Docent Thoughts….

After each docent weekend, I usually receive either an email or a phone call from our volunteers. Here is the email from one of volunteers from last weekend:

Hello Linda,

We got back last night after a blissful time on Patos. 
You’ve done a great job setting the lighthouse up to be a very rich experience. I know you’ve worked with others to accomplish this and to all I am very appreciative. 
 
We had 90+ visitors over the 3 days – and all were enthralled. I was sure to tell the story of you and your friend, reading the book at 10 — and manifesting the dream all these years later.
Really, it was wholly magical, Thank you!
Interesting to note that these volunteers experienced quite a rainstorm on Friday night….this didn’t seem to dampen their spirits. I guess Patos Island is a magical place, rain OR shine!
Another docent perk: Sunsets like this!

Midnight in Paris

David and I watched “Midnight in Paris” last night. I was so eager to see this latest WoodyAllen film that I would have bought it, except that it was not out on DVD ’til yesterday. It was #One on our Netflix list, so there it was in yesterday’s mail!

I am inserting a link to Roger Ebert’s review. It contains the big spoiler of the (whole) movie, so if you haven’t seen it or heard about it don’t read it right now.

As for me, I have been waiting for a movie that is not just set in Paris, but stars Paris….my favorite city on earth. I often wonder about this…why it is my and so many others favorite city. It it situated on some kind of magical vortex or something, like those “Mystery” houses we used to visit on family vacations? Well, let’s just let it remain a beautiful enigma.
