Splash, there goes another one.

I have begun to feel that makers of filmed fiction--TV or movies--believe that Kate Chopin's The Awakening is like The Ring somehow, or the literary version of the Monty Python Killer Joke. If I see a character in a movie or on TV reading The Awakening, I feel sure that they are toast, and usually they are, but this is not actually a good thing. Books are not nearly that directly causal. Books' effects are complicated. Look into it!

In other news, I am not quite a week into the Official Rest Period, and it's being interesting mentally if not yet physically. So we'll see.
