Remember Me This Way

 Dear readers,

 I am now on my Easter holidays! Hooray! Three weeks of relaxation before going back to University and facing my summer exams. I will do plenty of study, of course, but a lot has happened this half-semester, and it will be good to have the chance to chill out a bit.

 I would like to bring to your attention that I have set up a blog for my poetry and possibly other types of writing. It would mean a lot to me if you could have a look at it. Feel free to comment and let me know what you think.

 Finally, I thought I would share this song and clip from the film Casper. Beware of spoilers if you haven't seen the end of the film!

For anyone who doesn't want to see the clip for fear of spoilers, here is the song on its own:

 As a kid, I'd occasionally go to an activity club where they had a TV room. At least half the time, this film was showing. I saw all of it in bits and pieces, but never from beginning to end. 

 It was only a couple of years ago that I caught it on TV and was able to sit back and enjoy the whole film. It was a lot better than I remembered; I think being older allowed me to appreciate the tragedy/friendship/romance side of the film, whereas as a kid I saw it more as an adventure/mystery film.

 Anyway, I really love the dancing scene. While I do like the song in its own right, I believe that being fitted with this specific scene elevates it to something incredibly beautiful and poignant. The lyrics are very simple, but work so well with the music and with the scene.

"Every now and then, we find a special friend,
Who never lets us down."

"If you lose your way, look back on yesterday,
Remember me this way.... Remember me this way."

 I hope you're well,
