Happy Swan of Dreamers Day

 This is Swan of Dreamers Day for me. My sweet blog is 13! When I started blogging, it was such a big deal. I feel like blogging has waxes and waned, but I still love doing it. I am working on numerous creative projects now, I have to schedule time to keep my blog going. I still enjoy writing here and sharing all the things, events, stories that I love so much.



Celebrate with me now.  As we have a piece of this beautiful yummy pink cake, I love to know in the comments how did you find Swan of Dreamers? How long have you been reading my blog too? If you have a blog, let me know what it is so I can come visit you.

The class is a fun, safe and judgement free space. If you are interested, please sign up for my newsletter here at michelleofdreams.weebly.com

Valerie June

 

Happy Friday. It has become a thing for me to share music on Fridays. Today, I am sharing the wonderful Valerie June. I found her a few years back. I adore her bluesy distinctive voice. This is one of new songs called: Why The Bright Stars glow. Enjoy.

Dream thought #114: I am not a quitter.

"I am not a quitter. I will fight until I drop. It is just a matter of having some faith in the fact that as long as you are able to draw breath in the universe, you have a chance.

Dream thought #113: I feel, therefore I can be free.

"The Black mother within each of us -the poet- whispers in our dreams; I feel, therefore I can be free. Poetry coins the language to express and charter this revolutionary demand, the implementation of that freedom." - Audre Lorde

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day, my friends. Here I am peeking in to say hello.


 

Being the romantic I am, I am sharing a new romantic discovery. No, not Bridgerton. If you haven't watched it, please do. It is a wonderful show. I am very happy to see more actors of color being able to do more period pieces. The 1971 BBC version of Persuasion is my delightful discovery. Persuasion is my favorite Jane Austen book. I saw the 2007 version of Persuasion which I like, I have to still see the 1995 version. I found the 1971 version on you tube.
This is Anne Elliot (Ann Firbank) she has finally seen the love of her life, Captain Frederick Wentworth, after seven years apart. She was persuaded by her godmother, Lady Russell, not to marry him. Captain Wentworth hasn't forgotten her refusal of marriage and still hold a grudge. This is the gist of the story. It is a deep and beautiful love story. When I first began watching the mini series, I didn't like it at first. It is very much like a play, after a while I really enjoyed it. It is very faithful to the book. Now, I love it!
I don't want to give too much away. This is Anne and Captain Wentworth (Bryan Marshall) reunited briefly in a sweets shop. This is the first inkling that the lovers may have a second chance.
It is a great ensemble cast. All the actor embody the characters to me. I adore Ann Firbank and Bryan Marshall's Anne and Frederick. Sadly, Bryan Marshall passed away in 2019. Here is a fun Star Wars fact that makes me love the series is even more. Ann Firbank plays a small yet memorable part in the Rise of Skywalker ending. Makes it a full circle moment for me. If you are really interested, I have the first part of Persuasion to watch. Part 2 is also on you tube.


   

 Enjoy, my friends. Happy Valentine's Day.
