Out of Africa ...

One of my all time favorite movies is Out of Africa.  I was sobbing before the credits rolled and all the way out of the movie theater.  I took comfort in the fact my friend was sobbing as well. We would gather ourselves a moment, laugh, and then start sobbing all over again.

When I was pregnant with my son, I would sit and quietly listen to the soundtrack as I imagined sharing the gift of music and books and art and a mother's love with him.  It was a time of anticipation and bliss.  The movie and its music will always have a special place in my heart. 

Also holding a special place in my heart are the movies:  Legends of the Fall and Cold Mountain.  Wonderful soundtracks and cinematography and, of course, the story.
