Faces of Huntington's is a deeply touching, wonderfully informative, and powerfully encouraging book. It recounts the struggles of some unseen heroes of compassion living among us, and it teaches us all how to better face the struggles of life. Get prepared to give away your heart.

Steve Martin once said, “All of life's riddles are answered in the movies.” I don’t know that I would go as far as to say that all of life’s riddles are answered in movies, but I would say that movies transport us to a place that we can't go to ourselves. Or sometimes movies take us to a place where we have been before and want to go again.
Starting May first I’ll be posting movie reviews here. Movies can make us laugh, cry, think, or question our past, present, or future. Mary Schmich, columnist for the Chicago Tribune, said, “You can map your life through your favorite movies, and no two people's maps will be the same.” Your list might be the polar opposite of mine, but hopefully I’ll give you some movies to consider.
According to Alfred Hitchcock, “A good film is when the price of the dinner, the theatre admission and the babysitter were worth it.” At today’s prices it takes a lot to be good film! Hopefully I’ll save you time and money by helping you choose movies to see that are worth the price of admission, or rental, and then some.
Check back on May 1. Until then, enjoy a movie or two.
