  2. Two of my favourite obsessions are Japan and spirituality, so "Silence" sounds like it will be right up my alley!

    1. we still have most of the roads closed around the city, but at least it will be above zero tomorrow and most of the snow should start melting.

    2. Above zero. That's gonna feel like a heatwave. Or, it did when we went above zero. Funny how that goes. The other day it was 8 [f] and it felt great. So weird.

    3. yep, it's above zero today and we're swamped with slush and melted snow and water dripping from all the roofs and trees....

    1. Sorry, Elisabeth, I don't remember ever following you. If it happens that I unfollow somebody it's usually with people who never followed back or who never commented here. I don't know if that is the case with you or not.

      Glad you like WINTER'S TALE, it should be a really great film.

  7. What a Martin Scorsese film where Leonardo DiCaprio isn't the main character. Shocking!
