Been really busy! Want to post a review, but no time! No time! (hence the fragmented sentences)
Therefore, 2 questions to ask you:
1 – Any good foreign films you guys have enjoyed? I’m a sucker for the foreign film… Or, any black and white film that you enjoyed? I love those too.
2 – Any one read Sophie’s World by Jostein Gaarder? Thoughts?
And, since it’s Teaser Tuesday:
“Old Pentaquod, realizing that he would not see his daughter again, summoned her two sons, and holding them by the hand, even though they were grown now, walked to the shore and called after the departing sloop, ‘Tciblento! What shall we do with your boys?’ But she was gone, gone from her tribe forever, and the boys would somehow be absorbed, and they would wander bewildered with the rest of the Chpptanks, and in the end they would be hunted like deer and slain, and the needles of the pine would cover them. Oh Tciblento! The old man wept, and when the geese departed from the river his spirit followed.” (pg.139 of James A. Michener’s Chesapeake)
I’ve read it before, now I’m reading bits and pieces again.
Now, back to working on things that have deadlines…
Thou Nature, art my goddess; to thy law
My services are bound. Wherefore should I
Stand in the plague of custom, and permit
The curiosity of nations to deprive me,
For that I am some twelve or fourteen
Lag of a brother? Why bastard? Wherefore base?
When my dimensions are as well compact,
My mind as generous, and my shape as true,
As honest madam’s issue? Why brand they us
With base? With baseness? Bastardy? Base? Base?
……I grow, I prosper. Now, gods, stand up for bastards.
One of my favorite passages in a certain play and one of my favorite sympathetic villains…
