I indulged once again this year in what I have come to think of as a night of shallow revelry...commenting, with three women friends, all of us sprawled in my TV room, on various gowns (what's with the to-the-navel cleavage? Do we need this?)..and then, because I had thought MOONLIGHT a brillliant film and rooted for it, I turned the TV off in disappointment when they announced LaLaLand the winner. And so I missed the drama. Darn.

And I also missed the thank-you speech (for LaLaLand) by producer Marc PLatt who not that long ago had lunch in my kitchen (long story. Another time.)

I do love movies. Thinking about them, talking about them, watching them. Occasionally, when I have been asked If you hadn't become a writer, what would... I reply that I would have become a filmmaker. Screenwriter, editor, cinematographer, director? All.

Last night, on the recommendation of a friend (thank you, Phyllis) I found an Iranian film called ABOUT ELLY on Netflix. Using a complicated procedure that we seem to have mastered pretty well, Howard watched it with me. (We get on Speaker Phone, coordinate our Netflixes, find the film, and click PLAY at the same time (watching the minute/second counter) and somehow manage to get them showing simultaneously.) It was ironic, having just seen the same Iranian filmmaker, Asghar Farhadi, win an Oscar for THE SALESMAN, which I have not yet seen ... (and he was not there to accept it, protesting  the immigration ban....)

This is a scene from ABOUT ELLY, in which the sea---its seduction, its relentlessness-- plays a powerful role. It made me think of the wonderful scene in MOONLIGHT when the man (Mahershala Ali, best suporting actor...YAY) cradles the boy in the ocean, teaching him to swim...teaching him so much more.

When I am writing fiction, I tend to see it play out in my head, like a movie. Camera angles, lighting, the whole thing.

And I must go back to doing that right now.

knows my temper, family and economic situation, but she also knows that she is unable to change her mother's idea, and the key is that she still has some idea that the bride price should be given. I told her, do not worry, I have a way. Soon, to her home, meet, handed a gift, chat . her mother kind and shrewd, father steady and loving. Soon two days have passed, we should go, then the time should come. The last dinner, her mother spoke: 'small D, you have been here for 2 days, we are still very satisfied with you.You are a good child.If there is no accident, I hope you can this year (new year You have to talk about what time to do the ritual? You discuss it, and your family to discuss it, okay? Yes, we side of the customs you may not clear, I do not know A Yun Satsuki to You did not. ' I immediately catch the topic, smiled and said: 'Thank you aunt, uncle, Satsuki and I said.' At this time I see A Yun's face has changed, watching me afraid to death. Yes, the last paragraph do not mess up. I smiled and let her be at ease. 'Auntie, uncle, your feelings I understand, raising daughter is not easy, say only one daughter, I think 150,000 if Bibi put, not too much, or even not enough. The money we should give. 'I think A Yun also told me the situation at home Cheap Nike Shoes For Men two old people, and I think so, not necessarily appropriate, you two first listen. '15 million should give.However, I think since I work, I have their own strength, and I marry A Yun, and you also feel that I am fit, then the 15 million should be given by me, not my home to. 'You and A Yun fancy people, should not only need to have 150,000 at home, but also have the ability to have the ability to bring happiness to the future of A Yun.I think I have this ability. I myself not only have 15 Million, and should prove to you that I have the ability to A Yun happy. 'I have only one request, that is, I do not have a long time, two years. We are still small (A Yun 2 years younger than me), late marriage is also okay two years later, I will come up with 150,000, and will To prove to you that I and A Yun have the ability to live the happiness. In fact, that night my language is Air Jordan Size 14 far better than my words, because there is love in my heart, I touched her home all, A Yun's face flushed. When we go, his family is very happy, of course, perhaps only the surface is, but at least his mother acquiesced to my request. Of course from then on, I feel there is a huge mountain pressure in my heart, my life has changed. After returning to Shanghai, my mood is not low, but a kind of war came calm and excited. My heart secretly determined, for my love, my future happy life, I have to pay several times more than others efforts to achieve my promise. I am eager to do so, and believe that I will be able to succeed. Yun is very worried that she and I said that we can not move together, life can save some, she and I save money. I refused her. Although we have long ago the skin of the pro, but I do not want her family to know that this is not good for her. And I do not want her to save money, after all, I said, this is my thing. I know a girl, life, clothes, cosmetics, etc., how to spend every month to say about 2000 or so. I said, Yun this time I may not be able to buy you a lot of clothes and cosmetics, and she solemnly nodded. Discount Nike Womens Shoes I do not know if I will regret this decision later. I started looking for other companies in the market. But the reality soon disappointed me, it would be impossible to get a monthly salary of more than ten thousand yuan a year. How to do? I decided to resign. 8. hardships Since it has proved that this road nowhere, and then leave is a waste of time. My time is running out. And I think that if they resign, there is a big chunk of time, to contact more deeper society, the opportunity is more corresponding. Aun does not agree, she said it was so unstable. I can not convince Wholesale Nike Football Boots her that she can not persuade me. I still do this thing, I know, can only drift. Before leaving and the boss talked about once, please forgive him. Also told me the situation part of him. We talked very well. The boss is very sorry, so I may also come back to work, I also reluctantly, but I have no escape route. I started the experience of roaming around the beach, riding a broken bike everywhere in Shanghai, everywhere to find a limited acquaintance, asked if there is no project to do. I have more than 12,000 dollars around, I feel you can support half a year it I think this six months if there are planning projects to do, I will be hard to put all the things to do their own, should be able to earn a 2 to 3 million, do a few projects than the work better. Oh, if the friends who I had the same idea, today I will advise you do not! Later thought, I am too confident of the too anxious, and should be working while looking for opportunities, the time is dry and then dry, or 99% of the sea is drowned. I went so far in the wind, ran for 2 months, a list did not run, plus one lost the bag, lost more than 1,000 dollars and mobile phones.
