Wednesday 3

This spoke to me because I am ready to leap. I waited for a long while, but I think, if I can muster the courage and maybe have a little final shove, then change is near. It is about time I act and brush away my self-doubt.

1. I almost finalised my novel. The format and ISBN are sorted, I just need to revise one last time to get rid of the pesky spelling errors that fly under the spellchecking radar

2. I made pizza from scratch, yummy

3. I rediscovered how much fun writing can be. I am a good writer. I really am.

4. Chatted with an old acquaintance

5. Was asked about my opinion on a new track by a musician who follows me on Twitter. I was honest and kind.

6. I accepted something to come to its end, even though I would have preferred it to continue.

7. I am struggling a lot with myself these days, but I will get there. If I could only allow myself the same kindness and care I offer freely to others.

8. Music. Braver and Stronger was my song of the day (see post). Song of the night:

Glen Hansard – Leave. From the motion picture “Once”. There is so much emotion in that song. I like Glen’s music a lot. I saw him live once and it was the first time I shed a tear at a live gig. He played this song:

Bird of sorrow from the album Rhythm & Repose (2012)

9. It is okay to fail. It is okay to have flaws. It is okay to show emotions (not only write about them…)

10. Goodnight. xx

reality bites

Awful penmanship

U2’s All I Want is You was featured in the movie Reality Bites (1994) directed by Ben Stiller. I love(d) this movie to bits and watched it many times over. The soundtrack is amazing too. I had a big crush on Ethan Hawke and Winona Ryder as a teenager. And still love to watch them act. Though I admit, I did not watch Stranger Things with Winona.

I am not sure why I was reminded of that film just now, but I was. I guess I will have to watch it again soon. Maybe I will watch this one and Cameron Crowe’s Singles (1992) in one sitting. 😏😊
