Much like how I’d recommend Ratatouille to anyone who loves food or loves to cook, anyone who loves music DEFINITELY have to see this movie.

As for the rest of you, you’ll have to see it.  It’s a magical film.  So simple and yet so beautiful.

And yes, I am going to learn to play Falling Slowly.  🙂


Not much going on here over the Southern California “storm watch”.  Yeah, the 3 systems of storm that came our way?  Not all that impressive really.  But hey, we had the rain we need.  And I got the perfect excuse to coop up in the house all weekend.  Hehe.

I have come out of the funk somewhat unscathed.  Thank you all for your kind words and support.  It’s just strange how things creep up on you like that.

I think it’s started with me wearing mom’s favorite hat during these cold days.  Then the planning of Honolulu trip with dad is a bittersweet journey.  A family trip to Hawaii has been talked about our whole life to see Ray and his family.  And now here we are, just me and dad accomplishing what the family has wanted to do for 30+ years.

And finally, it was something else that stirred the emotions together.  Perhaps a delayed mourning.  A grief that has been pushed away too long.

Just like this California storm, it was slow to arrive, linger a while with light rain and days of gloom.

And as slowly as it comes, it’s making its way out.
