A daily record of gratitude; from quilting to photography to a mix of technology, books, movies and the musings of life!

Welcome to my Blog of my daily gratitude and photo of the day!

Since January 1, 2012, my goal is to write a daily sentence or two (or paragraph or two) about gratitude of the day and to include one photo (at least) that I took that day (but will add others from time to time). It has definitely been a challenge most days throughout the past eight years, and welcomed the challenge again this year - 2020 - Covid and all. I hope you will continue the ride with me!

"Wolf of Wall Street"

I am still trying to finish up all the academy award nominated movies and just finished the provocative film; "The Wolf of Wall Street" staring Leo DiCaprio tonight. It is definitely a black comedy directed by the one and only Martin Scorsese, and based on Jordan Belfort's memoir of the same name. Wall Street was shameless in the 1990's, and this movie depicted Mr. Belfort's firm that engaged in securities fraud and corruption during that time. Some very "raunchy" scenes throughout but the gluttony of earning millions seemed to be the draw of this flick (more like controversial)! Fasten the seat belt to view-my "warning". 

Believe it or not, I think I need to see only one more, "Gravity" to finish the 2013 run for Oscar. Maybe next week.
