The Way We were

"I'll look around
And when I've found someone
Who laughs like you
I'll know this love
I'm dreaming of
Won't be the old love
I always knew"
Madeline Peyroux

I dont exactly recall what brought up this movie into my mind today...maybe the song lyrics above as I was calmly driving along the beach front on my way back home from a gorgeously packed day at work....maybe the emotional simple depth of her voice saying things that in a good deal of time haven't touched my soul,with the added background music intoxicating me into relaxation...either way it took me back to a long time ago..to when I saw the movie 'The way we were' years ago and oh...I fell in love with the story..without giving the story line away the song and movie are entwined in a beautifully poetic way even though they were made in different generation...nothing gives me a sense of security like nostalgia...its always special to look back in time and remember all the different things that moved you...made you smile and gave you things to reflect on....honestly sometimes its the best escape into the recesses of your mind from a world we just dont want to deal with at times.

Barbara Streisand need I say more? One of the worlds most timless legends...her movies...her music...her strong personality...shes very notorious for being a force to be reckoned with in the industry and at every concert the woman gets a well deserved longstanding ovation and passionate screams of an encore for her sheer artistry...honestly who can blame them...I wish they made music the way they used to these days.

Its struck me during the movie how insightful the human psyche is...After all these years you can still see a similarity between what the characters were facing and what we face today...the director did a beautiful job with his insight...Robert Redford is dreamy and plays his part in such a way that as the story unfolds you begin to be swept away with realistic storyline and empathize with the both of them to give you something to think about...you percieve an unbiased balanced point of view of the complexities of life and relationships...the message it leaves you with is powerful and keeps you reflecting long after its over...its a timeless masterpiece of cinematic history.

Heres the beautiful song from the equally touching movie...I added a movie clip for you to enjoy...who knows...maybe it will awaken a part of you that you thought didnt exist with all the mainstream commercial noise going around these days. Here are a couple of extra songs to chill you out before you go to 'The way we were' videos.
Dance me to the end of love and Ill look around...knock yourselves out :)


Hugs to you sexy peoplessss xxx

oh the movie sounds like just what i need right now..

funny though, ur post got me thinking of memories that got me all nostalgic, and sadly.. a quote struck me: "nostalgia isn't what it used to be" .. it just doesn't evoke the longing it used to.. and i do miss that.
