That Old Cape Magic

Leave a comment

magicI had such high hopes for this one, and it really let me down. That Old Cape Magic revolves around Griffin, a college professor who is hurtling through life haunted by the past. Despite his loving wife and daughter, Griffin is obsessed with trying to please his parents and has inherited their love for the Cape. His childhood continues to overshadow his adulthood, especially after both of his parents pass away. It goes sooo slow in the beginning and middle, but picks up a bit towards the end when his daughter gets married. Ugh. Just didn’t get this one. Not one for the books… hehe.

I did find a couple interesting quotes: “Some stories, even ones buried deep in memory and the subconscious, had a way of burrowing up into the light, of demanding conscious attention, until you had little choice but to write them.” ::: “Odd that the future should be so difficult to bring into focus when the past, uninvited, offered itself up so easily for inspection.”

Sorry it’s been a little quiet around here. Things have been getting pretty crazy stressful with the move and the goodbyes, but all that aside, I’m excited! I will be even MORE excited when I find a place to live. Needless to say, “everything will be fine” is my new mantra for the week.

PS – This is my 100th blog post! Wowza. Thanks for following along. ♥
