Living an involuntary hermit's life. Working towards living a healthier, gluten-free, hopefully cancer free life with my 2 dogs, 3 chickens and loving family.

Living with intention

When stumbling through life isn't good enough anymore..... decide to be yourself and enjoy life, and pay attention to Gods gifts all around.

I Am (The Documentary)

LL and I did make it to Portland today to see the film I Am.  It is a documentary made by Tom Shadyac, the director of movies like Bruce Almighty and Ace Ventura. 

This is an excellent film about Human nature, the world, materialism, science and spirituality.  I can not even begin to go into everything I learned and how much I enjoyed the documentary.  It featured the now passed away, Howard Zinn, Desmond Tutu, Thom Hartmann, and many others.  It was beautifully filmed, edited, and written. 

I hope if you get the chance to go see it, or rent it when it comes out on dvd, you will take the time to do so.  It truly starts out asking the question "what is wrong with our world?", and finishes with "what is right with our world?".  And the answer to both questions is..........I AM!

Konnie, after seeing the trailer and reading your review, my friend Carol and I plan to see this film this weekend also. Movies are my escape and this one should bring me up also. There's something about a movie in a theater, hmmm ... and I'm not talking about popcorn!
