I enjoyed reading “Chicken with Plums” by Marjane Satrapi. And if you haven’t read “Persepolis” yet, add it to your list.
The movie Imaginaerum came in from Finland. I’ve watched it three times, in English and Finnish. If you’re a Nightwish fan, it is a must see. The movie was visually appealing and the story’s structure fascinated me. It wove together the story of a severe dementia patient and his daughter.
I finished my tenth journal. This marks the end of a period where I relied on lined notebooks. I’ve started using a Flexi-Sketch sketchbook for my next journal. Charlotte’s story was drafted in a Flexi-Sketch, as will my next novel.
I’m glad that I’ve worked as a copyeditor. Since then I reread everything I write.
I received a Bamboo tablet and played around in Corel Painter.
I finished reading “Moomin Book One: The Complete Tove Jansson Comic Strip” by Tove Jansson.
Mymble: “Lie on the bridge and watch the water flowing past. Or run, or wade through the swamp in your red boots. Or roll yourself up and listen to the rain falling on the roof. It’s very easy to enjoy yourself.”
I watched the movie “Howl.” I’m glad that I read “Jack Kerouac: A Biography” by Michael J. Dittman, because it was interesting to see what Ginsberg thought of Kerouac. The music was done by Carter Burwell, one of my favorite movie composers, and the compilation of the poem with interviews and court transcripts was fascinating.
