In truth, I didn’t tell him my story. As I listened, I noticed that it wasn’t a big deal to me. I observed my ‘ah so’ attitude and then chose what to do next. First I stopped in at the Dollar Store where I decided that I didn’t need a package of six sponges for the kitchen or a glass shaker for ptarmigan cheese. Then I drove the fifteen minutes back to the cottage where I read, ate, and napped before returning for the afternoon showing.
As I write this, it occurs to me that all that sitting and being from the deck is paying off. What better proof than being in the NOW right in front of a movie theater.
P.S. I’m glad I saw Les Mis. The music is phenomenal, Hollywood is Hollywood, I loved the play. Go see for yourself.
