All the Shine of a Thousand Spotlights


This chapter was inspired by an interview I saw with Lin Manuel-Miranda about Hamilton and Beyonce. I thought it would translate well to this story! Hope you enjoy! Thanks for reading! 


Chapter Fourteen – When You’re Worn Out and Tired

It started as a gentle sniffle. I’d handed him a kleenex without much thought. Jamie was never sick. Never even allergies. The sniffle alone should have alerted me. But it didn’t. The sniffle grew stronger and lasted a few days. I figured everyone gets sniffles and it didn’t really matter. 

But then the sniffle became a cough. 

And the cough was obnoxious. It was loud. It sounded painful. It made him double over sometimes as he barked it out. 

He was getting worse.

Michelle Williams’ Surprisingly Personal Speech About Abortion Was the Golden Globes’ Most Powerful Moment

At the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday night, Michelle Williams credited her professional achievements to “a woman’s right to choose.”

While accepting the Best Actress in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for TV award for her turn as Gwen Verdon in Fosse/Verdon, Williams made an astute connection between the choices an actor makes in her professional life and the choices she makes in her personal life. She thanked the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for the award, noting that awards recognize not only the choices an actor makes onscreen but also “the education they pursued, the training they sought, the hours they put in…”

Without using the word abortion, Williams made a point that abortion-rights advocates have used to build support for reproductive rights: that people who oppose abortion should make that choice for themselves, not for everyone else. “I know my choices may look different than yours, but thank God or whomever we pray to that we live in a country founded on the principle that I am free to live by my faith and you are free to live by yours,” Williams said…  

Williams’ speech stood out in its rhetorical elegance, impassioned delivery, and surprisingly personal nature. Its power is a testament to the importance of women’s representation in politics: No one knows the value of reproductive rights like someone who’s exercised them.

How true! As a Hong Konger I grew up with subtitles, even if it’s a Cantonese film (which even used to have Chinese and English subtitles for reasons unknown) so subtitles don’t bother me at all so I’m open to watching films in any language and that’s wonderful.

Parasite is a great film, though disturbing. Watch it if you like to be disturbed once in a while!


“Once you overcome the one inch barrier of subtitles you’ll be introduced to so many more amazing films.” -Bong Joon Ho
