Tonight The King's Speech opened at the Marshall 6 Theatre. We were in line for the first show. This past week we'd seen Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham Carter interviewed on Piers Morgan's show, and we've been looking forward to seeing this movie ever since it came out. We were not disappointed. Brilliant, as the British say. We loved it--the acting, the music, the cinematography--all beautiful. Four thumbs up. We'll be recalling lines, talking about scenes, and weaving Bertie, Lionel, Myrtle, Churchill, and the Queen Mum into our conversations for some time now.
I love to play with words. To capture moments on the page. To explore the physical and spiritual geography of what I call "fly-over country." I write from imagination, observation and my own experience of wandering in fly-over country--the literal, physical spaces of my life on the Minnesota prairie and the inner territory of the soul.
