Moon Like a Peach
Hunter's Moon for some, and the Blackberry Moon for others, as noted in a previous blog entry that uses this same lovely still life painting by Jonathan Koch. (Thank you, Jonathan!) For some, it's the Kindly Moon!
I saw Cloud Atlas this weekend because I couldn't help it--a noon matinee. Loved seeing it in a movie theatre, despite the loudness of the speakers, because it is meant to be a spectacle. I was moved, despite the cliches. I pondered this later, thinking, hey, a whole huge bunch of people will feel affirmed by the cliches, even if I cringe a little at their utterance. In a way, of course, it fits the character(s) who speak them. Example: fabricant born to serve in fast food restaurant who then reads all of human history off floating computer screens. See what I mean?
