Every human creature is a profound secret to every other.
I'm grateful today that I had a babysitter for Sophie and and thus the opportunity to drive to the west side and watch an early screening of Ralph Fiennes' movie The Invisible Woman, the story of the great Charles Dickens' long and secret love affair with a young actress. The movie was perfect to me, lyrical and literary and beautifully acted. It was so romantic that I sat in my seat when it was over and cried. I was transported. Here's a trailer, but if it comes to your town or city or farm or wherever the hey you live, and particularly if you're a Ralph Fiennes lover and especially if you love movies about longing, regret and everything that is beautiful about being alive, you should go see it.
- I'm grateful for my strong and healthy constitution.
- I'm grateful for the card that Ms. Moon sent me of the Airstream trailer on the beach that now graces my blog and that is testament to our friendship.
- I'm grateful for the opportunity to go to the movies on a Saturday afternoon, especially when it's a perfect movie about love, longing, regret and is directed by and stars Ralph Fiennes.
