A few sleep ins, some couch slouching, a movie marathon or two, a good novel, a catch up with friends, some quality, unhurried time with the people that I love, some time in the garden and probably some time at the easel as well....ah yeah.... it is all looking very promising and I am more in need of a serious reboot than I have been in a very long time, so I intend to spend my time wisely.
The year so far has gone by at an incredible pace, it's really quite hard to get my head around the fact that we are actually half way through another year already. Last Christmas really doesn't seem all that long ago to me. Is it age that makes time speed up like it does, or is it that we just keep cramming more and more into our lives and that is why we appear to have less and less time?
I can't say for sure, but I do know that I am looking forward to the next two weeks slowing right down to a snail's pace as I switch myself back a notch, lose myself in the quiet of contemplation, tune myself out for a spell and focus on all of the things that I love most about this crazy world and none of the stuff that I don't.

An Indian Tamil-language comedy-drama film written, directed and filmed by M. Manikandan. Premiering at the 39th Toronto Film Festival, The Crow's Egg amused and touched audiences with its tale of brotherhood in the slums of Chennai, India.
Two resourceful brothers that live with their mother and grandmother in the slums, hatch a money making scheme that will enable them to have their very first taste of pizza from the new pizza chain that has just opened up near their home.
The children actors - J. Vignesh and V. Ramesh, are so delightfully mischievous and resourceful, they really made this movie an absolute joy to watch. This is one of those films that really puts into perspective the extreme hardships of the people that are living in the slums of India. When you have to work for a month just to afford a fast food pizza, things are really very tough indeed.
FINAL SAY: Desperate for the pizza dream.
