Last night Christopher took me to the late showing of Serenity. He said to me "I think you will like it...you are sort of a science fiction chick." Huge compliment from the husband.
Tis true I once had a love affair with one, Ray Bradbury. The Veldt is my favorite short story ever. To me, Bradbury is a prophet and an author. I can envision his weird stories coming true. Couldn't you see some fanatic parents buying a home with a techno nursery that changes scenery from brain waves? Stephanie said that New Jersey parents are that way. I believe it.
All this to say that sometimes I think science fiction is more real than non-fiction. It's all about perception and now I sound like Madonna as of late.
I also have a great respect for the Druids. A favorite topic to study with my students is the origin of customs and traditions. Today, for example, we studied Halloween. It was a real pleasure, a good way to pass six hours of your day and I am not kidding.
Thank the Druids for pumpkin carving, trick-or-treating and costumes. And not to spoil the upcoming holidays, but they pretty much OWN all of the Christmas traditions as well. Creative pagan creatures those Druids.
I think they might be that lost tribe that some people say are living under the ice caps in the North. Blah, blah, blah doctrine I don't understand, blah, blah, blah.
Hopefully I am part Druid.
"Mom...am I part Druid?"
Unless they had something to do with Stonehenge - that place creeped me out.
By-the-way I really liked the movie. In the end there was this intense cameo by a familiar actress, Sarah Paulsen. On the way home Christopher and I were trying to place her. Thank heavens for IMDb. She was in a tender episode of Touched By An Angel with my angel, Christopher. (Thank the good people of Japan -we are still getting residual checks from that episode). Touch By An Angel in Japan-now there is some good sci fi.
