Today's reason for crying:
(Because I cry all the time, you know—I'm a very sensitive person, all right?)
I cried at the end of this documentary I watched called "The Agronomist".
It's about Jean Dominique. And his (unsolved) murder that took place in 2000.
He was a human rights activist and radio personality (whose career lasted for about 40 years) in Haiti.
Unfortunately Haiti is the kind of country that isn't safe for folks to openly question the government…
So, no doubt that Dominique was murdered by people with ties to the government.
I'm surprised he lasted as long as he did actually.
So, I cried at the end.
It was sad.
And here's a photo of her in front of the poster for the documentary:
"The Agronomist" was directed by Jonathan Demme, who directed "The Silence of the Lambs" and "Philadelphia".
(He also directed "Stop Making Sense", that Talking Heads concert movie. I liked that movie. And I was surprised to find out that he made that since I also really like "Silence" and "Philadelphia".)
In other news…
My stomach feels all oogy.
And my head hurts because it smells like paint thinner in this apartment.
(I think they're doing something somewhere outside. I dunno, I feel like dying.)
And tomorrow my plane leaves at 8AM for JFK airport.
I haven't packed.
And I haven't gone to my storage to look for a warm coat.
Nor have I gone to the thrift store yet.
Fortunately it's supposed to be in the 50s when I arrive, so if I don't go today, then I'll see what I can do when I get to the humongous apple.
