What Work Is, Part 10
I am also working on an application to an arts colony. I need time away to write.
Last night we went to see "Stardust," the fairy-tale style film by director Matthew Vaughn, based upon the graphic novel by Neil Gaiman and Charles Vess. The cast includes Michelle Pfeiffer as an evil witch, Claire Danes as (literally) a fallen star, Robert De Niro as a pirate who loves to cross-dress in his spare time and Charlie Cox as the questing hero. As improbable as that all sounds, it is a good film, very much worth seeing.
I mowed the grass yesterday afternoon; a much larger task than it sounds. Everything once again looks nice, but I am still feeling the effects.
