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."
