Tomorrow (May 6) marks 50 days since March 17, when Masses could no longer be celebrated publicly. This past weekend, Fr. Andy Turner celebrated Mass at St. Noel. I was especially grateful as to his ready willingness, as I was beginning to get over an eye infection, shortly before we were scheduled to film. All seems to be on the mend now, thanks to the doctors and staff up at For Your Eyes Only, Willoughby, who only happened to re-open last Friday, May 1. So grateful!
While I was resting with one semi-decent eye open (attempting to redeem myself from “Tiger King”) I re-watched “The Tree of Life” (2011). This film is described as “an American experimental epic drama,” film-written and directed by Terrence Malick. It chronicles the origins and meaning of life by way of a middle-aged man’s childhood memories of his family living in 1950s Texas, interspersed with imagery of the origins of the known universe and the inception of life on Earth. It runs 2 hrs 19 mins (PG-13).
Happy Cinco de Mayo! Seems like a good-enough reason to offer, for those who might be interested, Drink #2: Cherry-Lime Margarita, recipe courtesy Food Network Magazine (May, 2020). I took Spanish in middle and high school. Hola, Sra’s McCann, Thomas, and Fellure! My Spanish name was David (da-VEED). Again, as always, enjoy responsibly!
