Cinema Space, Knitting and Birthday Poem

1   I loved this short film, Cinema Space Tribute, which is on Alex’s blog . This is a  journey through 46 years of space travel in film from 1968’s 2001: A Space Odyssey by director Stanley Kubrick, to 2014’s Interstellar directed by Christopher Nolan and all to a soundtrack of “Do not go gentle into that good night” by Dylan Thomas, my all-time favourite poet. Thank you so much Alex. Here is the link to the film

2    I am making a tiny pair of fingerless mittens for Grand-baby B. They are quite tricky, being so small, but I should finish them this weekend.

Nearly done

3   It is my lovely Sister-in-law’s birthday today and I give her this beautiful little poem from Robert Browning who died on this day in 1889.


So, the year’s done with!
(Love me forever!)
All March begun with,
April’s endeavour;
May-wreaths that bound me
June needs must sever;
Now snow falls round me,
Quenching June’s fever –
(Love me for ever!)
