Daybook entry #13
Outside my window ... it is freezing cold, windy and most significantly - cloudy! No sighting of the transit of Venus for us today.
From my picture journal ... the lovely Delbard rose, Paris 2000.
I am thankful for ... my daughter's first full day back at school in five weeks. She has been suffering significant pain from a bowel complaint, and is still not out of the woods, but I think we have turned a corner.
I am feeling ... somehow melancholy, perhaps not helped by the weather, or the following:
I keep watching ... this film clip by Goyte - visually engaging and haunting at once.
I am listening to ... Pink Floyd's 'Wish You Were Here'. Not really a fix for melancholia :)
My ironing DVD this week was ... 'Romulus, My Father'. Oh my! A beautifully shot Australian film about the unconditional love between a young boy and his father. One of those films I feel privileged to have seen for its beauty, but not sure I could watch again for the anguish!
Hopefully my next post will be a little more cheery. If you'd like to share how you lift a bad mood, all suggestions will be thankfully received!
P.S. Guy Sebastian's 'Like it Like That' just played automatically on my iTunes. Things are already on the up :)
