November 24, 2016

Remembering my cousin's big house where the family would gather on one specific day of Giving Thanks.  The men would slouch into the 'game room' where an illegal slot machine and Irish whiskey was on hand.  Two fingers did me in that day.  Wow..

Watched a movie by the Belgian director Jaco Van Dormael last night, The Eighth Day. He also directed a terrific film called Mr.Nobody that was odd and fantastical.. as this film also is... It's a take on Down Syndrome that will melt your heart and will melt it even more if you understand French..or can read Korean subtitles.  It works just fine with the images and snatches of words you may have heard before "Formidable.." 
 I am thankful for many things.. It's nice that a few folks whom I may not even know, read these ramblings and chart the changes in the sky, the growth of the trees and, even, my chayote. 

Twilight Zone Marathon!  The oddly soothing voice of Rod Serling narrating tales laced with irony.  Burgess Meredith as Henry Bemis, Reader:  Isn't it great that one sentence can recall an entire episode of the series?  (Well, for me, anyway.)

Fresh grapefruit juice from the neighbor down the street and oranges and blessings.
