That Midnight Train...

I am...
Selah is only my name.
Walked for 20 years. Crawled for 1.
Plans to fly for 100 more are not yet written in stone, but optimism needs us just as much as we need her.
I take pride in being proud.
Smiling makes me smile.
The sun doesn't always shine, but being dark ain't as bad as they say..
So I make this account of life as it happens. my thoughts are mine. respect that.

lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
memory and desire, stirring
dull roots with spring rain.”

Chico & Rita directed by Fernando Trueba and Javier Mariscal is on Netflix instant play and I couldn’t be more thrilled!!

Chico is a young piano player with big dreams. Rita is a beautiful singer with an extraordinary voice. Music and romantic desire unites them, but their journey - in the tradition of the Latin ballad, the bolero - brings heartache and torment.

If you’re a lover of Jazz, music, animation, and great storytelling you will absolutely adore this. Chico & Rita has been on my radar to watch for awhile now. I love that its a Spanish-language animation and the style this entire film has been drawn in is just beautiful. Every scene is just breathtaking. I highly recommend you watch it for not just the eye pleasure, but for the music as well.
