In the meantime, I busy myself with keeping the machines oiled and the cogs spinning; and essentially that is all we are ever doing really, keeping balls in the air and keeping our lives in motion. To be honest, I do quite love the day to day things, the mundane and the predictable things, they are the things that make life comfortable and the difficulties bearable in a noisy world.
Regardless of how many times I have traveled abroad, I have never gotten tired of that completely wonderful moment when I return home and celebrate falling back into the arms of my loved ones, flopping onto my own bed and eating at the table with my own people again. It is something that is incomparable to anything else in this world, and far, far more precious than any exotic destination.
Sometimes falling back into line after a holiday can in fact be a fantastic thing, stepping back for the briefest of moments really can make you realise, that there is no place like home.

Probably one of the most visually pleasing movies I have ever had the joy to encounter. Every frame a feast for the eyes. The landscapes, the costumes, the backdrops and the soundtrack are stunning in every way, a true masterpiece offering from Tarsem Singh.
Set in the 1920's, an injured stuntman struggling with his pain and inactivity befriends a small girl with a broken arm. Together they find common ground in the boredom of the hospital and the love of a great story. The movie flashes backwards and forwards between the real world and the fantasy world that the couple create together.
Lee Pace is a vision as the Stuntman/Red Bandit and Catinca Untaru will melt your heart as Alexandria.
FINAL SAY: I fell hard.
