Do I go? Do I stay? Does it matter anyway?
I began writing that poem over 2 weeks ago. It’s still not finished, but it resonates more everyday as I debate whether I should or shouldn’t attend Belleville IL’s first ever film festival!
My sister thinks I should visit my cousin in Jacksonville, FL because it is closer and a much safer drive for me (she feels). Of couse she doesn’t realize that I don’t know the route to Jacksonville, FL or where to go once I arrive. But… I DO know the route to Belleville, IL — I’ve driven it enough times — and know exactly where I’ll be going once I get there.
I can understand her concern. Actually I’m concerned myself because I’ll be driving alone. (Wish I could take my dog with me, but can’t.)
Anyway, here I sit pondering — worrying maybe — if I should attend or not. The festival is September 30; so I’ll be deciding by this Wednesday.
To paraphrase the campy ’60’s “Batman” narrator: Tune in tomorrow. Same … time. Same … channel!
