Have a wonderful day, and enjoy the pictures!

 

So sorry I missed yesterday – I am fighting a cold and melted under its assault. No hero, me.

On a very significant personal note, I saw (and roped in 5 family members!) for Thursday’s showing of They Shall Not Grow Old. It was something I will never forget seeing on the big screen. It was a limited engagement but it looks like the documentary will get wider distribution and I cannot recommend anything more highly – see it!

Watch the trailer, remark at the young wasted and yet valiant from 100 years ago. I felt a duty to see this on the big screen and I encourage you to go, do the same. It’s not as grim as you may think, and wow, the transition from traditional B&W(shaky, fuzzy footage) to enhanced shake-free color with sound and incredible depth of field. It was like the transition in the Wizard of Oz, but even more, so much more. I gasped – on the big screen in a theater with high-quality sound, it was amazing. From there, you begin to really connect to so many young men, it’s overwhelming. Just wow. See it.

Have a good weekend, everybody – frolic with a light mind cuz things will get funky in the new year!

So today is especially great – in your own backyard, and awesome. I so love the colors of lanterns and such nighttime illumination. It can be an entire language to a stranger in the dark.

 

 

Have a great (Boxing, or normal) day everybody!
