“I heard a Stock-dove sing or say His homely tale, this very day; His voice was buried among trees, Yet to be come at by the breeze: He did not cease; but cooed–and cooed: And somewhat pensively he wooed: He sang of love, with quiet blending, Slow to begin, and never ending; Of serious faith, and inward glee; That was the song,–the song for me!” William Wordsworth Quotes , Source: O Nightingale! Thou Surely Art

Sharing this love letter… it maybe my fresh start to take time to blog again…oh how I miss WordPress and its warm bloggers 😦
To infinity and beyond…..
“Beyond the East the sunrise, beyond the West the sea,
And East and West the wanderlust that will not let me be;
It works in me like madness, dear, to bid me say good-by!
For the seas call and the stars call, and oh, the call of the sky!
I know not where the white road runs, nor what the blue hills are,
But man can have the sun for friend, and for his guide a star;
And there’s no end of voyaging when once the voice is heard,
For the river calls and the road calls, and oh, the call of a bird!
Yonder the long horizon lies, and there by night and day
The old ships draw to home again, the young ships sail away;
And come I may, but go I must, and if men ask you why,
You may put the blame on the stars and the sun and the white road and the sky!” -GERALD GOULD

You brought me back to Victor Hugo’s amazing novel and carried me by your songs and able to let my kids see and hear the exceptional story and it’s music and right now it is not only I who appreciates it but also my boys. My kids was surprised to see Hugh Jackman (Wolverine) and Anne Hatchaway (Princess Diaries and Ella Enchanted) to a much higher role. 70th Golden Globe Awards “Les Miserables” was named Best Musical or Comedy and won acting honors for Hugh Jackman (Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy) and Anne Hathaway (Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy)
