Hi Croix et al
Ah, the sound of a purring cat. Nothing more relaxing and peaceful, unless it's not intended as a relaxation. I've heard they have 2 types of purrs, one when they are feeling swoony and the other when they're cranky. I think I've learnt to distinguish between the 2.
Sitting next to a fire place sounds wonderful. (A little jealous actually.) Never gets cold enough here.
Yes, the flute is beautiful DB. Unfortunately I had a bad relationship with it. I could hear every wrong note, every bad timing. The harder I practised the worse it became. Had I known then that it was anxiety, I could have probably done something. Anyway. I love listening to it, including California Dreaming (Mamas and Papas), as well as Pink Floyd. I used to jam along while listening to their LPs. Loved the works of James Galway too. Bolero, well definitely unable to play sorry Croix. But it is awesome, extremely powerful. I have seen it performed and it truly evoked lots of emotions.
Also Manu Chao. Aren't they the best!! Have 2 of their albums. Clandestino and Bongo Bong.
Theatre Croix, oh yes! Loved the local theatre companies in a few cities I've been in. Always supported them by going to their productions. Not musicals though...ugh. Can't stand them. Drama, comedy - all okay. I remember going to see Hamlet and there was a work colleague in the cast. Shakespeare is funny from my perspective. During the performance you'd hear me LOL. Well, the next day my work colleague gave me what for, about my laughter. He wasn't too bad about it and truthfully I didn't care, because to me it was funny.
Since I arrived back in the city I'm living now, I've not been to a production. Correction, local theatre company production. Saw a Cat on a Hot Tin Roof at the city's major theatre. Just been too busy. Haven't had time to organise myself to get to a local production. Hopefully I make time for this in the future. Always loved them.
I'm absolutely sure i've seen Mona Moi. Hilarious. I'll have a look at the Worth1000 site. Sounds good.
Isn't Amélie just one of the best French movies you'd hope to see. Exquisite, very poignant. Have you ever seem Smilla's Feeling for Snow? Loved it! Read the book too - beautiful thriller story set in Copenhagen and Greenland.
Photography of Vivian is truly special. Such a social history and story she captured through the lens. I try to make some of my photography artistic, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Depends on how I am that day.
