This is not a current film. but was out in 2007 and I thought a good contrast to “50 Shades of Grey) which was just released. “Once ” touched me on several levels. The music is a haunting and a painful song of longing. The story is set in Dublin, a city that has experienced much pain over time. It is a love song and a love story, but not a romantic story of boy meets girl and they fall into bed together. It is not about inflecting pain on someone in the name of love, but it is the tale of touching someone’s life and heart with love that wants the best for the other person even if that is not being able to be with them. Touching the other person’s heart in a quiet, loving, gentle, “I want what is best for you , ” kind of a way. . . .selflessly putting the other’s needs first. I am convinced that people come into our lives when we need them almost as guardian angels to love and guide us with encouragement through and over hard times in our lives for a day or a lifetime all along the way. Most often we are unable to repay the kindness and love they give us, but we can pass that love on to another needy soul!

So glad you liked it. . . . Yes, I think we do have similar tastes in music as I usually like yours! Big news today ! One of the girls and I are going to be filmed on Sunday in a commercial. She is getting a green card in the US and I am a doctor. I just went with her so she didn’t have to go alone, and they asked me to be the doctor. Yikes. . . I am a good talker but not sure about an actor! Yikes. . . .Just got back to the hostel. They will send a car for us on Sunday morning. We will be working for 6-8 hours for a 30 second commercial !
WOW…..I must see this commercial…When will it be aired? x
