Walk: No - Too busy passing Defensive Driving Test Distance: 0, Yoga
So Ciwt passed her (required) online California Traffic School (grrr*) course. After reading all those accident statistics and cirmcumstances, part of her is reluctant to ever get in a car again. The other part of her now needs to open her DMV Driver Handbook and start cramming for her upcoming license renewal test.
1. Interesting facts she guesses, 2. well done she guesses, 3. disheartening+ she knows, so in all Ciwt does not personally recommend Three Identical Strangers. But Rotten Tomatoes and audience critics do, so your choice.
Maybe part of why Ciwt finds this photo - by a 9 year old - so wondrous is that these are real stars, in a real sky, a hour or so from her home. For so many years her San Francisco sky has had maybe 10-12 visible stars and often none at all because of our fog and/or city lights.
Walk: A few errands Distance: A few blocks, a little yoga
Rene Magritte, Empire of Light, 1950, o/c
eat your heart out. Here's one of Magrittes's paintings exploring sky, light and home. And above is a photo by a college classmate's grandson. He planned ahead at his grandparents' vineyard, waited until a certain hour, adjusted his new camera's speed and lens, hoped for clear skies and shot this of the Milky Way in Northern California. He is 9.
Ciwt spent today enrolling her new cats in 'home pet sitting camp.' Photos and form after form for each cat and each service. She started off thinking "Okay, this time I'll just drop them off at a cat boarding place." Well, the one closest to her charges - are you ready - $175 a day for her new little darlings. The 'less expensive' places require her to bring all sorts of beds and toys that will cost a pretty penny plus the girls must arrive perfectly groomed with lovely nails and Ciwt knows what that means...( a groomer appointment).
Ciwt has her fingers and their paws crossed in hopes her adorable, clean, youngish, healthy cats will be accepted because, one of these days, she would like to take a trip.
