If you are ever in the mood for watching something charming with a little bit of laughter, I suggest watching Mon Oncle. It is such a wonderful movie. I personally love watching it on my laptop while making breakfast. The song alone is absolutely beautiful. There is very little narrative, but watching the interactions of all the characters makes you learn more...in a way...

"My dear, here we must run as fast as we can, just to stay in place. And if you wish to go anywhere you must run twice as fast as that."
"If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?" -Alice
"But then, shall I never get any older than I am now? That'll be a comfort, one way -- never to be an old woman -- but then -- always to have lessons to learn!" -Alice
"Either the well was very deep, or she fell very slowly, for she had plenty of time as she went down to look about her and to wonder what was going to happen next."
"I wonder if I've been changed in the night? Let me think. Was I the same when I got up this morning? I almost think I can remember feeling a little different. But if I'm not the same, the next question is 'Who in the world am I?' Ah, that's the great puzzle!" -Alice

I love the opulence of theaters and opera houses so naturally seeing a theater in a state of disrepair as great as this one was just as intriguing to me. Having the row of rickshaws replacing what I imagine would have been plush red velvet seats makes for an amazing and ghostly image. Who was the theater intended for and who uses it now? Obviously its function has changed. Finding this photo makes me think about how amazing it would be to visit Cuba. I would love to see it as it is today. I hope that Cuba and America can become peaceful, but I would love to see it before it becomes a trodden tourist destination. I think fanny pack donning, cargo short wearing tourists boarding buses takes away from the magic of experiencing another culture.

Vogue Italia, March 2008
This editorial is so gorgeous. I adore that the models blend in with the dancers since many of them also wear gowns of equal beauty. In addition, because their hair and makeup has been done in similar ways, it is not just another shoot where the models seem dislocated from their environment. With ballet and fashion being two of my great loves, it is no wonder that I instantly fell in love with this (I mean come on... Baryshnikov is in the opening shot!)
