Quiet. Quiet. Quiet.
If I listen closely, the fog settles onto the earth
Like this dog next to me
Lumbering down to cover the trees.
The horses flick their tails
And wind rushes through each strand
Just like it used to do to my hair
On that golden beach.
The cows awaken and low
What sound is more lugubrious
Excepting my tears?
Or is that just the rain?
I can sit and watch the sun set through my window every night and feel pleasure. Thank you. For this I am grateful.
I see green leaves morph to blue-black silhouettes.
I see blinding blue sky fill with clouds and then fade, fade, fade.
I watch as the blinding light dies until it barely lightens my room.
I watch as white clouds mix with blue sky to form the ultimate definition of "pale".
I wish the electric wires weren't in my view, but that won't change, so I shift my eyes.
And now the sky is periwinkle and it reminds me of a blue coral waving to me in the current as I float by, exhaling my own blue bubbles.
In the present, I can sit just as weightless, watching the blue wave goodnight.
Arriving home after midnight last night, after our last film on Day 1 , I was soooooo looking forward to sleeping in, but the body's habit woke me up a bit before 6 and... Ugh! Not enough sleep but too bad! I've got at least 4 films on the list today, starting at 11am and stretching past 11pm! Breaking out the hiking shoes for tons of walking between DT and AD Lamar, and the Trader Joe's Korean coffee sticks! Whoo Hoo!
It doesn't sound like much, but I'll leave around 9:15 am, to park south of the river, then walk 1.5 - 2 miles to the theatre. That will put me in line an hour early to secure the best seats! And I'm really, really hoping to see Neil Gaiman! We usually get in line an hour or so before each show, so there is plenty of time to chat, blog, and meet new cool people!
Yesterday, I was running late because we decided to push up our schedule by an hour-- we got all frenetic before we realized, "Hey, it's Day One, and it's FRIDAY! Let's relax, see what we can see, and have fun!" We got great seats to both films! And Nick Offerman is freaking hilarious on film and in real life!
I forgot to track on Strava, but think we walked about 3 miles between venues and had a delish dinner at Koriente!
On the books for today: American Gods, Lucky, Hype, and G Funk!
... the unexpected return.
