So once in a while I let myself fall in to a bit of melancholy. It's not serious. It's usually hormonal. And it's often not a time to have deep conversations because my efforts at communication are hijacked by the inability of my brain to communicate to my mouth exactly what I am trying to say.
In short, it's a good time for silence. For turning off, tuning out and just waiting until it blows over. Which it does, eventually.
So I was a bit mired in melancholy this past weekend and my method of turning off was to watch a couple movies. One of which was absolutely perfect for what I was feeling.
Was stunning. Enthralling, beautiful and passionate and melancholy all in one.
This is the best version I've ever seen at portraying the darkness that was felt in reading the book. The ending was superb and I could watch it over and over and over except.....
it facilitates the melancholy so I won't. I will take it back to the video store like a good girl and instead try to actually accomplish something.
But if you are looking for an amazing story, something to capture you and keep you until the very end, then I highly suggest this
Just remember to wake up from the ethereal nature of it when it is all over!
