Swan of Dreamers is 7 today

Roses and ...

a hug from me to all of you.

Swan of Dreamers is 7 today. Wow! I appreciate all of you who come here to read my blog. Those who give your lovely comments and to my sweet lurkers too. I feel all your loving energy. It is all because of you that has helped me to continue blogging all these years. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I have been lately sharing more music. I hope you all have been enjoying it. I subscribed to the lovely newsletter of Susan Branch and she had had a link to a song by a singer named Maxine Sullivan. I had never heard of her, to be honest. Once I heard her lovely voice, that was all she wrote. I think you'll enjoy her lovely voice too. Here is Maxine Sullivan singing If I Had a Ribbon Bow. Enjoy. I'll see you all right back here on Monday. Have an amazing weekend.

Dream Thought 72 #: Freedom

“If you hear the dogs, keep going. If you see the torches in the woods, keep going. If there's shouting after you, keep going. Don't ever stop. Keep going. If you want a taste of freedom, keep going.”

New Moon

Happy Thursday, my friends. Yesterday was the second new moon in Aquarius. Then soon, it changed into Pisces. All my Pisces friends, your birthdays are coming up. Early Happy Birthday to all of you. It is also the Chinese Lunar New Year. Happy, Happy to those celebrating the year of the Goat.

From one of my favorite mystical books called Sun Magic by Dorothy Morrison. Here are her suggestions to celebrate the New Moon.

* Dress in shades of blue and green to welcome the sun.
* Burn blue and green candles.
* Have a magical movie fest with Lord of The Rings, Excalibur, The Mists of Avalon, Harry Potter.

I would add
* listen to Ocean nature sounds with or without music.
* Tap into your inner Mermaid or Merman. Spend time daily following your feelings and letting them flow.
* Watch movies which has water themes. Here are some of my favorites: The Pirate, The Pirate Movie, Mamma Mia. There are more, my mind is going blank, you get the idea.

Enjoy this New Moon energy. Look up at the sky on Saturday, the first sliver of the moon should be out.

Another Dawn

Happy Monday and President's Day for those of us in the US. Valentine's Day night, I went to Instant Warner Archive to see what new movies they had up. Lo and behold, I found this gem of a movie. Another Dawn (1937) starring the very dashing Errol Flynn and the lovely Kay Francis. Now, you can say it's dated in some ways. I enjoyed the old fashioned quality of the movie.

The story is simple. Errol Flynn plays Captain Denny Roark. His best friend and commanding officer, Col John Wister, played by Ian Hunter, comes home with unexpected new bride named Julia Ashton. Julia, played by Kay Francis enters the marriage as more of a friendship after grieving the loss of her previous love many months before. Col John in love accepts this. After meeting Denny, feelings grow between Julia and him. You can imagine what happens next. The film is short under 90 minutes. Kay Francis' clothes in this are beautiful. For those who love their romances with a bit of extra drama, you will enjoy this.

Of course, here is the trailer for you. Cheers.
