Heartbreak

Only the songs 🙂  and by an artiste I enjoy listening to...from his latest album "oh my messy mind". Somehow this song is fittingly depressing.   and this, ah I'm a sucker for heartbreak songs...   Sometimes we need to tap into these emotions, they make us who we are. ~ FlorenceT   © 2019 … Continue reading Heartbreak

Songs of your life

What fun 🙂 In Ronovan's post, there is a link to a page where you can "find" the #1 hit during the week of your birth...  I couldn't resist. And... well, maybe our lives end up reflecting the philosophy of the top charted song of the week we were born in? Alright, I wasn't born … Continue reading Songs of your life

Music Taste

I have been listening to music and watching a lot of music videos lately, more so than usual. The wonder(?) of AI on social media platform meant I was recommended more music of the genres that I liked. And as I kept following those recommendations, more of the same would arrive. I “discovered” artists I … Continue reading Music Taste

Love, this weekend

Enjoy!   I've seen much more than most Much less than some Took a while to give up a ghost Thought it'd never come I … Continue reading Love, this weekend

I am

This is a song from the "Suddenly Seventeen" movie soundtrack. The Chinese lyrics are poetic and nostalgic! I hope you get the gist from my less-than-poetic translation :-).   https://youtu.be/Tv-3nwFVchM 黑夜而闪耀 我                  Shining in the night, I am 流云却不走 我                  Passing clouds won’t overwhelm me, I am 转眼就开花 我                  Blooming in a blink of an … Continue reading I am

A Star Is Born

What an amazing movie, and it's not just the stars. Big names like Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga do sell movies. As did Kris Kristofferson and Barbra Streisand in the previous production of the same name about 40 years ago (and I feel really old now 🙂 ). And there were 2 previous versions to … Continue reading A Star Is Born

Murder on the Orient Express – review

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 … Continue reading Murder on the Orient Express – review

It’s probably me

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.

I believe in you

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 I believe in you

All My Life

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. Well, maybe tall... Neither was romantic, charming, suave, humorous or tough. I don't think I have a type, but I do wonder sometimes … Continue reading All My Life

Stressed out

Well I have been a little, and though my intellect, my mind tells me to chill, sometimes the emotions and the body react. I hope I am not alone when I say it is so easy, rather unthinkingly to take the stressed out emotions out on someone else. That can happen, don't flay yourself over … Continue reading Stressed out
