You have to love the internet and all the goodies out there waiting to be found. My husband came across this version of the Jurassic Park theme song that I’ve been playing in my classes this past week. John Williams’ original score has been slowed down 1000 times. The result is an incredible piece of classical music that is soothing and grounding.
Are you tired of seeing this book cover? I’m not…yet. If you want my opinion, we are going to hear about this book for a very long time, heck there’s now holiday packages themed after this story.
I thought the movie was good (and the book even better). A well rounded chic flick with Gilbert’s wittiness thrown in. There are two scenes I particularly like: the opening scene to her India adventure. I loved the contrast between Italy and India and the music choice was perfect. This scene got my heart racing to head to India. The song was BOYZ by M.I.A. Have a listen, it will bring it all back.
The second scene, is her first experience in the meditation room at the ashram. We’ve all been there…time seems to stand still and the mind rambles on. Painful in more ways then one.
If you’d like to read a males take of the movie and the buzz it brought among he’s co-workers, check out Kyle Wells review on his Cinefile Blog.
Finally getting to the reason for this post. (See, it’s so easy to go on and on about this book.) Desiree Daniel a writer from Vancouver documents her Eat Pray Love experience over the course of one day in this blog post on Granville Online.
Wow! What an opening ceremony celebration last night. The highlight for me was k.d. Lang singing Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah.
Not from the ceremonies…amazing still…
