Not a Cancer Story

Movie: “The Fault in Our Stars” Genre: Young Adult (YA) and Romance

I have to establish a few facts before I go on writing an article on this movie. One, I unfortunately was unable to read the book so I will be unable to comment on how well the book transitioned into film (something that is often an important thing for me to do). Secondly, the first thing I said about this movie was “I don’t like cancer movies”.

The heavy medical talk and constant knowledge that your beloved characters will, most likely, die at the end is something that I am not a fan of to be completely honest. I’m not a fan of sappy happy endings, but sad ones are even worse. Movies such as these just turn me into a puddle of tears in the movie theatre.

However, The Fault in Our Stars, which was adapted from John Green’s best seller, surpassed my expectations. With all these YA novels being turned into movies, it would seem that Green’s book is just one drop in a sea. Yet, the unique plot and deepness of this story drew

me in in a more mature way, even if it did turn me into a puddle of tears at the end.

Early On a Sunday Morning

On Where Pianos Roam

I confess.  I've been neglecting this blog for the last week.  My apologies to all who have checked in and not seen much activity here at WPR.   For the most part, it's back to normal after I've had to take care of various other matters in my full and busy life. 

I'd like to give a little update on what I've been up to lately. 

First off, on the knitting front, I wanted to do something other than a scarf or a hat.  Since my bed could always use another pillow (I LOVE pillows), I decided to knit a throw-pillow cover like any man who is confident in his masculinity would do.
