Perils and Pleasures of This Kind Devotion

Tales for Life

Kayla’s life was upended when Great-Aunt Bertie fractured her second hip and stayed at the nursing home, then rehabilitation services. But that was nothing compared to the current state of matters. Fractures and rehab are manageable for stubborn old women, it turned out. After Bertie decided to move in with her often absent nephew an entire state away, Kayla felt adrift in two time zones, the past and present all at once. She could not find her bearings. She kept hearing Bertie call out for her and simultaneously had to answer a student whose voice bot more insistent.

“Why?” She had implored one more time the last week Bertie was there. “I only teach twice a week this term and we’ve always managed. We can get someone to come in when I’m not here if needed.”

Wilson (2017)

Wildfire Movies


Starring: Woody Harrelson, Laura Dern, Judy Greer, Isabella Amara

Director: Craig Johnson

A misanthropic man called Wilson is finds himself longing for connection but unable to get out of his own way, til his wife mentions that they have a kid he didn’t know about and he sets out to meet his teenage daughter who was adopted out. In the process, he makes plenty of mistakes, meets new people, and slowly learns some lessons about himself.
