That Dashingly Debonair Style Of Cary Grant


Without a doubt, Cary Grant was one of my favorite film actors of yesteryear because not only was he brilliant at comedy, he was an outstanding dramatic actor as well. Those in Hollywood who knew him said that he was a very dedicated actor, who they greatly respected. He was known for being extremely professional in his work ethic.

My two favorite Cary Grant films were Bringing Up Baby and Penny Serenade (for which he was nominated for an Academy Award). His performance in Penny Serenade was so touching that he ripped my heart out and had me in tears. It was then I realized, "Damn...this man can act!"

The Orient-Express: Traveling Back In Time


I know that I must have shared in previous posts about my love of trains and train travel.

My fascination with trains began when I was a kid in the 1960's, and my mother would take my brother and I into the city via the train. It was always such a treat. I can still recall how much I enjoyed the motion of the train and how relaxed it made me feel. Many times I would fall asleep as the train clickety-clacked and swayed over the tracks, while watching the outside scenery swoosh past me. To me, trains were just the coolest things ever!

Photography: I Have A "Thing" For Windows and Doors


Yes, I have a thing for windows and doors. It's a cross between an addiction and a lust-after.

I see windows and doors as having their own unique personality and character. I can spend hours just walking the streets, hunting for interesting windows and doors.

I also see them as being symbolic; therefore inspirational...


Today I would like to share some photographs I took last year and the beginning of this year, that caught my eye.

Music: A Tribute To George Michael


Music is very much like a fragrance.

A piece of music, as does a fragrance, has the ability to capture a feeling, an emotion, and then tie it to a memory that remains within our psyche forever.

That's why when we first hear a song (instrumental or vocal) we will always remember that first time; recalling the people, the places, and the experiences we had at that specific moment in our lives.

I believe that music and scent hold the strongest memories. At least they do for me.

Another thing that's interesting about music is that it transcends all languages by going straight to the heart, where it is heard and felt as a universal language; understood by all.
