Let's go with: a light in the dark.
Because Kat and I went up to Oliver to watch Cave of Forgotten Dreams, the first in this year's Oliver Film Club series. Kat's parents got me the tickets for my birthday, which was very thoughtful.
The rest of the day was spent finishing off the garden prep for winterizing, running errands in town, and attending our election worker training session. Election day is November 19th, and it's looking like it's going to be a long one.
There were certainly plenty of flashlights slashing through the dark caves in the movie, but sadly that's not where the prompt idea came from.
You see, the movie had a rather fascinating subject matter (incredibly old cave drawings discovered in France), but with a running time of an hour and a half there was just too much... wasted space, I suppose. In fact I'd guess that there may have been, grand total, about ten minutes of interesting footage.
Sprinkled very sparsely throughout.
So, by the time the credits rolled, I had come to think of those moments as lights in the darkness.
The darkness of Boring Town.
Hopefully the next movie in the series gets us back to Enjoyableville.
