This year February has been a month full of fun for me. And hopefully for others as well. This month, I spent a lot of time with many dear friends. We shared moments from our lives, created and tasted new meatless recipes, and enjoyed Sunday morning breakfasts at Cora’s.
Some of the most interesting and fun experiences were participating in the CineClub. The CineClub came about last December, when I suggested to a couple of friends that we should start a book club. One of them said, ‘What about a movie club?’ I definitely found the idea interesting and we all agreed. We are meeting once a month and so far we saw three movies. How we do it? Each CineClub member takes turns and picks a movie they like to share with the group.
On the day of the showing we get together and the movie that was picked gets introduced to the group. Before we start watching, the reason for choosing it – without giving the movie away – is revealed. At the end of the viewing, the even more fun part begins. We discus what we liked and not liked about the movie, how it affected us, and we search for and share facts about the actors, directors, and how the movie was made. We clarify the story line, discuss what the directors tried to convey and if was successfully accomplished. Fun, Fun, Fun!
I went into the CineClub with an open mind and I give a great level of attention to any movie we watch, even if it ends up being a movie that I would never picked myself. That’s why things are getting more interesting and fun for me. The movies I see with the CineClub group stay with me more than any movie I have seen previous. I love the memories we are creating!
And the memories of spending time with dear friends are always sweeter in the cold winter months, especially when we get to share warmth, kitties, good food, drink, and chat. This is why I decided to call this month FUN FEBRUARY.
Anything stands out about how you spent your February?
