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...

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

This is a song from the "Suddenly Seventeen" movie soundtrack. The Chinese lyrics are poetic and nostalgic!

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

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
And the heart remembers too! 🙂 ~ FlorenceT

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
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 To make you feel my love
