Contemplating and Harry Potter

Because the holiday seasons I've been able to get some time to myself and think. Been thinking a lot and while in this thought process I've also been going around taking reference pictures with my trusty camera.

I am a big Harry Potter fan. I've been rereading all the books and watching all the movies, or at least to the latest one that's available on DVD. The books had been a big journey and now with the movies I am repeating history!! (well, my history). So I was thinking to myself what scene stuck with me the most?? I had to think very long for this one. It's the whole experience and the world you get caught up in that makes me love it so much. But if I HAD to pick one scene it would be when Harry first goes to Diagon Alley. That place is just amazing it has everything in that alleyway. The next I love is the stairwell of Hogwarts. Ok, so I didn't pick a particular scene or event but those places grabbed my attention but that just explains what I said before that I loved the world and atmosphere.

Now I ask what was your favorite part of the movie??

Book of the Day: The Giving Tree

Now I know it says The Book of the Day in the title but this is one of my all time favorites. The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein. It's a bout a boy and a tree and how much the tree loved the boy. I remember very clearly when I first had someone read this book to me. It was in kindergarten and the teacher was reading it to us. It hit me very hard. I recommend this to anyone whether you're into books, children's books or not. It's a very touching story and you're bound to remember it for a very long time.
