Tom likes action flicks.
I go for drama - no violence.
We have trouble finding a movie to watch.
But this weekend, in my quest to immerse myself in things pertaining to The Big Bike Ride, I happened across a movie that fit the bill.
Thunderheart, with Val Kilmer, set in the Black Hills of South Dakota.
Even Tom enjoyed the wise old Indian with his weathered face and mysterious words.
He reminded me of the old ad from the 70s - the Indian with the single tear running down his rugged cheek. What was that an ad for?
Jim Bruchac from the Family Nature Summits.
The scenery of Thunderheart is amazing. I had read about the Black Hills, about the badlands - I knew the area was sacred to the Indians - hence the vortex of Little Big Horn, Wounded Knee, and the newly proposed country of Lakotah.
I can't wait to see it all from the seat of my bicycle.
