Nada and Nice --- Day 7/218

Walk: No
Distance: 0, Yoga

Ciwt had all sorts of movie and practice tee plans, but abandoned them for reading* with cats on her deck in our Indian summer.  Splendid decision.

* The Forgiven.  Quite good.

Man on the Moon --- Day 7/217

Walk: Vogue Theater (First Man)
Distance: 1.4 miles

Ciwt fought and respected the realism of First Man.  The movie was about an American heroic mission and an American hero, and both were presented in down to earth dailiness.  No dramatic music, no larger than life swaggerer, no technical breakthrough moments or suspenseful nailbiters.  In other words none of the usual fanfare that Ciwt had come to expect on the silver screen, and therein lies its strength.  It shows us what actual heroism is: real accomplishments done by real people living real lives.  

Until First Man gets to the moon.  Then it soars as movie making and should be seen if only for those Intimate minutes on the absolutely silent moon*.

*(Here the viewer must continue to ignore the melodramatic human interest story the director decided to attach to Armstrong.  Ciwt found it unnecessary and unbelievable, along with his portrayal of Aldrin).

Takes Time Sometimes --- Day 7/214

Having a Ball --- Day 7/213

Walk: PGCC
Distance: 9 Holes Golf (@4.5 miles), wee yoga

Call Ciwt Diva, but her two favorite things about her (provisional) return to golf are 1. the great optic
golf balls and 2. her self-permission to pick up her ball any time the hole has stopped being fun for her.

(Even with the optics she lost two balls today).

The Shape of Things --- Day 7/212

Walk: Yuri's Lighting (down and up with lamps x 4), Union Square (Theory sale)
Distance: 5 miles, wee yoga

So, Ciwt has always been a round shade gal

But today, for some unknown reason and prodding from a local lamp/lighting expert, she added a couple of curvy shades to her lampshades.  Cute? A little Matissey?  Hope she comes to like the switch.

Guilt-free Gripper --- Day 7/211

Walk: Cinema Club (The Guilty), PGCC
Distance: 3 miles, bucket of balls, small yoga

Attention Mystery/Thriller Buffs: Just a couple more weeks and it will be at your theater!

This morning Ciwt's Cinema Club screened The Guilty, a Danish movie guaranteed to wake up even the sleepiest attendee. From the moment it begins you realize you need to listen to every word, every sound, every expression of the superb actor who is on the screen in close up from beginning to end.  Gripping without being scary, intelligent, deep and totally comprehensible with nice, clear, easy to read subtitles.  When did you last see a truly masterful cinematic thriller?  It is coming!!
