The flowers waved at me the other day, I had a bunch of crows come and visit me as I sat outside too. I tried to catch a picture of the spider that was hiding in the corner – he was the size of a half dollar. He refused to let me get his picture – must be camera shy. I tried talking to another bird, but he didn’t feel like talking. The bluish-black buggish fella was getting quite agitated with me trying to take a good shot of him buzzing around. He kept chasing me off flying around my head. It was funny. The sun glowed at me this morning, prancing in the sky singing something about sunshine. (images below)
I am not sure what is going on with movies from my past popping up, but on Monday night, I discovered Meet Joe Black being on while flipping through the channels. It was another that I owned and liked very much. I have not seen it in years. Though it is a rather slow going flick, I was intrigued by the story line. I am a fan of Anthony Hopkins anyway. I have not watched TV in so long that I am kind of remembering why, normally there is nothing on. However, I have been enjoying watching these recent revives awaking my spirit. They are stirring memories – mostly of me alone watching movies for hours. I used to do that when I would go in movie loops. I have not been able to do that in so long – just sit and watch a movie in quiet.
Anyway, I watched SALT too. Sometimes it is nice just to watch some spy flick, but only if the main character is a badass woman. I was addicted to the La Femme Nikita series when it was on. (Not the current version that is out – I have no desire to see that one.) I cannot recall when, but at some point, I did watch the movie that it was based on Nikita. Yes, I even watched Point of No Return because I thought Bridget Fonda would make a horrible Nikita character type. I had to see it for myself – I guess to prove that I was right? It was not all that bad – out of all of them, I prefer Peta Wilson’s character the best. Um… no idea why I went into all of that.
See what happens when I watch movies! The memories of the movies pull open memories of my life. These are enjoyable things to watch for me. They made me happy. I am assuming my brain is trying to pull up some “happy” chemicals on its own to make me find balance. Go brain, go!

“Given To Fly”
He could’ve tuned in, tuned in
But he tuned out
A bad time, nothing could save him
Alone in a corridor, waiting, locked out
He got up outta there, ran for hundreds of miles
He made it to the ocean, had a smoke in a tree
The wind rose up, set him down on his knee
A wave came crashing like a fist to the jaw
Delivered him wings, “Hey, look at me now”
Arms wide open with the sea as his floor
Oh, power, oh
High.. wide, oh
He floated back down ’cause he wanted to share
His key to the locks on the chains he saw everywhere
But first he was stripped and then he was stabbed
By faceless men, well, f**kers
He still stands
And he still gives his love, he just gives it away
The love he receives is the love that is saved
And sometimes is seen a strange spot in the sky
A human being that was given to fly
