The Life of PI: Suffering that causes you to Triumph

carolyncolemangrady

The life of PI is a wonderful movie. The Movie shared a families tragedy loss, suffering and triumph. Watching this young man push through fear and focus on living was amazing. There were many scenes in this movie that suggested giving up. However, Pi was determined to reach his destination of safety. I can not image being shipwrecked on a small boat with a Tiger. It is pretty scary. Not knowing what to expect, or how to survive would leave many of us stranded and feeling very along. This Movie signified determination and hope. It is significant in that no matter how tough life gets our drive to continue and reach our destination out way all the obstacles that life presents.
Imagine no land in sight and a with 3 wild animals? What a hopeless scene. However, there is something inside of us all that promotes a willingness to…

Hot Off the Grill ! – Hot Pink Healthy Grill ,Wimbledon – review – New kid on the Block

Whoa! Did I just read the words Healthy and Grill together ? Or was it just my rumbling tummy playing tricks on my mind ?

It was out of sheer curiosity to find out what this new place on the Wimbledon High street was that we dared step in, Back in September last year the place had hardly opened about a week ago and my ma in law was visiting. She was most thrilled to know that there was even a healthy eating out option available after the onslaught of pub food, italian dinners and a host of other places I have dragged her to 🙂

The interiors are very welcoming with the huge armchairs that you can sink into but they were taken – obvious as they are next to a…

Stop and experience the Rain

This is sheer bliss! Take time to stop and enjoy life!

carolyncolemangrady

This video shares a child’s excitement and experiences in the rain. Smiling and amazed at each drop on her face. In this fast track society, and many pressing engagement adult forget the rain. The rain brings with it a refreshing, calming adventure that few adults experience in their life time. The question becomes have we discounted the small things that bring us joy? When is the last time you ran in the rain and laughed? Adults are concerned about getting a cold, hair wet and tracking water on their brand new rug if this is you raise your hand. Both my hands are up.

When I saw this video I felt like some adults have loss their passion for fun. Adults tend to worry, fret and complain. Where is the little child inside of us? This child trusting something she has never experienced not afraid but enjoying every moment. Sometimes…

Is that Cello big enough: It’s heavy

LOVE THIS!

carolyncolemangrady

I thought tonight would be a great time to relax and listen to Michael Meets Mozart. Do you know that there are many among us that do not know how to relax, unwind and allow the music to set you free. Free from the noise of the world, it allows you to experience the motion of the sound. This song infuses movement, courage, strength and empowerment. If you listen to each instrument and the tones it provides to the ear you would be amazed at what your imagination will give you. When I listen to the piano I imagine myself barefoot in streams of running water, like a river over flowing. Looking through the crystal movements of each ripple that runs over my feet.

When the sound of the music escalates and brings in the additional instruments it engulfs my mind to explore the dept of my being. I can…
