I hope that as you are reading this email the sun is out and you're staying dry. What an incredible month we have witnessed! It is officially historic, and I hope you are all well.
For me, one of the side effects of all the rain this month has been an increase in movie consumption. Good - bad, action - comedy, new - old, Netflix - Redbox, I have seen a lot.
What's bizarre is that I have seen so many movies in a month that I am used to seeing beautiful people in unbelievable situations because, hey, that's Hollywood. If George Clooney, Sandra Bullock, Matthew McConaughey, and Jennifer Aniston can encounter improbable personal trials, what does that mean for us regular folks?
Whether it's getting lost in space, leading a gang of organized crime, or getting rescued by superheroes, these beautiful Hollywood folks sure do find themselves in unimaginable circumstances.
I've seen so many of these stories in the last month, however, that I am having a hard time differentiating beautiful people in movies and beautiful people IRL (how the kids say "in real life" now).
I saw a gorgeous woman picking out tomatoes at the grocery store this week and instead of thinking about saying hello (which I wouldn't have had the courage to do anyway), I thought,
"Oh no. Someone is holding her beloved sister and mother hostage for a ransom, and now she has to go about living her daily life so she doesn't raise suspicion. She is an emotional wreck inside as she waits for the police to try to solve this kidnapping. But, soon, she will have to take matters into her own hands and employ an arsenal of automatic weapons to do the job of saving her family herself, Linda Hamilton style in
So, yeah, anyway...I need to get outside soon. Let's hope for some summer sun and some outdoor activities in the near future.
See you soon.
