David Bowie and The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

If you haven’t seen The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, stop reading this post and go watch it right away. Seriously, one of my favorite films. Now, you might be wondering what the movie has to do with David Bowie. Of course, if you have seen the movie, you know. A particular song plays a pivotal role in the movie, and I love this compilation that I found of clips from the movie set to the song:

Hearing of David Bowie’s passing was quiet shocking, followed of course by the equally shocking passing of Alan Rickman. Two great talents lost to cancer.

So after David’s passing I was aching to hear his music, in particular Space Oddity. That is how I came across this wonderful video. I hope you enjoy it (but again, only watch if you have seen the movie already).

Such a sad news day.

The news of yesterday hurts my heart. The attacks in Paris, the attacks in Baghdad, all the other sad things in the world. Sometimes it feels like too much.

Look for the helpers

The above quote always comes around during these hard times, and you know what? It does help. Already we are hearing stories of great courage and of kindness.

Dearest friends in the effected areas, I hope you are safe. I wish there was something more that I could do for you, but know that you are in our thoughts and hearts.

Pumpkin Cheesecake

One of my favorite Youtube channels, Cooking with Dog, has a pumpkin cheesecake recipe that sounds delicious. I like pumpkin anytime of the year, especially in a cheesecake!

What about you? Do you think of pumpkin only in the fall/winter? Or do you enjoy eating pumpkin any time of the year?
