It's 100 degrees and everyone's wearing shorts to watch the movies of the Short Film Fest. The festival runs until Monday.
The films I saw were mediocre at best--poor technical quality and not-so-very-good acting. There was one exception--an animated short--that was ingenious about rodents running after each other around the world. At the end, the camera is drawn back into a scene of them in real life in their cages.
Funny thing about that short film--it's not mentioned in the program. Go figure that one out.

Joshua Tree National Park is close to Palm Springs, about 45 minutes away. So far it's been a cool spring. The flowers are blooming and so are some of the Joshua tress. If you visit the area don't miss this park.
