"There is a strange sort of reasoning in Hollywood that musicals are less worthy of Academy consideration than dramas. It's a form of snobbism, the same sort that perpetuates the idea that drama is more deserving of Awards than comedy" - Gene Kelly [photo by ABC Photo Archives] #classicpopcornblog #classicstars #classicquotes #classichollywood #oldhollywood #cinema #quotes #quoteoftheday #genekelly #goldenage #goldenera #Hollywood #vintage #retro #musicals

💭 . Good afternoon everyone ~ how are you guys ? Sorry I’ve not spoken much, the days have been running away from me lately ..today I’m reading about dreaming in a book called the big questions in science ISBN - 9780233004891. . . The question on my mind is why do we dream ? I have been dreaming a lot lately .. so seems natural I need to investigate, like I always say when in doubt “go to the library” 😊Seems like lately I’m asking too many of the big questions ☺️.. have you been dreaming anything specific lately .. . . . .

📖 . . If death should come to me in Iona It would be a merciful parting. Of all I know under the blue skies there is no better sod on which to die. . Their interest lay in form and light, brushing pale shell-sand into the bays where Adomnan deemed best to die. . Foreground bolders, a still life Beinn Mors, escarpments, amethyst and jade, their are interest lay in form and light. . Iona, so small you can climb Dun I and see below you a circlet of waves, where Adomnan deemed best to die. . Over lava sills and basalt dykes a summer evening casts a simmering veil, their interest lay in form and light. . Rose flecked granite and opal sky, the Treshnish Islands float away where Adomnan deemed best to die. . Horizons of deepening aquamarine coax the mind beyond its day for their interest lay in form and light where Adomnan deemed best to die. . . . Sharing my favourite poem from The Hunterian Poems edited by Alan Reich . . . . .

⛅️ . . “He who has felt the deepest grief is best able to experience supreme happiness. Live, then, and be happy, beloved children of my heart, and never forget, that until the day God will reign to reveal the future to man, all human wisdom is contained in these two words, ‘Wait and hope.’ .
