The Adventures of …

Cute way of being reminded of childhood adventures and books.

The White Angel

November 29, 2011

The White Angel (2007) – a movie about family values, cultural diversity and life of elderly people who have nothing much to look forward to but death. Powerful acting.

The Ultimate Gift

November 28, 2011

The Ultimate Gift (2006) – one of the best movies in terms of plot, play and message I have seen lately. A series of gifts – the gift of work, the gift of learning … and ultimately – the gift of love. “Any process you are going through will get tougher before it gets easier. That’s what make learning a gift”. Come up with a dream and act on it or help others fulfil theirs. The art of life – to get the message.

Pear delight

November 27, 2011

I am not a big fan of pears but this one was irresistible – stewed in wine, served with chocolate and tasty cream. A real weekend delight with the impromptu company around.

“There are only ten minutes in the life of a pear when it is perfect to eat.” In the photographed one there were less 🙂

The bird out there

And via a friend: “Some can see the sadness behind your smile, the love behind your anger and the meaning behind your silence.” Few. Enough though. Lovely bird(s) out there…
