A hammock day!

Vanessa sends a photo of a hammock, to aid my musing today, but I must admit that it is so cold and gray, that my imagination is struggling to laze on the beach, and is instead swooshing along in a sleigh. Jeff and Chris are here today, and they are enjoying some amazing,new, interactive computer game, called World of Warcraft. I hear the pounding of thrown spells, and can pass on that, even though they tell me it is a great way to bond with others. Jeff is in the game with Jan who is is Santa Rosa, and Drake who is in Australia. You could be there too!

Steve takes a nap, and I begin to absorb in a re-reading of "A General Theory of Love" by Lewis, Amini, and Lannon. I have turned down almost every page from my previous reading, and look forward to re-entering again. You may not be able to step in the same stream twice, but you can re-read a book, and see just where you stand along, or in, the water, and on which bank.

Steve and I watched a wonderful movie last night, "Something the Lord Made," about Vivien Thomas and Alfred Blalock who worked together to save blue babies. It is startling in the reminder of segregation, and just how bad it was. Vivien, a Black man, had to enter John Hopkin's through the servants quarters to do his laboratory work. Now, many black doctors work there, and walk through the front doors. This movie is an example of the power of change and doing and working for and in what you want. It has five stars on Amazon. I say the same.
