I'm in a bit of a slump. My camera is in the shop for 6 to 8 weeks (that means no nice pictures of Chicago in March :(
My home computer is still busted - well, I should clarify that by saying my monitor is still just plain broke so I have to rely upon begging the Bear for use of his laptop or hunch sideways over the old SyncMaster tv-sized monitor I borrowed from a friend which is too big to fit on the table so it is placed strategically on a little table between the real TV and the old computer desk. My neck hurts just thinking about it.
Anyway, I saw a movie over the weekend, called "The Bucket List". It starred Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholas, and I have to say it is the best movie I've seen in a very long time. I don't do "the movies" often - but we got in on a $6.00/each matinee bargain show. Of course, the two actors are worth seeing no matter what the movie subject, but in this case, the two veteran actors played out a story whose story line touched me deeply. The title of the film refers to a list one would make of "everything you want to do - before you kick the bucket". Anyone who has either been in the hospital themselves, or had a loved one suffer through the process will appreciate much of the poignant sorrow, as well as the cleverly mixed humor thoughout the story. It made my day. All I can say is go see it. I know you will be glad you did.
