The Two Books I Read

Last week I read two books. One was Diana’s Boys by Christopher Andersen, and the second one was The Best of Me by Nicholas Sparks. I thought I was getting short stories to read when I grabbed the second one. When I started reading it, I realized that I had already seen the movie based on it.

I had liked the movie except that I didn’t like the director’s choice for the older version of the hero. The older guy didn’t look at all like his younger self. Basically when you grow older there are changes but still look an older version of your earlier self, not that you look entirely different. I liked the words of the song by Lady Antebellum.

Love comes in circles

And love takes its own time

Bending and breaking

Not taking a straight line

Never knew another love

Timeless, and true

I did with you

Once I realized I was reading the whole sad story again, I wasn’t happy. I wanted to read something which could lift my spirits — which wasn’t happening.

When Diana died it was totally unexpected. To this day when I see both the princes walking behind their mother’s casket, my eyes tear up. The book brought the grief both the boys went through vividly to mind. The queen should have intervened when Prince Charles carried on his affair with Camilla, and put a stop to it by threatening him that he won’t become the future king.

Charles was too callous in relation with Diana. She went through a lot of grief, and pain because of her husband. On the other hand she shouldn’t have openly admitted to her own affairs which she did in retaliation to Charles’s conduct. That brought the queen’s wrath on her in the form of divorce.

I hope next time I’m in luck’ and not bring home tear jerkers. Life is too short. There should be more laughter, and less tears.

Wishing you all! happiness, and good health.

Everything I Do

Daily Prompt: Worldly Encounters
The friendly English-speaking extraterrestrial you run into outside your house is asking you to recommend the one book, movie, or song that explains what humans are all about. What do you pick?

I am a forgetful person. I read books, see movies, hear songs and then forget. At the moment I am reading Marian Keyes, “Last Chance Saloon”.
It is a good book to read. Very interesting!

To recommend to an extraterrestrial something to read, or listen or see, I would be hard pressed. Why?
The minute he asks I won’t remember anything. The one thing I can do is to let him spend a day with my family. He can observe for himself us humans.

I like Christina Perry song, “A thousand years”.

Another song
Bryan Adams Everything I Do

All time Favorite, “Gone with the wind”.

Movie, The Notebook
