Beasts of the Southern Wild this weekend. It's been nominated for four academy awards; one of them is for Best Actress by Quevenzhané Wallis, who is only nine years old. She was indeed amazing, but the movie... I still don't know why it has garnered so much acclaim, since I found it to be rather confusing and really depressing. It's about a young girl who has lost her mother and is in the process of losing her father. The movie is told from her point of view, and reality and fantasy mix together in a way that confused me until I figured out that many of the scenes were in her mind. If you see it, let me know how you felt about it. Maybe it was just me.
In any event, it's nice to be getting back into the swing of my regular life, and it's REALLY nice to be able to hear again. I've got three books on my plate and will be getting involved in reading them any minute now. Thursday is my first hike in three weeks; fortunately it's rated "moderate" so it shouldn't be a problem for me. It will be so nice to be with my friends again!
