Hi, friends and readers:
Last night, a friend and I watched a film titled Beautiful Boy. It’s a sobering story about addiction, starring Timothee Chalamet and Steve Carell. Most movies I see these days don’t grab me emotionally, but this one did. The acting is superb and the story is so realistic. And the northern California setting is lovely. I recommend it highly.
I slept in late again, this morning. I’ve been doing this ever since the switch last week to DST, and I guess my body clock is all screwed up. Plus, I think I am subconsciously stressed out over the trip I depart for on Thursday. And let me explain about that, since I don’t want those of you who visit here daily to worry about me.
Thursday, I fly to Santiago, Chile. I’ll spend two nights there before boarding a cruise ship in San Antonio, Chile. Then I’ll spend 15 days cruising the Pacific coast of South America and Central America. Two friends will be with me, but I’ll have a private cabin with a balcony to myself. I’m excited as hell, but nervous too. I always am when I venture into something unknown, but I know I’ll be okay. I’m a seasoned traveler.
It’s quiet on the island today, as the sky is overcast and the Spring Breakers aren’t mobbing the beach like they normally would. I got all my work in the house and yard done yesterday, so I’ll take things easy.
Have a nice Sunday, everyone.
