 Just finished watching all 3 episodes of Sir Peter Jackson's Beatles documentary ~  LOVED it!!

I especially enjoyed watching how the songs came together over time ~ the genius of the group ~

I tried ~ I really, really tried!

 I really tried to like Amor Towles' new book "The Lincoln Highway"...

But after 147 pages, I had to give it up. I was bored to tears. It was no where NEAR as engaging as his "A Gentleman in Moscow", and I just couldn't finish it.

Poop. Such a disappointment ~

Late to the Party...

 ...but I'm a believer!  I've just read Amor Towles' "A Gentleman in Moscow", and I loved it! Well written, enchanting and intriguing ~ I will be getting it for my permanent collection.

I tried to read his first novel too ~ but I had to put it away. Not NEARLY as good; very much a disappointment.

My creative mojo, which has been so dreadfully absent since the fall of '19 seems to be returning, slowly but surely. I've done one project from long ago; have some new G45 projects ready to go.  YAY!!!

 This afternoon, I watched the movie "The Father".  No wonder Anthony Hopkins won the Best Actor Oscar for it.

Keep Kleenex handy ~ especially at the end.

5 stars ~

 ...if someone wishes you a "Merry Solstice" instead of "Merry Christmas"? 

Or if someone tells you "The axial tilt is the reason for the season"...

I'm not trying to ignite a flaming war here ~ just to get honest opinions...

Cottleston Pie is the Taoist philosophy dealing with our Inner Nature (as explained by Winnie-the-Pooh)
To get the full scoop, read "The Tao of Pooh" by Benjamin Hoff.
