Fred and Ginger With Heineken

Today is a major chill-out day for me. No news, no blogging about anything of substance. Just a day to relax and try to enjoy myself. After the 2 1/2 hour adventure at the grocery store, I made it home with all the necessary stuff and one very essential requirement for this major chill-out day, a six pack of Heineken.

While savoring the smooth taste, I watched Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers in Swingtime. The grace and ease with which those two glide across the floor in their dance is so beautiful.

Some things struck me about this movie. This movie was made in 1936 and yet in some ways it timeless. It is a love story told through the dancing. In the first dance scene, is the kindling of the attraction. Each dance after that progresses until the last dance which was so effective in showing the hurt and pain of a seemingly lost love.

It has been a good and for the most part, a peaceful day. Maybe tomorrow I'll feel like ranting about something in the news. For now, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers is on and another Heineken beckons. Cheers all.

No trick photography - just plain skill.
