Change of Plans - last night when I went looking for the Pride and Prejudice films I found a long lost set of Jeeves and Wooster with Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry in the A&E series. So - following Hugh Laurie's career again. Delightful shows. Ofcourse Jim and I like most anything made in England, especially recreating a period. Glad to have found them.
Yesterday Granny Sue mentioned The Diving Bell and the Butterfly - it is mesmerizing and I appreciate her other recommendations.
Anyone have any other suggestions for good films they have enjoyed?
Chosing your own programming is so much more enjoyable than being at the mercy of scheduled TV. Don't you think that is part of the popularity of Net Flix? As well as the run on cds at the Library these days. There was a report yesterday on the rise of usage of the public library in our County - books, movies and the foot traffic to use the computers. I imagine that is the story across the county.
There are magazines, bits of paper, scissors, and glues sticks scattered on the table in my studio where I am working on a collection of new collages. One-a-day is my goal. Feels good. I started this work in Jim's hospital room. And it jump-started my urge to cut and paste.
My other recycling this week was to NAMI - a local thrift shop - where I found two great jersey shirts and a pair of sweat pants for Jim - comfortable convalescing clothes. He has a one of the shirts and the sweats on this morning and looks back to himself.
Rip Van Winkle effect:
After two weeks of being off-normal I am widening my focus, waking up to getting back to my routine and work plans. And facing stacks of mail, the papers I left stacked on my desk, catching up with what has happened since I have been off.
This is sort of like coming home after vacation - except that when we got home - we did not just step back into regular life we brought new issues with us - all the issues concerned with Jim's care and recovery. So it was not just walking in the front door, unpacking and picking up where we left off. We had to switch gears - and let the old stuff stay there until we could get to it.
Now we are getting to it.
Waking up is something. Tell me, how has it multiplied like this? Or have I forgotten how much I walked away from?
