Surrounded by Grace

I decided to go see "Eat, Pray, Love" tonight on a whim. It started at 7:10 and I left my house at 7:01. I went in to buy my ticket and saw the person in front of me was Jocelyn. So, we sat together and then ended up standing in the parking lot talking about art for almost two hours after the movie.

I enjoyed the movie, but the book was better. Of course, much of the book is about introspection, which is pretty hard to bring to the big screen.

One thing that stayed with me from the movie was when they were talking about being "Surrounded by Grace." That's something we all experience every day, and yet take for granted. I'm going to make a conscious effort to be aware of that.

I'm feeling a little down tonight because I'm missing Kansas Dialogue. I've gone for the past few years and I love visiting with people there. When it was time to register I thought I'd need to be at the Cosmosphere this weekend for the play. But, as it turned out I didn't need to. But, by the time I knew that it was more expensive to register for Kansas Dialogue and I couldn't justify spending the extra money. So, I'm staying home this weekend. I'll just have to enjoy it vicariously.
