.... (60f), gray day. Spent three hours this morning on the boat, enjoying sometimes good wind under the grey, roiling clouds of the cold front, and sometimes not. The salt from the water, and the intense tanning from the ever present sun rays (even in doom and gloom) leaves me feeling crusty, salty and nicely tired.
It has been a hard week of school along with many other responsibilities crowding in. I think I shall take my day more lightly for the rest of the day. A refrigerator is well stocked with inspiring things to make for dinner. A choice from four, newly arrived DVDs, Bresson's A Man Escaped (1956) or L'argent (1983) (which is the pick to click (old music biz term) at the moment), or Godard's Weekend (1967) or Vadim's La Ronde ( I had gone looking for the earlier, 1950, one). I am trying to maintain this decision as the only "discouraging word" for the rest of the day. For those interested in film music, a wonderful new book (so far) shall be the rest of the afternoon (between naps).
Some wonderful blogging going on, from France by native English speakers. I can only express a deep admiration for the musical life form who mused this. And be sure to go back to the currant entry for this image "My feet crunch on crystallized thyme, its aroma frozen." Meanwhile the Madame, another musical life form , sputters and purrs. She is always entertaining and thought provoking.
I have signed on to a local computer dating board, I am a little worried by my action, it is not like I am lonely in my single condition, but I am a bit curious. Sometimes I wonder whether my dinner and movie plan might be better, shared with another. My memory (it is going on some time now) is that the other human can be so... so... shall I say, "on a different tack". Or, it is not always the case that any pair of people can be on the same "wavelength" at the same time. Well wish me luck, and maybe someday in the future, I will have some empirical info to share on this subject.
