books.
A month ago, I went to the campus’ library, and checked out a book (neat huh!) about the life of Vincent Van Gogh, one of the most brilliant artist of all time (and one of my favorites). I’ve been really enjoying learning more about his beginnings as an artist, and getting to know who he was before he started to take up drawing and painting.

For those interested, the name of the book is Van Gogh: His Life and His Art.

music.
Enjoy this wonderful selection of songs by Nick Drake. What a wonderful musician he was, and what a short life he lived… (click on image to listen)

film.
I recommend watching the film Amazing Grace (2007). It took me far too long to finally do it myself. Courageous stories about actual events that changed history, are probably the best ones to share with people you know. So here I am, sharing.

Any great ones you would like to share?

p.s. I heart Netflix
