“Those who seek beauty will find it.”
(I’m actually not talking about this here meatloaf, although I could be. What a beautiful sight to behold.) But seriously it sounds like a famous quote, right? Maybe the theme is kind of universal so it feels familiar. That’s Bill Cunningham, renowned New York Times fashion photographer. And I suppose it is a famous quote now, since he said it and I’m quoting it. I just love it. I want to put it on my wall.
We just finished a documentary all about this guy. He’s 84. Unlike his subjects, he wears the same blue jacket every single day, and rides a bike everywhere, the better to photograph street fashion. He’s on his 29th bicycle. 28 have been stolen. He never stops smiling.
I felt like the movie was less about fashion and more about how to find happiness, which, for him, is beauty. Beauty isn’t everything, as we all know, but I still really like the idea of finding beauty in everything.
We have watched this documentary before (read Eric’s review here). But we are starting a Movie Club with my brother and his wife, and Eric wanted this for our inaugural viewing.
Heck yeah we’re starting a movie club. We’re also starting a babysit swap. I will have 3 toddlers once a week…but I will have 2 days a week Charlotte-free. Oh yeah. Don’t judge me for being excited about this.
Here’s some meatloaf. It’s turkey! Don’t turn your nose up, it was super moist and delicious. Eric didn’t even realize it was turkey until I told him. And you would never guess that there was almost a pound of mushrooms in it. I love hiding veggies in main dishes, I just feel so sneaky. And this sauce! Roasted-red-pepper-anything has to be amazing, right? Right. It is so good and I want to put it on everything. It’s a good idea to make the sauce ahead of time, because you can, and then you don’t have to worry about doing the sauce and meatloaf at the same time.
