Ever been Inspired?

Hi fellow bloggers. When I have five spare minutes, I sometimes press the 'NEXT BLOG' button at the top of the Blogger blogs and have a fly around the worlds blogs and I've picked up some gems. There's also some dross and just lately a plethora of advertising for drugs and more recently some pretty objectionable Russian pornography. Regrettably, Google do take some time to get rid of these things and I would urge you to report this rubbish if you ever come across it to keep the bloggesphere for us bloggers as clean as possible. There are alternatives you are looking for something more racy.

I did come across this little snippet from YouTube tonight and I would be interested whether or not you would be inspired or have been inspired or moved by a speech you've seen at the cinema.

I've shed a few tears over the years at some scenes on the big screen, most recently in Gran Torino when Eastwood's character Walt Kowalski seems hopelessly at odds with the world about halfway through the film. I remember crying when John Wayne's character in 'The Sons of Katie Elder' stands on a hill top, looking down at his mother's funeral, an event he cannot attend because he is a wanted man. Inspiration, though is something else - I've racked my brain and can't say I have been inspired for sure. At the end of the day - movies are entertainment and it's easier to tap on the emotional drum than to inspire you to go out and do something, or change the world or inspire you to be different. Please tell me if you've been inspired at the pictures

I get weighed tomorrow, so I'll post an update as soon as I can.

Have a great week; whatever you are doing, be safe, be successful, be happy - and be INSPIRED!

Chat soon

  2. Hi Josie, thanks for responding. It's odd, but I've never seen the film, I'll try to find it and have a butchers. I'm delighted that someone has been inspired by cinema. Hope everyone that side of God's own county is well.
