G'night Lucas

Evani's not here, she's helping prepare for a Candomblé that is happening on Sunday. So I'm doing the Dad thing. Lucas got tired, and I asked if he wanted to watch a movie- he said he wanted to watch 'my' movie. The only 'my movie' I had upstairs was Powaqqatsi, which I figured would be a terrible choice for a bedtime flick.

Boy was I wrong. When I watch it, I get all overwhelmed and depressed by the poverty and multitudes and dying cultures and human exploitation (hey, kinda like living here!) but when I saw it through Lucas' eyes, I saw beautifully filmed long shots with lots of slow motion and a soothing soundtrack. A true visual lullaby. He lasted maybe ten minutes.

I'll have to remember that.
