Since we arrived in Istanbul in April 2002, we've had lots of people wondering how things are going. We would like to get a little more personal in this column in the future by answering questions folks send our way. It doesn't matter what a person would like to ask....

I like to think of filmmaking as an art. Each movie, like a painting, tells a story. Each movie, like a painting, has its own style and unique look or feel to it. It takes a great artist to create a touching, powerful, ironic, or beautiful film. It takes skill to make an audience laugh or cry. So, when given the option of seeing a Van Gogh (The Life of David Gale) or a coloring book scribble (Old School) this weekend, I chose the Van Gogh.

The Life of David Gale is an extremely powerful movie...

Now we're back and I think the colds were just waiting for us to return. If we had known that all this old white stuff was going to greet us, we would have stayed a while longer. We may have had to stay down there until July before it got warm up here. I just love basking in the sun ala natural. I do have to be careful of lately. I've developed so...

The Discipline of Lent

 

On Wednesday March 5 the Christian community begins the observance of Lent. Originally in the first century Lent was only a period of forty hours in keeping with the forty hours Jesus' body was in the tomb. By the third century the observance grew into six days known as Holy Week. Today Lent begins forty-six days before Easter. The six Sundays are considered a little Easter celebration in the midst of Lent.

When Lent begins, depends upon the date of Easter. In 325...
