A Ghost Story

I saw the new movie, A Ghost Story. I wanted to love it more than I did, but I liked it. It’s strictly my problem. I want answers about life and death, but who really has answers?

For this reason, my favorite parts were the very very brief times when the ghosts talked to each other. It was the sharing of confusion, and lack of answers, that touched me. It’s really all we have (I have). The ability to share our need and uncertainty.

Bodhi on my lap. I miss my kittens. They are back at the ASPCA, getting neutered. A process that takes two and a half days, the ASPCA way. (24 hour med check, procedure, 24 hours to check the healing.). They’re going to forget me and Bleecker!

  1. Of course you miss your kitties! They could never forget you, I’m pretty sure you’ve imprinted on them as “mama.” 🙂

    Have you read “Lincoln in the Bardo”? Supposed to be a good book about these life and death answers/ghosts, and I love George Saunders, but I haven’t gotten it read yet.

  2. I visited them, and they seemed very distracted, less bonded, but we shall see once they are home again. I hope they also still get along with Bleecker.

    Lincoln in the Bardo sounds perfect for me! And George Sanders is a lovely, great person.

  3. Well, they have just had surgery. I know I’m not myself after surgery–especially when being visited in the hospital!! 🙂 It’s good they’re getting them all taken care of and watched closely for the diarrhea, although I know you miss them. They’ll be home with you again soon and all the bonding will still be there. Hang in.
