Continuing with posting three positive things in my life (Day 1 and explanation). Actually, everything I’ve been posting have been about things I appreciate in my life. Still, I guess I could stretch appreciate into positive with this slender thread of a definition from Merriam-Webster:”. . . thinking about the good qualities of someone or something.” There!
- My “lucky cat” figurine. It’s perched in front of the leaded-glass window near my front door with beckoning left paw raised. Maneki-neko, literally “beckoning cat,” is a common Japanese figurine (lucky charm, talisman) believed to bring good luck to the owner.
- Gloria (2013): An award-winning movie set in Santiago and centered on a free-spirited older woman (sheesh! she’s in her late forties), and the realities of her whirlwind relationship with a former naval officer whom she meets out in the clubs. Paulina Garcia’s the star. Fabulous. The movie is subtle, understated, well-acted, no wham bam American slick. Loved it.
- Raw salmon. With fresh ginger, wasabi and soy sauce. I have it at least once a week. Cooking ruins salmon for me.
