week. It’s a great guide for modern Christians. One point that’s stayed with me is how Lewis points out that modern people — like me — tend to view time as theirs. So when something happens and their schedule changes they often get resentful and perturbed as if “their time” has been stolen. In fact, time doesn’t belong to them. It’s God’s and he’s given it to you. Click here to get the book. It’s one I’ll read again and again. Click to get it on Amazon: The Screwtape Letters Study Guide: A Bible Study on the C.S. Lewis Book The Screwtape Letters (CS Lewis Study Series)
