Several hours ago I composed an elaborate blog post. It was stunning. Awards were coming my way no doubt! No, I did not accidentally delete it, however, you still don’t get to read it.
Not much more than and hour later it hit me. My post is NOT working. I created a chaotic mess. The written equivalent of that handmade crochet blanket. That one you must
lug around from home to home cherish forever because it was made, with love, from the skein remains of Grannie’s last 47 works of art. Fortunately, the words can be reworked.
– Take 2- Action
During the week I pay close attention to my energy level. I’m at my most active between 10:30- 1:00pm. Like clockwork at 2:30 my plug has been pulled out. Knowing that sleeping curled up in my cozy bed is best, sadly it does not always pan out. On comes the television.
Another round of brainlessly watching Netflix or HGTV shows that don’t really interest me. This is not how I should be spending my time.
I’m not going to take up crossword puzzles or read sections of SW’s unabridged dictionary; I’m sticking with TV watching. TV watching with direction.
I’ve started a small, manageable list of 10 American classic films with the criteria: I have not watched the film before; and it is on one of four (one, two, three, four) online lists I deemed credible at 4:27am 8-days ago.
Here goes the 10:
- Breakfast at Tiffany’s
- Citizen Kane
- Gone with the Wind
- The Graduate
- Miracle on 34th Street
- North by Northwest
- Singin’ In the Rain
- Some Like It Hot
- Wizard of OZ
Slowly I’m working through them. A few are great, and others not so great.
What ranks high on your list?
Thanks to my public library I can view the Classics above for free. Lucky me!
