I have not yet gotten any real work done. Instead, I watched a movie with Russ, something he bought because he'd seen most of it once, and thought it was wonderful. He knew I'd love it.
The movie is called Paulie, and it's about a far too intelligent parrot and his quest to get back to the Marie, the little girl who had been his friends. In the end, it is a wonderful quest story about love, over coming fear, and perseverance. And maybe about acceptance, as well.
Now I have to go face my writing with this wonderful story in my brain, and all of my stuff is going to look dull and unimaginative after the movie.
