Recently I've been inspired by several blogs either devoted to links or featuring occasional spotlights to start one of my own. I know I appreciate it when others enjoy what I write enough to share, whether it be through posts, facebook, twitter, or in awards, and I want to share in that sense of community in a more active way. Possibly once a month, will see how things go. Will also include other items of interest, mainly film related but I make no promises.

- I love how Kendra takes her love of the Oliviers outside the internet in the people she meets, the places she goes and the event she has planned that I wish I could attend! Recently Kendra visited Tickerage Mill, home of Vivien Leigh, and shared her adventure.
- In the spirit of the day Heather's lovely post about pen pals and parental love, Trudy
