Music in My Heart

"You are the music, while the music lasts."-T. S. Elliott

The other night I was reminded of a hauntingly, lovely song called "Falling Slowly" written for the movie "Once" (see this film if you haven't already) by Glen Hansen and Marketa Irglova. It received an Oscar for best Original Song. I think this young woman, Marketa (I believe she was 19 when awarded the Oscar) is so sweet. In part of her acceptance speech she says this:

" no matter how far out your dreams are, it's possible. And, you know, fair play to those who dare to dream and don't give up. And this song was written from a perspective of hope, and hope at the end of the day connects us all, no matter how different we are."

I'd never heard of "Once" but after reading Maria's comments on TrekCapri's blog and now this post, I'm going to put it in my Netflix queue. Sounds like a movie (and music) that I'd like!

Hi Barb, like Annie I'm gong to add Once to my Netflix queue too. That's a great quote! I think I'm going to really enjoy this movie too! Thanks so much for sharing and writing this great post. Have a great evening!
