Are you back? So many really cool things in that post. First, that she got to be part of the world premiere, that she got to see Dr. Jane Goodall, and that she got to be part of the interview. I get all flustery just thinking about it. Jane Goodall is, as far as I'm concerned, one of the most incredible women out there. Strong in a way that so few of us think about. I loved it when Liz said this: "In spite of her soft spoken and gracious style, she still managed to pack a powerful punch with her message of conservation." Because she completely nailed it.
You may remember a while back I attended the live broadcast (it was broadcast in theaters around the country) of the premiere of Jane's Journey. At the end there was a live Q&A with Dr. Goodall, who is absolutely amazing. (Of course, there was no participation, only watching) She is soft spoken and gracious, but she is very clear on her message. And it comes not just from her words, but every action she takes.
Okay, I'll stop gushing. But I am going to go see Chimpanzee, and I highly recommend you watch Jane's Journey just for the look at Jane Goodall's life and what she is really about. And me? I'm going to try to remember that message and think about the consequences of the choices I make.
Next up: If you haven't read Sara's Sleep over at Terri's blog... well, why not? There are 11 installments up and there's only a few left (I think). So if you haven't been reading, now it's like watching a tv series on Netflix - you get to just keep on going through them with no waiting until the next week. All the episodes are right there on the right side bar. Cliff hangars and nail biters - her fiction has it all.
And this: Ree at Pioneer Woman has been posting these crazy good phone photos that people have been submitting. Here's a little secret - I'm a photo geek. I know I haven't been posting many, but some day I should dig out the good ones and put some up. I used to work in photo labs and was pretty good with my old film cameras. But it's been a long while. I'd love to take some classes and bring my skills back up to par with my digital and start taking more photos, beyond the basic snapshots.
I had no idea what I was going to post about today, only that Liz's Chimpanzee post was still on my mind. The rest just tumbled out. So there you have it. Have a read, have a look.
And here's a Friday Funny:
