Window Gazing --- Day 11/5

Walk/Jog: Presidio, Vogue Theater (Rear Window)

Distance: 4.5 miles, Yoga

So this afternoon Ciwt revisited Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window, the only one of his movies to win Oscar for Best Picture.  With its outstanding screenplay and cinematography (both of which also won Oscars) and legendary cast including Grace Kelly and Jimmie Stewart in one of his four Hitchcock films, it has stood the test of time.  In fact with social media and all the current privacy issues and debates, you could say it is even more timely.

Unfortunately it also brought Ciwt back to the days a few years ago when she was recovering from a knee accident.  Hour after hour she would sit peddling her stationary peddler and looking out the window.  No murders, no Prince Charming, no screenplay - just peddaling.  

But today she's out and about, and breezing off to Hitchcock classics, so all those tedious hours were definitely worth it,
