Poetry Attempt...

Was a bit bored one day at work, and the weather outside was so nice, makes you wish you were out there in the open, under the sun, near the waves... my office is located quite close to the sea, and the sea with all its colors is deeply fascinating. Anyway, the sea that day was calm and beautiful when all of a sudden, it's colors started changing, it took on this grayish hue and the sky started darkening... and then it was pure chaos. The winds started chasing the waves, the sky above was bellowing at them both, and the clouds started pouring out it's fury (it rained...)
Anyway, I was watching all this and that's why the attempt at poetry....

View at Work

The dazzling blue sky entrances
The glimmering surface below it
Lulls it to a peaceful cozy dream
That sparkles & kisses the shore.
The rumbling ends this romance
As the waves begin to dance & flit
Provoking the winds to scream
Thereby creating earth's musical score.
Eventually the ripples appear to tease,
And the color…

Choir party...

The choir gang back home had a party on August 15th and looks like they had a lot of fun. I miss being part of that choir, it was fun practising every Saturday and trying to make an impression on Sunday's. Here are a few pictures of the fun gang... the gang I miss....
They are playing musical chairs.... here
Grandma cutting the cake....
Kudos to them, for Staying Alive and I hope they flourish and don't let go of their youthful zest.

Movies I've seen over the past few months..

Cinema Paradiso: Now this is an interesting Italian movie. It’s set in a small quaint little town in Italy and it tells the story of a little boy and his passion for the movies… and how he grows up to become a famous director. Salvatore the mischievous little boy befriends Alfredo (the town’s projectionist) and before long the two of them become inseparable. Alfredo becomes sort of like a father figure to Salvatore and gives him advice (dialogues from movies) from time to time. Anyway, so Salvatore grows up into this deadly handsome guy and falls in love with a girl… and circumstances cause Alfredo to lie to Salvatore about this girl. Salvatore believing the girl no longer cares for him is convinced by Alfredo to leave the town and make something of himself. As decades pass, we hear of Alfredo’s death, which causes Salvatore to return home and what follows next is heartbreaking. Salvatore learns that Alfredo lied to him, but you can’t really blame the dead old guy because he loved Sal…

Strangers in the night....

Yesterday was nice, Tonio had the evening shift, so I had the chance to catch up with me... I always enjoy my company. I listened to some of my old cd's and was amazed at my own wonderful taste in music... sang and danced and it's a pity Nameeta wasn't there, she would have taught me some new moves. Anyway, then sat around with old bits and pieces of newspaper clippings to stick in my scrapbook, watched a few Disney music videos which took me back to another era... those wistful days of the glass slipper, the beautiful gowns, the awesome music, the handsome prince's, the spirited princesses, the kiss at the end... Sigh... you never seem to grow out of some things...
Then read a rather cute M&B, called "Mistletoe Kiss" by Betty Neels. And ended the day with custard & brownie... so it was a close enough to perfect Sunday.

Back at work now listening to "What a wonderful world" by Louis Armstrong....
