Soon to be In Charge Again --- Day 7/21

Walk: Hood Errands
Distance: 2 miles, PT, Yoga, Pedal

Here we go again with another cat post.  Ciwt apologizes.  For five months she was virtually alone in her home nursing her ailing knee.  Everything was Totally under control, shipshape, undemanding (except for PT) and every inch was hers.  Then came two adorable little home wreckers and a whole bunch of people who want to take her art tours.  Ciwt will regain control, and CIWT will no longer have cat entries - soon.  Hang in there.  (You know the poster image for that phrase ... 😑)

Jigger, the Doc! --- Day 7/19

Walk: No, Cats to the Vet and other cat errands, then rain
Distance: Few Blocks

Ciwt knows cat pics are a cop out, but getting two cats to one vet appointment and then doing follow up errands for them was a full time job for her today.  Kind of a shock for her cats as well.  Patients and owners doing fine - (actually it was just a new cat follow up check).

Horse Talk --- Day 7/18

Walk: Cinema Club, Japantown
Distance: 2.4 miles

             Charlie Plummer in Lean on Pete

Havng totally missed the message on Daylight Savings TimeCiwt arrived sleep deprived at her cinema club this morning. The film they screened Lean on Pete portraying grim, downbeat, interior loneliness did nothing to perk her up. She's never been a fan of 'down on America' anything. But she can't say conclusively "Don't go" because 15 year old Charlie Plummer - who is in virtually every scene - does a remarkable acting job. Plus the (young) critics so far and many members of her cinema club have given it very high marks. Is it bedtime yet?

Dark As Can Be --- Day 7/17

Walk: SF Opera House (Frankenstein)
Distance: 5 miles

Forget your stiff-legged Boris Karloff. Ciwt has never seen a ballet as psychologically and physically dark as San Francisco Ballet's Frankenstein. Flawlessly danced and conducted. Ciwt wonders if there was any kind of penalty paid by the principals who had to get into and dance such disturbing roles.

Immersed in Water --- Day 7/16

Distance: 3 miles, little yoga stretch

After avoiding the crowded building with lots of stairs while recovering from her knee surgery, Ciwt took another trip back to SFMOMA today.  She went to begin preparing for upcoming tours, but spent her time at a couple of new exhibitions instead. Both on the 7th, Contemporary Floor.  She went relunctantly because, in her opinion, the exhibitons on that floor have been a mess (for lack of better descriptive words) ever since the museum opened almost two years ago.  Except for one "Sound Scape" exhibition which was restful and wonderful.

Her favorite piece in that was porcelain bowls floating gently and randomly bumping into each other.
When they did, the whole room sounded of ethereal chimes.  And then quiet returned.  Some people sate for hours; it was that meditative.

Johm Akomfrah, Vertigo Sea in which the Filmmaker explores man's relationship with the sea and its role in the history of slavery, migration, and conflict, literature, industry and other worldly and timeless matters.

Reviewers have called it "sublime," "ravishing," "awful," "utterly immersive."  Ciwt found it all that and more.
