Friday night I chaperoned a movie night for some middle schoolers. We watched Alfred's Hitchcock's Rear Window. I had seen it years ago and was interested in seeing it again. Here are my observations.
~It is sad that kids today have no attention span. If a plot is not moving a hundred miles an hour, they lose interest.
~In the midst of our chaotic lives, it is difficult to pay attention to details.
~It feels as though we live disposable lives today. Buy it cheap at Target, use it for a season and toss it. Paper, plastic, synthetic crap. None of it ages well. Wood, linen, silk, leather. These have staying power.
~Dressing well is worth the trouble. Here are some fine examples.
Check out the gorgeous bracelet. All the moms were drooling over it. Ah, the grace, the elegance!
~Men often don't know a good thing when they have it.
~Last but not least, if you are going to murder someone, for goodness sake, pull the blinds!
