Astute observations

Categories: General | November 16th, 2012 | by Assi | one comments

Some times you can be utterly bewildered by the astute observation of a child, and i was caught completely off guard this morning by my daughter.

As we were playing in the morning before I had to leave for work I told her I need to get ready to leave for work she told say,with a blink or hesitation, ” Aba, no Work, Enough” I was stunned for a second and when replied with” True, but I need to go” to which she replied ” Aba, Sleep , Feel better” .

Short, to the point and 100% accurate, if only I could have followed that Zen advise I would have been a very happy man, Sadly I had to disengage myself from the play time and leave for work, with a song that has been popping in to my head every time I think of my kids , Twilight Time by The Platters :

Heavenly shades of night are falling
It’s twilight time
Out of the mist your voice is calling
It’s twilight time
When purple colored curtains
Mark the end of the day
I hear you my dear at twilight time

Deepening shadows gather splendor
As day is done
Fingers of night will soon surrender
The setting sun
I count the moments darling
Till you’re here with me
Together at last at twilight time

Here in the after-glow of day
We keep our rendez-vous beneath the blue
Here in the sweet and same old way
I fall in love again as I did then

Deep in the dark your kiss will thrill me
Like days of old
Lighting the spark of love that fills me
With dreams untold
Each day I pray for evening just
To be with you
Together at last at twilight time

Together at last at twilight time

I know that the song is meant for adult lovers, but I understand the yearning expressed and I feel it also expresses how i feel about the chance to see my kids.

Skyfall – a return of classfull Bond

Categories: General | November 8th, 2012 | by Assi | no comments

I went to see “SkyFall” last night, expecting to be entertained mildly and have a nice time, and i got more then I was hoping for.
This movie combines the grit that the previous two Daniel Craig movies introduced to Bond with a charm and class that you got from some of the original Connery Bond.
I will not give spoilers, this function at our household is reserved to the Mrs, but I will say that they did a very good job in meshing the old style bond with the new style of action that is dominant in this age’s action movies.

The last 4 Bond movie’s were fluff that once the movie ended you didn’t think of it too much, yet with this movie i found myself thinking about during the 2 hours drive I had the morning after,Time usually spent in replaying “A New hope” in my head while stuck in dead traffic,and for those of you that know me that should tell something if it manage to “knock out” a Star Wars movie …

So it you have a chance to go see it and have not done so yet, and if you are a Bond fan, this one is a must see.
two thumbs up and a “Hell, yes”
