I've recently decided not to commit to any particular blogging schedule. I know that bucks all the "rules" for a blogging "platform," but I'm nothing if not a rule-breaker (except for real ones). I'll definitely be posting once a week, and more likely twice, but only when the spirit moves me.
Say what you will about Mr. Costner's acting ability, but Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves is without a doubt my favorite movie of all time. I remember watching it right after its video release; I was an impressionable young lass around the age of 5 or 6. Even then, I knew it was something special--if only I could get past the hand chopping scene in the beginning!
Don't worry, I was exposed to K.C.'s shiny white butt at that tender age: I just closed my eyes during the scary part (only later did I realize the butt scene is a scary part).
What I'm trying to say is
ROBIN HOOD HERALDS FALL.
Oh man. Tell me that picture doesn't make you want to frolic in those leaves, heart fluttering with the anticipation of things that can only be discovered beneath red and gold (not blood-stained doubloons).
I'm barely keeping my head above the revision waters, and I think I'm about to go crashing over a waterfall. Possibly with rocks at the bottom.
Something I've seen repeatedly but have yet to internalize is the wise advice to give yourself breaks during the revision process: work on something new, indulge in other hobbies, watch movies that inspire.
I can't exactly say why I love Robin Hood so much. Maybe it's the woods, maybe it's the season, maybe it's just the legend--I don't know. I've literally watched it over 100 times, and for me that's saying something. But every time I watch this movie, I take away something wonderful.
Now tell me I'm not alone. What's your go-to pick me up?
