Okay, I dropped the ball. Consider it a break between the paragraphs or one of those multi-spaced gaps between phrases in some poems. I was actually super sick on an international flight home. Eleven hours, nonstop, with precious few masks that I sneezed into regularly, stealing tissues from the airplane toilet and stuffing them into my pockets before I returned to my seat. The crew took little pity on me. At one point, I did get cognac to put into my tea. So, that’s something.
I couldn’t read, my eyes were so watery and swollen. Instead, I watched one movie after another:
3000 Years of Longing (beautiful, although not well paced)
Bullet Train (2nd viewing, one of my all-time favorites)
47 Ronin (2nd viewing, a treat even on the small screen)
Last Night in Soho (eh)
Lady Bird (eh, although the comment that Sacramento was the Midwest of California resonated)
More poetry tomorrow, I promise!
