Now, for something a little different...

I have found the following video which is from the soundtrack of Brother Sun Sister Moon. It was recommended to me by a blogging friend. I have actually been able to download the full movie from Youtube, and may view it this evening. The visuals in this video are so lovely, and it gave me a sense of reprieve from our winter weather, so I thought it might be nice to share this here.

Has anyone of my wonderful readers here, ever seen this film? It looks quite magical. the music was composed and performed by Donavan, and when I heard this, I remembered his music very well, especially The Hurdy Gurdy Man. It also brought back memories of the somewhat more gentle time of flower power and the 60's. (Which of course wasn't really all gentle, by any means, but his music was maybe representative of the better side of this era.)

The music I've listened to so far in this soundtrack is just beautiful.The movie is about St. Francis of Assisi, who I've always thought sounded like an interesting person.

So I hope you might enjoy this. Wishing you a great week ahead!

This is lovely and I'm not sure I've seen this movie, but the song sounds so familiar. Maybe it's similar to Donovan's other songs. So sweet. And the story of St.Francis of Assisi is a wonderful one.

I still can't find the movie about the adopted dog with Diane Keaton on Netflix. I must have put it in wrong, but nothing appears when I search for it.

Enjoy the movie, and enjoy your week.

Thanks to both of you for visiting. :)
Ann, maybe I gave you an incorrect name, I'll check and e-mail you with it again.

I did love the movie, it is well worth seeing I think for it's absolutely beautiful filming. It was directed by Franco Zeffereli,(I am not spelling this right, sorry), the same director for Romeo and Juliet, and was made in 1972. The one I found on Youtube was great, and it was in high def I think. You could see everything so clearly.

Wishing both of you a good week ahead.
