Sadhvi Sez: “The Hundred Foot Journey” and, it’s still Summer


Summer is not over yet, but seeing all that Halloween stuff in the stores, you might think it’s just around the corner – it is not!  It is still summer, and only on Tuesday, September 23rd will I start to think it’s Fall!

I love summer, and this one has been pretty dreamy, but a lot hotter than I can remember.  Has anyone noticed how stressed out people are these days?  Everyone seems to be jacked up on Mountain Dew or something!  Or maybe because it’s getting hotter.

I don’t know about you, but I have given up on being freaked out or surprised by things these days.

I also have given up on trying to figure people out.  I am sure there are lots of folks out there on drugs and meds, in pain, or having a hard time, so my heart is wide-open like Our Lady of Guadalupe.

oops50 hundred foot Being “over the hill” and not knowing how much time I have left, I’ve decided to try enjoying my life.  I know, I know, I should have been doing that for a long time now.  But I happen to be a work-a-holic, and love to create things, which means, I am almost always doing something.  Always.

So taking the time out to go see a movie once in a while is really good for my soul.

There are SO MANY movies to choose from!  To make it easy to pick just one good one, I am going to let you in on one that you MUST see: “The Hundred Foot Journey”.  It takes place in a small French village, and it is, well, I don’t want to tell you anything about it, just go see it!

I hope you are enjoying what is left of summer, and this beautiful life.

About Sadhvi

Sadhvi's trying to find the balance in life over 50 without having any surgery, taking any pills, or killing anyone. She doesn't want to look or feel the way she felt when she was 20 or 30. Trusting that everything is really OK unless you think about it helps her make it through each day. Also realizing that nothing can be done, and, that nothing matters really helps. Gardening (and weeding), poppies and flowers, painting on things, baking, and sharing on Oops50 helps to make it all right too.

  1. Live everyday as if it is your last. Take every color in and remember them. This movie is a great one (no violence) – goes to show that every old gal can learn a new thing. Being old we have lots of memories, but do relish all the new adventures. Hugs

  2. hey sadhvi,
    another good piece.
    we have not seen 100 Foot yet, but will.
    We liked Boyhood a lot, but “enjoyed’ Chef even more.
    keep writing, girl!

  3. That movie does look quite good. I’m looking forward to it coming out on dvd so we can rent it from the flick or redbox. I’ll have to think about a movie we enjoyed. I can’t say I remember anything in the moment!

  4. You are so funny Sadhvi!
    I am so busy I’ve not seen a summer movie – yet.
    Thanks for the tip….when things slow down I hope to see it.

  5. Movie does look good. I thought we had a cool summer until this month came along. I can even tell by my electric bill. Didnt use A.C. all that much. Now I haven’t had it off going on for 2 weeks. Love ya, keep up the great stories you tell. By the way great pic of you.

  6. Love the hundred foot journey. Finally something real honest and human – with no violence! Hope you’re doing well.

  7. Hellz yes! It’s still summer and I have sand in my sandals to prove it. Weeks more of summer left, maybe I’ll catch a movie , maybe not. Thanx for your insight! 🙂

  8. zen and I saw that movie when we went to see our parents in Florida recently. I wish I could recommend it, but we would have walked out after 30 minutes if we were not with my parents. Plus: beautiful scenery. Down: everything predictable and so long. 45 min too long. I especially did not like the love interest of the cook. She was not an actress I would like to see again. Well..there you have another review!

  9. Thanks for the tip, Sadhvi. I too am embracing every moment of elderhood. Take a look at the book Second Wind to get an idea how boomers may move thru this stage of life.

  10. Hey Sadhvi!
    Yes, yes, a thousand times yes for this movie…..more like that I say.
    Finally – not only was it a well-written story with decent acting, the beautiful visuals including the faces with liquid eyes were a delight to gaze upon-and, it ended well. Not often does one leave the theater feeling good about life again. For example, I just came from seeing “About a Boy”. It got rave reviews and had a unique approach but as one that leaves one feeling uplifted, no comparison……
    As far as summertime fading slowly into the next season, I came to the realization that I could choose to flow with the change instead of attempting to make it stop where it was, (in my mind of course), as I tend to do at the end of every summer. My intended outcome in dropping the resistance to what is will indubitably be more peace of mind……Ta da. I always enjoy your blogs. Love, Our Lady of Leicester.
