What’s worth potential long-term knee damage? Running to and then around the Chestnut Hill Reservoir. It’s 2 miles to get there and 1.57 miles around. Depending on how you’re feeling, you can add or subtract loops. Keep your eyes on the path. You might stumble, almost down the incline and into the water… I’m staying at a friend’s place in Brighton, MA for the spring & summer. There’s a porch and a futon. Zero pets. Inside, regardless of how warm the day gets, the apartment is always cool and dim.
I saw some movies at the Boston Independent Film festival last week: This is Martin Bonner, Much Ado About Nothing, The Way, Way Back, Here One Day and Some Girl(s). I linked them all because none of them were terrible. Maybe I’m easily pleased by things on large screens. (Such as Iron Man 3.) Bonner and Here One Day are the two that stuck with me the most (now, a week later and despite odd editing issues). I hope they end up on Netflix. Go watch them.
On the writing front, I have a draft of something about 35k words that I’m sending out now. I’m moving on to a shorter thing (15k words) that I’m editing into a better draft. I haven’t written a truly short thing in over a month.
