Cinema Space, Knitting and Birthday Poem

12 Dec

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!)

    Of course your Mum’s knitting is the best! I have never even attempted socks! All the best to you and yours 🙂

    Browning poem. You have to wonder just how long ‘L O V E’ has been around? They have it figured out , give or take, when Homo sapiens discovered fire. But am not sure when Homo amans got his or hers’ groove on.

    Mitts; like the colours. Darn it you sure can knit. They look in perfect uniformity considering the size. Have to laugh, my mother knitted a pile of socks this past week to keep her mind of health issues.
    “Grab a bunch on your way out”.
    There not as perfectly executed as yours, but she is my Mom so they’re as close to perfection as anything can be.

    Now am off to the ‘links’.
