I hope I take as much from life when I’m 50 as Jodie Foster seems to have. If you thought her speech was confusing at first (as did I) that’s because we’re not used to hearing people - interesting, free thinking people - speak in the rhythm of their own inner metronome. That was inspiring.
So true. Once you got into the cadence of it all, it was a really touching moment but will be fraught with cynicism from those who refuse to get it.
We are all hanging in there! Trying to find a new normal and new routine. We are going on day 6 of no power but some signs of life have sprung forth. We are using genny the generator for the time till the gas runs out and there were tree trimmer crews on the street. Things are coming to light abouty sisters house. The kids have lost all thier toys including Caroline’s beloved Lego Friends sets and Colin’s stuff. They currently are sharing the iPad with games and are generally kept in the dark about how bad it really is. But it’s hard for them to understand. Some of my sisters co workers bought them clothes since all were destroyed. It’s hard to fathom how to start over.
