Location: Clear Lake City: Houston, TexasDate: 15 February 2007Camera: Canon Powershot A410After a warm filling bowl of Pho at an almost always packed place aptly called Pho 21, while my favorite lunchmate a.k.a. my husband, his work friend, and another friend got their Bubble tea ritual picked up at Bubble Island, I headed on to a drive-thru Starbucks to get a cup of Soy Latte on my way back to the library for my afternoon leg of study.And this wonderful thought was written on my coffee cup: “ Many people search blindly for the ‘meaning of life.’ What they don’t seem to understand is that life does not have meaning through mere existence or acquisition or fun. The meaning of life is inherent in the connections we make to others through honor and obligation.” by Dr. Laura Schlessinger

Juliette Lewis and Layla Alizada played the roles wonderfully. The movie was both provocative and heart wrenching.
