MY FRANKENSTEIN EYE!

Still my retina-peeled vitrectomy eyeball is healing. The air bubble is shrinking and my vision is coming back, but there is still a haze, like a London fog, as I look out over the bubble, which is a dark orb with a corona like that of an eclipse––I have a dark and dying star in my eye.
Another visit to the retina surgeon on Tuesday will hopefully bring happy healing news. And as of today I can finally get the eye in water––I can wash my hair after 8 days. YAY!!!

My eye a week ago right after surgery...

 
THE RAVENMASTER!
by
Christopher Skaife

FASCINATING STUFF!

Discover more about the book here:

Legend has it that if the Tower of London’s ravens should perish or be lost, the Crown and kingdom will fall. The Ravenmaster’s role is serious indeed, and after decades of serving the Queen, Yeoman Warder Christopher Skaife took on the added responsibility of caring for these infamous birds. In The Ravenmaster, he invites us over the tower’s drawbridge to watch as he feeds his raven’s ox-hearts and dog-biscuits soaked in blood, protects them from foxes, and ensures that these unusual, misunderstood, and utterly brilliant corvids are healthy, happy and ready to captivate the three million tourists who flock to the Tower every year.

With my ONE EYE (retina-peeled, vitrectomy) and FACE DOWN, I just watched a great doc streaming on Netflix. A MUST WATCH for Kubrick fans and especially fans of the very intense and overwhelming process that filmmaking (on any level) is.   When making a serious movie, you're either in...or you're out.

FILMWORKER
"Leon Vitali was a rising British television actor when Stanley Kubrick picked him for the role of Lord Bullingdon in Barry Lyndon. That first encounter with the famed auteur proved decisive — he swiftly resolved to devote the rest of his life working for the director, this time behind the scenes, and took on just about every job available: casting director, acting coach, location scouter, sound engineer, color corrector, A.D., promoter, and eventually restorer of Kubrick’s films. Tony Zierra’s affecting documentary profiles the devoted “filmworker”—Vitali’s preferred job title—as he enthusiastically recounts his days with the notoriously meticulous, volatile and obsessive director. The experiences brought both tremendous sacrifice and glowing pride. Filmworker celebrates the invisible hands that shape masterpieces, reminding us that behind every great director, there is a Leon Vitali."––Telluride Film Festival

MY RETINA-PEELED VITRECTOMY EYE!

The surgeon said all looks good in my invaded eye, except for a bit of extra bleeding she wants to stop. So I now have 3 different drops I will be taking, 2 of them 4 times a day. I'm also currently blind in my eye until the air bubble for healing eventually dissolves and my retina becomes hopefully better. So I am a one-eyed wonder for at least another week. Uhggggg...

Good news is I only have to wear the big patch at night when 'trying' to sleep, if at all possible. And I have to continue the face down position until Monday morning. I revisit the surgeon bright and early on Tuesday morning.   So...back to being miserable for now.
