Robin Williams in "Good Morning Vietnam" ft. Louis Armstrong - What A Wo...

Taken from a friends FB page :-
"Depression is NOT a choice. It's a disease. Maybe Robin Williams will be our saviour. Maybe his death will be our voice. Yes, you leave behind those who grieve but you have no idea the private hell people with depression have. Each one is different. Each one fights alone help or no help. Drugs mask but never cure. Doctors give advice but never cure. People with depression have to be stronger mentally and sometimes you just get tired of the mental fight. Because it never stops. You're awake you fight. You're asleep you fight. It's never done. I would take the physical punishment over the mental punishment because mental never shuts down. Ever. So do not tell me it's a choice because it's not. Sheesh."

Little Owl!

I like Owls, a lot.
Collect plates with pictures of them and have said plates lining my flats deep stair well - so, this delights me ...

Peter, Paul & Mary - Puff, the Magic Dragon!

I remember this little song from when young, my Mother & I use to sing along to it.
But I never really listened to the lyrics, or understood the significance of last verses which tell of when childhood innocence is gone, till much later - then, poor Puffs fate brought a sentimental tear to my eyes and still does when heard.
This recording is from 1966...

Starry Starry Night!

The paintings of Vincent Van Gogh set to Don McLean's 'Starry Starry Night'...

I've always admired the artists works & loved the wistful song, so this video combining both so cleverly together, is a touching delight to me.
