The Circle Game

Belle to neighbor, the Countess Batory, 6 August 2007
When you think of it, could you please return the pickle recipe to me (my only copy)... Also, have you seen the film, The Double Life of Veronique, directed by K. Kieslowski? That's what I was watching (actually, for the second time that week, with the audio commentary on) during my tomato project. What a beautiful, haunting film. I think you would love it. The opening images are of mothers telling their very young daughters, one in Poland, one in France, to look, look closely at the wonder of the universe, of nature. The whole film is about looking beyond the surfaces of things, finding connections, following clues, looking, listening. It's really wonderful.
