Thoughts On Bond February 14, 2009

I want to examine this line from Casino Royale and think about it in other terms.

Vesper Lynd: You’re not going to let me in there, are you? You’ve got your armour back on. That’s that. 
James Bond: I have no armour left. You’ve stripped it from me. Whatever is left of me – whatever is left of me – whatever I am – I’m yours.

Now. James has just been very much injured…its probably the one part of the movie I cannot sit through, even though he laughs during a part of it. And Vesper is talking to him and this is the part where he tells her he loves her and yadda. I never really thought there was supposed to be a love story with James Bond, but then again I never watched the classic ones. Which I should do, I know. But I find these lines interesting.

Jame’s Armour is his secrets. He has some he won’t tell Vesper even though he says that he has no armour left. That he is completely and utterly hers. I’m a bit confused but its the line that stuck out to me the most in the movie. It was just simply there and nagging at me for the last 25 minutes of the movie. REally James? Really?

One of my favorite scenes in the movie is the part of the stairwell chase and Vesper is sitting in the shower. She is shaken but what she has just witnessed, not quite as strong as James thought her to be. James goes and sits with her in the shower and “takes care of her” so to speak. Thus starts and sparks their new romance. There we see Vespers Vulnerability and later we see James Vulnerability in his armour speech. 

So what do I think this all says….

In order to be completely in love with another person and to give yourself over to them fully, you must be completely shed of all armour and vulnerable. You must deal out your faults, your fears, and so on. You must give up yourself  (as does the other person). To each other in all honesty is to know the faults of the other. To know their strengths and their weaknesses. 

You catch my drift? Thoughts? Opinions? Arguments?


Thoughts on Obama January 20, 2009

I try to stay out of Politics. They make me uneasy and there is something about them that just turns me off completely. Maybe it’s because I see how they tear people apart and cause people to fight, over what they think is right. We all have different thoughts on that.

Today I saw a photo of Obama in the Newspaper. A Local one. He was wearing a white shirt with his sleeves rolled up and he was just talking, pointing to something. I placed this image in my mind and remembered seeing it countless times during the fall. Obama with his sleeves rolled up. Almost like he is saying he is ready to get to work. He is normal like us and has to roll his sleeves up to get to work. It’s a very powerful image to me.

Today being a huge day in Washington, D.C., I figure I should place my thoughts on Mr. Obama. I think he is good for this country. He is not flaunting the fact that he is the First African American president in our faces, he is taking this step as an honor. He will tell us that he will do his best as President and for once, I believe him. I know that things will not change right away, but I think that in the long run we will see a difference.

What I wouldn’t give to sit down and just have coffee with Mr. Obama. To know what he is thinking, feeling, and just to experience him as a real human being. Politicians often get a bad rep. I think we miss judge some of them. We judge them because we don’t know them. We only know what they tell us and sometimes we don’t believe them.

Mr. Obama,

I wish you all the best as President. I hope that you make the best of these next four years. I know that you will do this country a lot of good. I am anxious to see what changes will be made and how they will relate to me. Though I have not followed you through your entire race to the White House, I am finding that your Hope is contagious. That there is something more to believe in. I thank you for bringing the morale of the United STates back up and pray that you can keep it that way. All best Mr. President!

I need to put some thoughts down: 

I copyright these thoughts because I am in the process of turning them into a song or poem…. Comment as you wish on them!


What a day I had Today

nothing turned out right

It started off just fine

and took a turn with one fight


I’m at a loss for words

I don’t have any breath

I’m frustrated with this feeling

Do you where I’m at?


But you told me just wait

You said things will be just fine

Rough todays bring better tomorrows


And cracked a joke 

then told me just to smile

Cause rough todays

can show us how to be a light


I need to know more details

Please tell me what is wrong

I can’t just sit here any more


I’m so tired of being this

I’m so sick of being sick

I need to do something right


And you said it takes some time

that it all will turn out right

Rough todays bring better tomorrows


So help me just to smile

and help me pass the time

Cause rough todays

can always turn out bright


Might call it Rough Todays

It def needs more work but I had a rough today. I’m so tired of taking meds and using cremes. I just want it all to go away. But life is life and a ton of people have it worse them me.


So let me make you smile

and let me tell you its alright

Cause rough Todays

show us how to be a light.
