firstly some music!
and now some poetry – intermingled with flowers that we took yesterday on a walk with who-we-are-in-RL for her birthday.
Spring is like a perhaps hand
(which comes carefully
out of Nowhere)arranging
a window,into which people look(while
arranging and changing placing
carefully there a strange
thing and a known thing here)and
changing everything carefully
O Sweet Spontaneous
O sweet spontaneous
earth how often have
prurient philosophers pinched
,has the naughty thumb
of science prodded
often have religions taken
thee upon their scraggy knees
buffeting thee that thou mightest conceive
to the incomparable
couch of death thy
them only with
e. e. cummings
birthdays are getting easier and easier.
they used to be (almost) unbearably painful days for reasons we cannot divulge but which had (occasionally) nothing to do with us. the passing of time can be (if one lets it) be pregnant with regret or awful deeds OR – and here’s where we return to the sunny channel once again – they can be a deep but quite lovely Sigh about Everything that’s happened and what-is-about-to-happen-next and gosh-did-that-really-happen and did we get back to LosAngelesAgain (yes!), is who-we-are-in-RL now An Author (hurrah!)
in the meantime, there’s always mr. Mozart to wave us into a springtime of deliciousness…..
isn’t Monday always filled to the brim with potential?
we. think. so.
do you recall when we went to visit Richard at the Natural History Museum gardens?
well who-we-are-in-RL wrote a piece for the lovely Los Angeles, I’m Yours which just went live a few hours ago (not a Column – this was more of a deliciously expanded News Piece – which in Newspaper speak used to be called NIB – news in brief – but we – well – it’s Not Brief, put it that way but it is News-y)
the rest of our day?
oh it was lovely.
plenty of blue skies and palm trees and feeling Uplifted
and then we went to see Unfinished Song (which is called Song for Marion outside the USA – not sure why the Americans wanted to be all metaphysical about it – they usually like a nice direct title – maybe Marion, the name, didn’t “test well”, love)
if you can see this transmission in your territory it’s very affecting (not affected – affecting – as in Engendering Feelings – yes – we W E P T in the cinema, in a very good way).
and may we say how beautiful Mr. Terence Stamp still looks? – his performance is wondrous. truly.
why yes – we Did write about it more Fully – for the Huffington Post in fact –
isn’t life delicious?
especially on days that look like this………… *sighs*
how was YOUR monday?
Is Mercury Still Retrograde?
that explains a Lot.
team gloria has a meeting this morning that we are, shall we say, rather apprehensive about.
so bring on the “happiness” playlist full of optimism and a throw your hat in the air, lady, devil-may-care-ness. damn, we wish we (still) had pale pink ruffles and cowboy boots to rock that olivia newton-john look (but we might scare the immigration attorneys ;-)
