Raising a family out of the ruins of the past. Mothering and movies, grief and grace, books and blunders. Recovery without chicken soup.

Phillip Seymour Hoffman's "Slow Boat to China"
From "The Master," a perfect scene of longing and regret and uncrossable distance.
So many brilliant performances, so many unforgettable characters, but not enough, never enough. I saw a photo of Hoffman at Sundance last week and felt a familiar thrill at his beautiful expressive face.
"What is his next magic?" I wondered. And now there is no more.
