As I settled in the grass
and watched the trees, the sky,
I noticed a calmness, with a soft breeze.
As if the world had just sat down
and taken a deep breath
to retreat from the rushing time.
Then suddenly, the branches I viewed
were not relaxing, but rustling,
and the clouds swirled about eagerly with passion.
The tranquil scene became restless before my eyes
without actually changing pace or tone,

Vouchsafe it to say that nothing like Touchstone Theatre's "Ulysses Dreams" was going on when the outdoor theater work was being presented for only its fourth performance April 14 at the Bethlehem Greenway Amphitheater no, not in any park, in any city, anywhere in the United States, or in any nation in the whole wide world.

I hear my mom waking me up
Pork shoulder sizzling
Smelling the cookies,
three leche cake
Tasting the sweet sweet
pots and pans
in the kitchen
the glittery red bows
The cozy warm
Me seeing my presents

"The Croods" has its own kind of, ahem, "crood" charm.
Yes, there's lots of punching and smacking, fighting, rolling around, chasing, ugly faces, insults and did we say? fighting.
And that's just the Crood family of cavemen or is it cave persons? and doesn't include the prehistoric creatures.
Admittedly, I resisted seeing "The Croods." It was a case of 3D-animation feature overload. Also, I may have been wondering how "The Croods" could improve upon TV's "The Flintstones...
