    "Trying to decide whether to give away a short film script I was going to make myself'"

    I was on the twitter and saw Ms. Holmes tweet above, some how , very strange to me I thought of my Dad. I tweeted back and told her she should sprout it and see what grows. As with everything today by the time I responded I was out of context. She replied that she did not understand my tweet , I replied give away the script.

    As I was writing my reply it occurred to me that I had dad on my mind and that I was recalling his eulogy that I gave. My Dad was not the best guy , he was loyal, loves my mom right and proper and did provide. Then there is the rest of the story.
    I took the opportunity during the eulogy to allow all to be for given and "not necessarily forgotten. Take that which you shared and if the seed were good sow them. Seeds that would not produce something of beauty then leave them on the shelf.On the shelf they can not produce more seed and will serve as a reminder to sow only that which adds beauty," made mom cry another tought I was a preacher.
    Beauty as we all know is in the eye of the beholder. Yet beauty is beautiful and makes one smile and fell happy and willing to make another smile!
    So why did someone thinking about giving away something make me think about all that
    Seeds! You some time don't know what your going to have in the garden, but it usually is quite lovely.
