Interesting post. I've also found the television - which normally is only a very minor part of my life - more diverting than normal the past few weeks. I've been trying to keep up with Borgen, and am loving it, although two episodes a week is quite demanding. There's also been Sherlock, and the excellent Stella (sadly only on Sky).

I thought about you reading this..


I so wish we could get the Danish programs here, and the Swedish Wallander. They aren't even available from Netflix. :<(
I've just watched all three seasons of Kingdom on Netflix Instant. I loved every minute. Such a kindly show. I'm sad it wasn't renewed, esp. since it ended with a bit of a cliffhanger.

So agree with you about Borgen. It's mu Saturday night treat. You sound pretty buzzing with your singing, yoga-ing and mentoring. Bodes well for the year. All power to your elbow wx

Apologies to Toby, Monica, Nan and Wendy not not acknowledging your comments sooner - I have been away from my blog for far too long.

Toby - welcome. I shall hop over and say 'hello' properly ASAP.

Monica - thank you so much for that excellent link.

Nan - I do hope that those Danish and Swedish programmes make it to the US soon. Perhaps US citizens of Scandinavian descent could start lobbying.

Wendy - wasn't Borgen brilliant? I cannot wait for the second series.

Thought for life

    We are the carriers of lives and legends - who knows the unseen frescoes on the private walls of the skull?

Thinking about . . .

  • Daniel Klein, Travels with Epicurus
    I too listen to music more and more. Throughout my life, music has stirred me more than any other art form, and now, in old age, I find myself listening to it almost every evening, usually alone, for hours at a time.

    I began writing because I liked to write things down. I learnt foreign languages because they seemed to enter my head by a process of osmosis.
  • Joan Bakewell, Stop the Clocks
    I live contentedly alone. It's better that way and I am often thoughtful about what has been and what might have been. There are many like me.

    Oh to be reborn within the pages of a book.

    Why is it that we lose the things we love, and things cavalier cling to us and will be the measure of our worth after we’re gone?

    I don't believe in God. I find it much easier to believe in ancestors. I like to imagine they are pointing us in the right direction.

Don't miss a post!
