Poem for Saturday, The Handmaid's Tale, Great Falls

Not Speaking Of The WayCollapse )

Busy Friday -- took Maddy to Subway then to an appointment, went for a walk in Woottons Mill Park while she was there, came home for a few hours to do chores, then took Maddy to work at California Pizza Kitchen, where we met my parents for dinner. Now we're watching the first three episodes of The Handmaid's Tale, which is everything I'd read -- superbly acted and really well filmed, not a letter-faithful adaptation of the book so much as a horror story for our own time (I like the Richardson-Dunaway-Duvall movie but it cuts and compresses a huge amount of material and invents other parts for a convenient resolution that the book deliberately lacks). Here are some photos from Great Falls the other day:
