Maudie

This movie was awesome!  I laughed, cringed, and cried.  Ethan Hawke (Everett Lewis) and Sally Hawkins (Maud Lewis) play the lead roles.  Sally Hawkins obviously put a lot of heart and soul into the role.  Ethan, I haven’t watch him in many roles, Dead Poets Society probably was the last one I saw.  I’m totally in his fan club now!  The Cinematography was beautiful.  Shot in NFLD but resembled Digby and Marshalltown N.S.  I was impressed.

Quartetto Gelato

I received a huge surprise.  Free tickets to see Quartetto Gelato last night and was blown away by their talent. 

 
From world champion accordian playing to the Oboe players ability to play 14 instruments and do acrobatics.  It was amazing.  Thanks to my Guitar Teacher for the tickets. 

PS: I proudly knit my socks wilst I sat and stared in amazement  at the stage.  
Take care!

Sleeping Beauty

We saw the most delightful performance last night.  Jörgen ballet’s version of Sleeping Beauty at the Rebecca Cohn.  There’s nothing like the sound of pointe shoes on a stage floor.  I’m always amazed by the strength and fortitude it takes to perform all of those scenes and make it look easy.  The pit orchestra was awesome, with the sound of the bassoon and the harp.  Lovely!
