Daily Thoughts 11/15/2009

Today has been a quite steady day. I have taken some time to write down some thoughts so I can clear my head. I sometimes take the time to write my daily thoughts down so I can sort through what I am thinking about. It helps me organize things before I speak to people.



I also will take the time on certain days to write down everything I plan to do in the coming days and sometimes week to clarify what I plan on doing. It is not just enough to write down what you plan on doing, but also how you feel about the things which you plan to do. Intuition is very important before taking action. It is easy to act in haste without thinking.



I watched a bit of Dangerous Days: Making of Blade Runner. This dvd is about how the movie Blade Runner was created. The title of the movie comes from a William S. Burroughs novel, Blade Runner A Movie http://www.fantasticfiction.co.uk/b/william-s-burroughs/blade-runner.htm . The screenplay is based on Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep by Philip K. Dick. If you look closely you can see the influence of Moebius the comic book artist and Heavy Metal the magazine. The documentary is very interesting. It is part of 2 disc set, Blade Runner The Final Cut which was released in 2007.

Thank you, Richard D'Bury. I appreciate your view of my blog. It is nice to hear from a library in Buenos Aires in Argentina.

There has been an explosion of excellent writing and music from Latin America recently.

Our library serves a very large Portuguese and Spanish speaking population.
