FAVORITE POEM: “The night is dark / the stars are high / a disembodied custard pie / is floating in the sky . . . “ p.?
FAVORITE TOPIARY: The bunny rabbit. (snow covered Topiary Garden in Lakeville MA)
LEAST FAVORITE CHARACTER CONNECTION: I couldn’t get the actress from the movie out of my head until it said in the book she was blonde. That helped me knock image out of the visual.
INTERESTING WEATHER CONNECTION: Thankfully, I had finished this before Winter Storm Nemo hit but the heavy snow and high windy conditions sure reminded me of Hallorann’s drive up to the Overlook Hotel. (That’s not a spoiler, is it?)
OK, I’m now ready to watch the movie in its entirety. Has anyone seen the 1997 version with Rebecca DeMornay and… our awesome STEVEN WEBER?!?!
