Time Off

It was so warm out today, I kicked the cats out of the basement and they happily soaked up the winter sun on the back porch.

We sat in the dark movie theater, the credits scrolling on the screen.  Jon and I rarely read the credits after a movie is over, but even if we decided to this time, they were all in Spanish.

“Why are we sitting here?” Jon asked me, even though he had made no move to get up either.  I didn’t answer him right away, then said it was because I still had the feeling of the movie inside of me and I didn’t want to leave that world just yet.

It was like waking up from a wonderful dream, and not wanting to open my eyes knowing once I did, the feeling would begin to fade.

For about two hours I felt as if I was living in the gentle, quietly painful, and colorfully tinted world that Pedro Almodovar had created in his movie Pain and Glory. It was like being emersed in beauty.

After meeting Ellen in the parking lot of the Library in Rupert Vermont and giving her the two quilts I made for her, Jon and I took the day off.  I knew I wouldn’t be able to keep myself from working if we stayed home, and the movie was only at the theater for a few days, so it worked out just right.

Tomorrow we’re going to an Inn in Vermont to spend the night.  Then I’m planning on taking the rest of the week off.

I’m not sure what that will look like.  I imagine I’ll take some pictures or a video I’ll want to post or maybe even want to do some writing or clean up my studio.  I hope to take a long walk in the woods with Fate too.

But I also might decide to skip a day of blogging, I want to keep that option open too.  I guess I’ll just have to wait to see what happens.
