My thoughts dressed in someone else's

When the thought of Charles simply deciding to disappear one day makes my eyes a little moisty, I just think like Amèlie did

Nino is late. Amelie can only see two explanations.
1 - he didn’t get the photo.
2 - before he could assemble it, a gang of bank robbers took him hostage. The cops gave chase. They got away... but he caused a crash. When he came to, he’d lost his memory. An ex-con picked him up, mistook him for a fugitive, and shipped him to Istanbul. There he met some Afghan raiders who too him to steal some Russian warheads. But their truck hit a mine in Tajikistan. He survived, took to the hills, and became a Mujaheddin. Amelie refuses to get upset for a guy who’ll eat borscht all his life in a hat like a tea cozy.


Do you have a song lyric or a movie quote that helps you when you're down? I'm thinking that I'd like to write yours down in my diary, a book with thin pages and a sent that reminds me of congac and cigarres ( it's not from this house, it smelled like that in London as well, promise) if you'd like to share.

Exactly the same as my blog title "There Is A Light That Never Goes Out."
And Belle, from what I've read, you are that light.
Much love and many hugs xo
(ps, where about in Australia is your mother? I'll make sure I look out!)

when i was younger and i'd be upset about something, my dad would say to me "calm down. there is always a solution".

when i'm down i remember that, and try to think of a solution, most of the time it helps, sometimes it doesn't.

happy sunday :)

okay i have two and they are both from harold and maude. one is a small conversation and the other is a quote.

Maude: I should like to change into a sunflower most of all. They're so tall and simple. What flower would you like to be?

Harold: I don't know. One of these, maybe.


Maude: Why do you say that?

Harold: Because they're all alike.

Maude: Oooh, but they're *not*. Look. See, some are smaller, some are fatter, some grow to the left, some to the right, some even have lost some petals. All *kinds* of observable differences. You see, Harold, I feel that much of the world's sorrow comes from people who are *this*,
[she points to a daisy]
Maude: yet allow themselves be treated as *that*.
[she gestures to a field of daisies]

and this one.

Maude: A lot of people enjoy being dead. But they are not dead, really. They're just backing away from life. *Reach* out. Take a *chance*. Get *hurt* even. But play as well as you can. Go team, go! Give me an L. Give me an I. Give me a V. Give me an E. L-I-V-E. LIVE! Otherwise, you got nothing to talk about in the locker room.

Music calms me down. But it also does the opposite. It's my fuel.

you've got mail...i know! i'm a loser...it's not deep or painfully romantic, but it makes me sooooo happy.

"Sometimes I wonder about my life. I lead a small life - well, valuable, but small - and sometimes I wonder, do I do it because I like it, or because I haven't been brave? So much of what I see reminds me of something I read in a book, when shouldn't it be the other way around? I don't really want an answer. I just want to send this cosmic question out into the void. So good night, dear void"

great, great, great movie. i want to watch it right now.

Today I think your lovely compliment about my dress is making me feel much better. What a great way to describe it :)

Phoenix said...

ABBA's "Chiquitita" pretty much sums it up - I definitely feel better after that song.

(No judging - my mom sang it to me when I was unhappy as a little girl!)

Wish I could add on the write-up and bring just a bit considerably far much more for the table, but I'am just absorbing as substantially facts as I can in the second.
