MOVIES: REUNION/BLISS/THE LITTLE THINGS

By |2021-02-09T19:09:01-05:00February 9th, 2021|Movies|0 Comments

Is it something in the air? The latest movies have left me wanting.  REUNION, a horror film out of New Zealand, starring Julia Ormond is one of the dreariest movies I've seen in a long time.

INSPIRATION ON MLK DAY: LISTEN

By |2021-01-23T13:15:12-05:00January 18th, 2021|Joyce's Choices, Music|0 Comments
