Begin Again is a resilient "senior citizen". Reinventing and restructuring her life has become almost common place for her.

I love music, books, and sitting by the water. Each of these activities brings a sense of life to me.

She is an accomplished script writer and is currently at the #10 spot on the rankings.

The "Pirates of the Caribbean" credits played across the movie screen.

"Think I can be a pirate?" A patch covered Tommy's eye.

"We'll sail the high seas together, mate," Dad growled.

Outside the theater, snow blanketed the ground.

"Shiver me timbers; we've a fight on our hands."

"Incoming." Splat! Dad was down.

"Captain Jack Sparrow, how goes your command?"

"Load the ammunition. Fire away."

Tommy aimed and let one fly. Missed! He fired again.

The enemy returned fire.

Icy cold cannonballs ripped through the air amidst squeals of delight.

A bikini-clad girl adorned the billboard.

It read -- 'Welcome to Florida. Come have fun in the sun.'
