The Two Hundred and Forty Seventh..

Number Two Hundred and Forty Seven:
Avalon, Dinner, Skillet Seared Beef Teres Major

One of Lisa's Alma Mater pals from Mount Holyoke College, documentary filmmaker Sonali Gulati, screened her touching and wonderful new film at VMFA called "i am". A nearly full house viewed this great documentary "a film that chronicles the journey of an Indian lesbian filmmaker who returned to Dehli, 11 years later, to re-open what was once home, and finally confronts the loss of her mother to whom she never came out to." It was an interesting study to me on the human condition, how being gay, no matter what your culture, deals with a lot of the same issues and conditions and fights around the world. Engaging, emotional and entertaining. Well done!

After some enlightenment, it was time for some nourishment! Avalon definitely seemed the way to go, and sure enough it was. Our pal Stephen was working, who came by to chat with us while we ate, just to say hi, and the other waitperson, the blonde woman, who is also very nice, waited on us while we watched the first seating of people leave. Good stuff on a Friday night!
