|Going to the movie in my |
Christmas Mother-Daughter outfit
Seeing a movie is a Christmas Day tradition in my family. I thought we might skip this year but at the last minute we rushed off to see LINCOLN. Wow! Daniel Day Lewis was LINCOLN. His Oscar-worthy performance was spell-bounding. If you haven’t seen it, go now! I read recently that Lewis demanded the cast, crew and even Spielberg to refer to him as Mr. President. He didn’t break character for three months.
Part of the story line involves the Hampton-Rhodes Peace Conference. Never before have I watched a movie and been so motivated to write. The second book of the Celtic Brooch Trilogy (Braham’s story) takes place during the same period of time as the movie and involves conference participants. I can’t wait to start storyboarding the story. Today though, I have another book to finish.
