Nomadland (2020)

I can’t decide if this is more cautionary tale of planning for retirement.
Or a perverse love story to a woman who looks lost and unable to find peace after losing her husband, her life, her community.
Did the upheaval of everything she knew lead to a life on the road? Was the view an escape hatch she leapt through when she has nothing else?
It’s a beautifully shot film filled with trauma around every corner. A collection of people fractured by life and events out of their control.

Ground Rules for New Bloggers

Good advice here. Especially about creating ground rules. Make some rules for yourself. It’s easier to make decisions when you can ask Past You what you did last time. If you have a rule not to blog about breaking news or gossip, then it’s easy to refer to it when you’re tempted.

Ground rules are important for who you let in. This is your blog. Your space. Your little corner of the world. You don’t have to give a voice to anyone in it you don’t choose to. You’re not a politicians having to win favor. You’re not a company worried about making payroll or earnings reports.

You’re a person. Or people.

You decide.

You make the rules and can change them when it suits you. If something isn’t working, change it.
