Sabbatical

This will be my last post for the year, as the capricious complexities of the real world demand my immediate attention now and for the immediate future. I write this post to preempt any feelings of guilt my 'blog neglect' may have otherwise engendered. I hope to be back in January.

A quick digression to prevent this post from being more than a mere note. Having recently watched 'Eight Below', a film about a bunch of dogs in peril, I was struck by how much more empathetic I was towards dogs in such situations on screen than I typically am towards humans in similar situations (on screen). Maybe it's just me, or maybe it's this particular film - which is very good by the way - but I found myself genuinely concerned for the well being of these canine protagonists.

I'm going to put it down to the film being an excellent piece of storytelling, but I wonder...

I've heard good things about Eight Below, and like you, I find myself empathising far more with animals than dogs in most movies!

See you around in January, have a good holiday!

See you when you come back. I don't always leave a comment but I do check you daily.

Holiday? Aahahaha... I wish!

If I find the time I may rant about something before January, but most likely not... :D
