I don't want to start off the week with a blog about poo at the top of the page. Not attractive or genteel. And, no matter how amusing I try to be, someone will likely always give me crap. [Pun intended.... LOL]
I so wanted to see the eclipse last night but it wasn't to be. We've had so much rain here the past few days that the clouds overhead completely obscured the sky. There are plenty of videos online, and some of my Facebook friends even got photos of it.
Eclipses always signal big change, if you follow astrology. Here's how Cancers are affected by last night's eclipse, according to Astrology Zone: "The September 27 full moon lunar eclipse in Aries will bring your mind back to the other theme of the month - work and career. This eclipse will be more emotional, but nevertheless, does have the potential to be quite exciting and positive. You will see something end or culminate. The news you get now will let you plan with greater certainty."
I don't really wholeheartedly endorse astrology as a belief system. I'm more just fascinated to see IF anything in it rings true. I am hopeful, though..
I met my friend Bronwyn for lunch yesterday at Hudson Grille, where Michael now works. It was great to see him hosting so well, looking very professional. I got a hug on my way out, too.
It was great to see Bronwyn and catch up. When I had to go to the hospital in May, Bron came over to my house and stayed with Mother, and cared for her, which helped me tremendously. She's the type of friend you can always count on in a crisis, and those folks are rare. She never wants thanks. She let me buy her lunch and give her some books, which is totally inadequate, but I tried.
Bronwyn is an example of the type of dear friend that makes me glad to be here in Atlanta, where friends and family members abound. I can't really imagine living anywhere else.
Michael and I watched a terrific movie last night, Aloha, the latest movie by Cameron Crowe. I really enjoyed it. I wrote a review of it this morning. I hate that the critics didn't like it and it didn't do well. It should have been lauded. Most films today are so superficial and calculated, and Aloha is, despite some minor flaws, so much better than most of the idiotic films out there. Crowe's films always have great dialogue, too. So go watch Aloha.
Finally, a photo from my cousin Mark Embry, who recently vacationed in Jekyll Island, one of my favorite places. Love Spanish Moss.
