Good things so far this year

  1. Film: rewatching Good Will Hunting with Matt Damon and Robin Williams. Williams won an oscar for his role as the troubled shrink to Damon's wastrel genius. A truly wonderful, empathetic film. Williams was put on earth to play certain films (this, Dead Poets, Good Morning Vietnam, Mrs Doubtfire). The rest of his output has been mostly dire.
  2. Music: Jack Johnson. A christmas present for Rebecca. great album - reminds me of Steve Miller. A true original.
  3. Seeing my niece again - she visited from London for a couple of friends and it was wonderful to see her again. She is 23 and it seems about 7 mins since she was born. None had spent much time here before and spent most of their two days whizzing around the sights. we had a lovely dinner at Senyor Parrelada, one of our favourite places here of which I have blogged before. A beautiful setting and wonderful Catalan food and rock-bottom prices.
