the Da Vinci Code -

Steve and I saw the Ron Howard movie today, The Da Vinci Code, a perfect rainy day for it, and we both enjoyed it, despite what seemed to me to be rather negative reviews.  It did not seem too long to us.  It takes time to unfold, and I greatly appreciated that we did not have a love interest between the two main characters.  Thank God and Goddess for that, a movie that recognizes that two people can explore together and not end up in bed.  Isn't that the whole point of the movie?   The goddess and sanity return.   There is a richness to the movie, and I love the beauty of the scenes, and the merging of the past and the present.  I could not imagine editing it any differently than was done.  We both enjoyed it, and left feeling at peace with a movie that allows you your own choice as to ending.  What do you choose to believe?   

Also, I had no problem with Tom Hank's hair.  What is wrong with some of these male reviewers?    I thought both he and she did a good job of two people coming together in most unusual and dangerous circumstances to uncover a mystery.  His hair seemed just right to me,  and I was fine with the pacing which allows one time to think.  Oh, my!   I guess we don't want that in these times. 

There is a good editorial in the NY Times today on how all this instant messengering and email is affecting the depth of our thought.  There are new TV shows aimed at children the age of six months.  Oh, my.  I worry about our ability to see and discern when our eyes are confined to TV colors and not the depth of exchange when we are outside.  

I fertilized plants in the mist today.  I am becoming used to this wetness.  Soon, my complexion will be as dewey as the complexions of the women of England.  What a treat is the skin of many of those young women in the Cotswold's in England, though when I was there this summer, I learned that many of the young girls who "serve" are not English at all, but are  foreigners from Scandinavian countries.  Can you imagine?   And so it is, and has been.   May we all on this planet live in peace, and a beautiful fan of feathers framing the views, the richness of so many views, except  those that hide behind a multitude of Bushs' and stew about how to allow only a few to chew the news, like tobacco, and spit.  Happy Sunday to You!!  I'm enjoying the wet.   I hope you are enjoying what the sky is bringing to you.
