I have been doing stuff, both before getting sick and then during/after it as well. The thing is, I haven’t quite felt like writing about it.
I went to a Bill Cosby book talk. It was mostly about his new book called “Come on people: On the path from victims to victors”, but he was his usual charming, funny self as well. The message is simple, but inspiring. We need to recover family values and give our youth a sense of pride, to be able to better themselves in the future. Parental involvement is urgently needed, strong discipline and authority is required, and fathers are in demand. There is hope, but we need to start from the basics, and we need to start today.
I also went to see Atonement and Juno. Both good, and thought provoking in different ways. In Atonement I left with a feeling of sadness and thinking “now that wasn’t fair”, but also with a sense of possibilities that love could be that strong and last even through distance, war, and death.
Juno, also conveys faith in love, the kiddy kind, the first-time-love you feel while in school. It’s about making tough decisions and doing what is ultimately right for everyone. The music is excellent, highly recommend the soundtrack.
This weekend I went over to my friend’s Sebas and Meibell for home cooked paella. Sebas outdid himself and made an incredible paella with all the goodies in it. We had a little wine, a little dessert and a lot of fun conversation.
I’ve rested a lot, slept a lot, and read a little. I feel like I have the sparks of good ideas bouncing in my mind, but can’t seem to pin them down or get them out in any real remarkable fashion. I’ll be back when I have something interesting to share. In the mean time, my fortune cookie reads: “Sometimes even love shows a re-run.”, so there you have it.
