Getting Back to Blogging

Our life has just been crazy!  I still need to blog about our trip to Hong Kong back in January, and I’ll get to it, I promise!  

I just wanted to let you all know that we are alive and well.  Eric is employed, we are building a house and we have put a deposit on a very special puppy! Bella is studying for an AP exam and looking forward to some surprise employment that was offered to her this summer. Chloe is continuing to work hard in school and has set some amazing goals for herself… more on that later! Eleanor and Meg are busy with school, as usual, and are loving their new primary classes. Anne is busy learning all about the travel and tourism industry because she wants to help others do what we’ve done! We’ve got a couple more irons on the fire, but I’ll speak about those as they get closer!

The thing that really drove me back to the blog was a Youtube video, that I have to admit is one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen on Youtube!

Get a snack and sit down and enjoy this! It will enrich your life, I promise!

In 1999, Aleksandr Petrov won the Academy Award for Short Film (among other awards) for a film that follows the plot line of Ernest Hemingway’s classic novella, The Old Man and the Sea (1952). As noted here, Petrov’s technique involves painting pastels on glass, and he and his son painted a total of 29,000 images for this work. Rather incredible.
