A Movie, a TV Episode, and some Music You Could Enjoy with Good Wine

Splintering Flowers

Here in North America, all our summer plants are on the way out, but even the ones in their last throes of beauty can bewitch – like the photo I took above on my iPhone at a local park. They looked so surreal – as if lit up by neon lights, despite being chipped away by winds and cold!

Other moments of joy? Read on!

Singing away in the kitchen to this song – and even though I don’t know the words, the melody lets me really wail! “Dearly Departed” by Shakey Graves performing on Conan:

 

Saw a fantastic movie this week called “Rudderless” – one of those independent movies released to a very few theatres but also on Pay Per View at the same time, lucky us. It’s directed by one of my favourites, William H. Macy, and stars Billy Crudup as a father dealing with the death of his son through his music. The acting is very good, but the music is amazing. So I had to download the soundtrack. We’ve been talking about this movie a lot in our house!

 

Wow – the new season of “Super Soul Sunday” has been incredible. First, Elizabeth Gilbert and this past week, one of my inspirations, Pema Chodron, was Oprah’s guest. Such a down-to-earth woman for such a prolific writer and teacher – watch the full episode here.

 

Now for my wine report... Imbibed a fair bit over Thanksgiving, and I give very high marks to these delicious wines, that were fabulous with the Big Turkey Dinner:

And, finally, as per usual… drawing, painting, sketching have given me great joy these past few weeks. Check out the latest over at artwewonderful.com.
