Since confession is supposed to be good for the soul here’s mine for today. My wife Bonnie was off work yesterday and I agreed to go with her to see the new Julia Roberts movie “Eat, Pray, Love.” Counting myself, there was four males in a theater full of females. I’m firmly in touch with my feminine side now, and will be for quite a while.
About the movie, the story was interesting but slow in places and the acting was acceptable but a little below expectations. This is all of course from a male perspective. The scenery was beautiful — Italy, India and Bali. I found myself often thinking how I’d like to compose a photo from the current location being shown on the screen. I believe I got some good mental shots.
I spent 18 months in Italy while in service but would love to visit it again one day. I run hot and cold on India — definitely places there I’d like to visit but also many I wouldn’t. The natural beauty of Bali appeals most strongly to my landscape photographer nature.
A few more for the bucket list. I’ve got to get busy checking some of them off.
