Inspiration From August Rush

by Lindy

LOVE the movie August Rush.  The story, the music, the characters – especially Jonathan Rhys Meyers.

August Rush is centered around music; a classical musician hooks up with a rock musician and they accidentally create a musical genius in an evening of passion.  The two lovebirds go their separate ways and fail to reconnect.  The baby boy becomes an orphan as the mom recovers from a hit and run accident, thinking that her baby died in the accident.  (He was actually released to an orphanage by the father of the mom.)

Through confusion and confinement, the orphan boy follows his instincts to find and  reconnect with his parents; mastering every musical instrument he comes in contact with.  The happy ending occurs when he conducts a symphony in an outdoor amphitheater where his birth parents find him and each other.  It’s beautiful!

The moral of the story: keep pursuing what you love.  Never give up on your creativity and drive to create.

 


Video: How to Speak Norwegian

This guy, Galstrim, is an excellent Norwegian  instructor.  He makes me laugh without even trying.  Best letter of the  Norwegian alphabet: ‘L as in Lullaby!’


Random Page: Letters on Life

by Lindy

Here is an excerpt from a random page in Letters on Life by Rainer Maria Rilke.

Why Do I Write?

  1. Because I’m a jerk.
  2. Because I want the boys to be impressed.
  3. So my mother will like me.
  4. So my father will hate me.
  5. No one listens to me when I speak.
  6. So I can start a revolution.
  7. In order to write the great American novel and make a million dollars.
  8. Because I’m neurotic.
  9. Because I’m the reincarnation of William Shakespeare.
  10. Because I have something to say.
  11. Because I have nothing to say.
