saturdaynote



Besides “wholly flourishing” this week (below), I spent six hours over two evenings living in and writing to the film “Rachel Getting Married,” which I’d seen when it first ran, mid-October 2008.

This time, thanks to streaming, I could dwell with the fate of a princess as ensemble performance filmed in documentary style, minute by minute.
If I push the documentary pretense into seriously pretending that the story really is happening—not a script being performed—some fascinating issues arise from odd aspects of the story that, I bet, weren’t supposed to be surmised. A rich sequel story could be written, dealing with how those odd aspects are prescient of what is to happen within a couple of years.

Anyway, the fake documentary style is enough fertile landscape by itself for discursive play.

I want to have more to post by next weekend, but I need to do work for the other website, which I’ve neglected for months. I’ll at least have another “saturdaynote” here, Jan. 7.

loving north of La La Land



So I said (with Mick): Be expert craft in a world that accepts itself—authentic striving at home with kitschiness, scripts we write, scripts
we inherit.

We can trust in our career dreams with our love, finding a way to make them flourish together.

Reconciliation transcends, but so does devotion to making things work.
