13 Good Movies I've Seen Since the Beginning of 2010

1. Mary and Max (Lovely music, Toni Collette's voice is soothing, and the story, wow)
2. The Boys are Back (How about a sad Clive Owen?)
3. Monsieur Batignole (Gérard Jugnot is great in a half-grumpy, half-nice man)
4. The Ghost Writer (Definitely didn't see the end coming)
5. The Blind Side (Yes, I cried, a lot. So much empathy is moving)
6. Up in the Air (Changing one's life isn't that easy)
7. Bright Star (For someone crazy about needlework like me, it was a real treat)
8. Broken Embraces (Falling in love, pretending to love)
9. The Boy in the Striped Pajamas (Some children really have a pure heart)
10. Welcome (Help, even when it's illegal)
11. Adam (Love and being loved when you suffer from Asperger's Syndrome)
12. Easy Virtue (Naughty prude and hypocrite in-laws)
13. Les grandes chaleurs (Older woman, (really) younger man)

Berta, a Teacher from Amsterdam

Oh Berta, Berta, Berta... Can't stop looking at your wonderful photos, especially your 500 x 500 set on flickr. Aren't those pictures to die for?

Corner View: Spring

I know, I know, I am like three weeks late, but I like CV so much I can't just no do it...

Spring arrived a little earlier in Québec this year but I don't seem to be ready to take pictures of all the cute little bursting buds. I guess I still feel a little wintery somewhere inside of me.

Nevertheless, two days ago, I told myself that we make our own spring the way we want to. So here's my spring at the moment...
