The Fabulous Summer of Amélie Poulain

When we look at the images of Earth spinning in space and (thanks to the Internet) listen to its peculiar song which sounds a bit like the wind blowing, we are overwhelmed by the feeling of complete peace and timelessness. However, unlike this space scene, the Earth on ‘the ground level’ is completely opposite – […]

Memory: Chuck Berry (1926-2017) - Don’t Worry, Dear Grandpa

Clouds & Marshmallow Pies :)

Thomas: What do you think it’s like? Vada: What? Thomas: Heaven. Vada: I think… everybody gets their own white horse and all they do is ride them and eat marshmallows all day.
