Aah - Mary Oliver.
And now a mini-review since what I've mostly been doing with my time when not working is watching Netflix.
The Queen's Gambit is fast paced, intriguing, and well done. We meet our flawed heroine as she emerges from a car wreck caused by her mentally ill mother. As the show progresses, we flash back and forth in this girl's life as she goes to an orphanage, learns to play chess from the janitor, goes to a foster home, and works her way up in the chess world.
Alcoholic, brilliant, a young lady in a man's world, and flaunting conventions. Who knew chess could be this exciting? I highly recommend this short series. I binged it in a weekend.
The Home Edit is a fixer upper type of series and it's fun. Two ladies working out of Nashville will organize the heck out of your closet, garage, or pantry. In thirty minutes they work magic for some lucky "normal average" people, or they are organizing Reese Witherspoon's (she's a producer of the show) costume room. I watched this show and had two trips to the Container Show. It's organization porn - addictive, fun, and creative.
Last Tango in Halifax - this has been a PBS series, but I'm catching up with it on Netflix. What a soap opera - only it's classy with British accents. And you can't go wrong with Derek Jacobi as Alan. Such a good actor. But long lost loves reuniting, step sisters sleeping about, one choosing lesbianism, out of wedlock babies, deaths, and more all while drinking lots of bottles of wine or pints of beer. Good acting, fast paced, and plenty of story lines - Last Tango will keep you dancing in life and wanting to visit Halifax. Lovely countryside.
Have a good weekend everyone.
