I spend a lot of time at the table--reading, journaling, ink & paper testing--and Karma often falls sound asleep someplace nearby.
Often under the table.
Sometimes right under my feet, like last night.
I think she missed me while I was gone to the eye doctor...or the AC was too cool and she just wanted to warm herself up on my feet--ROFL!
No glaucoma! My pressures were still below normal. They want me to come back and get this "opti-something" test done for a baseline, tho. Some newer test that was shown on Dr. Oz, I guess, that shows the layers even behind the eye? Anyways, I'm going back August 4th to have that done. According to this new guy my prescription was a little off and he would have recommended trifocals. My glasses will do okay, but for next time down the road maybe trifocals. (I'm afraid I won't know where the heck to look!) Nice to get good news!
Been thinking about an email I got from Sue in Alaska. She went to a Celebration of Life (funeral) and they had a laptop on the alter so that a couple of people could attend via Skype to see and comment. An absolutely great idea for those who couldn't make it--but it would be quite strange to me, too. Have just keep thinking about that laptop on the alter over the last few days--how much life has changed since I was little. Actually, in a lot of really good ways. :)
You wouldn't be reading this. I wouldn't have gotten that email. I wouldn't be able to read about all your lives or see some of you on youtube. Digital cameras and videos--wow! I think back to the blinding lights of Dad's movie camera, my black box camera I took with to Yellowstone when I was ten, gooey polaroids, flash cubes, and bringing rolls in to be developed. Today I could "snap" (see how old I am) a picture or take a "movie" of Karma and post it immediately if I wanted to. What an amazing world!
Speaking of movies...
I watched Flawless on Instant Netflix last night. I don't know how this movie got past me--LOL! Made in 1999 with Robert DeNiro playing a homophobic retired cop who has a stroke and ends up taking singing lessons to help get his speech back from a transvestite (who actually wants the surgery, so I am not sure what to call him) played by Philip Seymour Hoffman! Both actors I really admire--but, for the life of me, I couldn't picture PSH dressed as a woman--LOL!
HA! In this amazing world, I just looked it up on IMDB here and it looks like it was made in Italy? But it was MGM? Anyways, if you go down below the series of pictures and click on videos there's a trailer. I really liked it. I love movies where people change their fixed ideas. And this one also has some mystery and crime drama. Obviously, not your big box office type movie, but I really enjoyed it.
Supposed to be in the upper 90s, humid, and raining every other day. Our little bit of a cooler spell is dissipating. I don't notice as much when I am closed inside. Even when it was in the 70s there, the humidity was 70-80%. So, I have opted not to open the place up. At this rate it will be fall before I do--LOL!
I have a couple of Netflix movies that should have arrived today--both looked really good. Guess I should head down to check the mail. R&R day today. Hope you have a great weekend! :):)
