someone carving their devotion in the heart shaped pool of fame

lyrics today from Siouxsie and the Banshees [kiss them for me]

The Artist’s Way this week bade me to list five favourite films, so here I go:

  • Harold and Maude
  • Pretty In Pink
  • Fallen Angels [aka Duo luo tian shi]
  • Chungking Express [aka Chung Hing sam lam]
  • Camille Claudel

What common denominators do these films all hold?

  • love
  • loss
  • figuring out one’s place in life

Also, they all have songs in their soundtracks that I feel strongly about. That’s not really a surprise, though!

I used to write songs for The Violet Dawning that I described as songs of love and loss. Coincidence? I think not.

I write, as openly as possible, about my experiences with life, love, creativity, depression and not-depression. I share opinions. I promote compassion and change. I talk about music. I also write poetry and short stories. I like to share them here.
