Documentary


Last night I went to a screening of a documentary film being made by a coworker. I don’t think I should say anything about the subject of the movie, since it’s still a work in progress, but it was terrific. Impressive, moving and absorbing.

I’m amazed that someone who works full time could find enough energy to work on such a huge project. That just blows my mind. I barely have enough energy at the end of the day to open a can of soup!

And you have so many cans of soup available to open, too!

I love documentaries, my favorite kind of film. So glad folks are out there making them.

Probably your co-worker doesn't spend a lot of time walking around the city, taking beautiful pics, doesn't go to Zendo, or read books by Paul Bowles, ie. he/she probably doesn't do all the things you do that make your life so interesting and multi-dimensional.

Looks like they should rename it the ROCK of pick up those PIECEs of litter. I'm surprised to see litter next to such a groovy rock

Dude, one of my cousins lives in a tree very close to that cool rock.

I am blown away by people who write 900 page novels. (Shantaram springs to mind)

Try working more than full time, getting your doctorate, AND keeping up with a house, partner and dog! *WINK*

P.S. - I love the pic. How cool is that?

Nice pic Steve. I don't know how people get the energy either. Maybe a labor of love does that to you.

Hey Steve, when is your birthday? Cergie and I are involved in a math experiment (she's doing the math part)
