Lightness of being

I've not read Milan Kundera's book (yet) though I love the title: 'The Unbearable Lightness of Being.' For some reason it came to mind when I opened the curtains the other morning and saw the fog. My bedroom window overlooks trees (such joy!) and the gorgeous, though currently naked, copper beech looked delightfully ethereal, framed by the holly tree that is nearer to my house.


  1. I wasted two hours of my life watching the movie in the 1980s. I have little memory of it except it was a very arty film, directed I think by a Spaniard, Pedro Almodvar, or something like that. I do agree, it is a great movie title, up there with Throw Mama from the Train. There is much beauty in naked trees, snow laden or just leafless.

  2. Nice. I suspect that I would not have seen the beauty in this scene.
