Into The Wild...

A few weeks ago Julian and I watched the film INTO THE WILD, the true story of Christoper McCandless's journey to Alaska to live in the wilderness. It is one of those rare films that stay with you once you have finished watching, a true masterpiece directed by the 'oh so cool' Sean Penn. It's probably not every one's cup of tea..., but it really touched me!

If you have not seen it, then check it out it is powerful, dramatic, touching, sad, brilliant, complex, insightful, moving, beautiful.......it is in fact all of these things and more. It was also the first film that I have been able to watch without falling asleep since having Lola, so it really must have been good!

The soundtrack is also AMAZING.... by Eddie Vedder (of Pearl Jam fame). Julian went out and bought it soon after watching the film and I am in LOVE with it. I think that the track 'SOCIETY' totally sums up the film...................... (my kids are seriously fed up of hearing it!)

It's a mystery to me
We have a Greed
With which we have agreed

And you think you have to
Want more than you need
Until you have it all
You won't be Free

Society
You're a crazy breed
I hope you're not lonely
Without me

When you want more than you have
You think you need
And when you think more than you want
Your thoughts begin to bleed

I think I need to find a bigger place
Cause when you have
More than you think
You need more space.............................................

Just half of the track, but you get the picture, think I might go and play it once again.......X

Your fairy is called Tangle Saturnwand
She is a trouble maker.
She lives at the bottom of tangled gardens and in hedgerows.
She is only seen when the seer holds a four-leafed clover.
She wears tangled dresses of multicoloured petals. She has delicate pale pink wings like a cicada.
