my darling

poem: Sonnet 75

- William Shakespeare

So are you to my thoughts as food to life,
Or as sweet-season'd showers are to the ground;
And for the peace of you I hold such strife
As 'twixt a miser and his wealth is found;
Now proud as an enjoyer and anon
Doubting the filching age will steal his treasure,
Now counting best to be with you alone,
Then better'd that the world may see my pleasure;
Sometime all full with feasting on your sight
And by and by clean starved for a look;
Possessing or pursuing no delight,
Save what is had or must from you be took.
Thus do I pine and surfeit day by day,
Or gluttoning on all, or all away.

We Still Remember

So many have fought and died for this country--it is good to stop and remember and be grateful.

...Though, because this is simply how my brain works, I can't help but notice how differently each film here uses music to reinforce the actions within a scene; I do think one is much more effective than the other.
