Three Coins in a Fountain

Standard

I love the movie Three Coins in a Fountain. It’s the story of three American ladies in Italy. Two of them throw coins in the Trevi Fountain which is supposed to be lucky for a return to Rome. I’ve been to Rome twice and threw in coins each time. There’s a lot of wonderful moments in the film as well as some great scenery. It also has Louis Jourdan in it. He’s a wonderful actor. Frank Sinatra sang the theme song for the film and it’s beautiful. Give it a listen.

Seeking Inspiration

Standard

When I need inspiration, I watch movies. I love all kinds including foreign films. I watch not only for the plot, but for the pacing, the dialogue and the scenery. Any one of those things can be the impetus for some new inspiration for me. Sometimes even a character in the film may trigger an idea. I love cinema- of any era.

And then, there is always these two guys:

Art I Appreciate

Standard

I want it all!

This is a super hard prompt for me to answer. I have no way to say which I appreciate most. I was a dancer for many years and love ballet, ballroom and tap dancing the best. I could watch the ballet all day.

I’m also an avid amatuer photographer. I’ve been told I have a good eye and I love to take pictures from different perspectives.

My son has an architecture degree and we love to look at buildings everywhere we go. Anytime we traveled when he was a kid, we had to check out all the various architecture in the area. Houses, businesses, churches, statues, we love it all.

I’m also a major film buff. I adore all the old ones as well as good storyline modern ones. I’m not much on the stupid ones but I like a good story. In fact, as a writer, some of my best inspiration comes from the scenery, costumes and cinematography of films.

So, I guess my answer is, give it all to me. All except what they call modern art. I like my art to look like something concrete I can identify. LOL!
