Somewhat cynical, I went to see the remake of "Murder on the Orient Express" adapted from Agatha Christie's book of the same name. I grew up with Agatha Christie, her books a respite for a child filled with curiosity and desire to problem-solve. Not surprisingly then that law became a first career. Kenneth Branagh, a...

And the heart remembers too! 🙂 ~ FlorenceT
Here's the soulful voice of Gregory Porter. "It's probably me" was first released in 1992 through a collaboration of Sting, Eric Clapton, Michael Kamen and the incredible saxophonist, David Sanborn.

Vulnerability and strength, two words not commonly associated with each other until recent years. Vulnerability tends to be perceived as weakness rather than strength. And how often have I had to remind myself in the candid moments, in the times when being true to myself seemed a betrayal, when the tears flowed and the heart... Continue Reading →
A song for you... I came across it for the first time when it was recently sung at 2016 The Voice Australia 'blind' audition. Made Jessie J, a judge on the panel cry, and me too. A song written by Bob Dylan and this version released by Adele in her '19' album in 2008. Enjoy!... Continue Reading →
Checklists are dangerous. I cannot recall, and therefore I am disavowing, ever having a checklist for "the man of my dreams". "Tall, dark and handsome" wasn't a thing for my teenage self.

A walk down memory lane… wow, I had forgotten how gorgeous he is! Let me begin in the mid-80s. Oops, showing my age. I was a teenager, born and bred South East Asian and exposed to British and America pop music culture. Even then, I had a fascination with rock, soul and jazz and as... Continue Reading →
