Animal Farm

A review of Animal Farm by George Orwell

Animal Farm

✮✮✮✮✮

This is one of those must reads that you hear about constantly at school. People will present it to you at least once a year. I'm not attacking this at all, look up, I put a five stars onto it! The fact that people talk and talk about it somehow forces you upon reading it, if school hasn't already - and I think it's a great thing. It gives such a good insight in how people can be driven into blindness in totalitarian entities, all with such a simplistic flow of words that create the perfect context, characters and plots that are Animal Farm.
I knew the story from all the presentations I mentioned previously. I had seen the cartoon/movie plenty of times, I even recall demanding to see it again, and again as a little kid, even though it made me cry and is a pretty frightening movie - it left such a vivid images of it that I kept having as I read Orwell's words. But even with all the knowledge I had on Animal Farm, the book was a great treat. And it might just be me but it was much more lighter than the movie. Easier, but don't get me wrong the movie is amazing!
So, hum, in conclusion I'm recommending both the movie and the book to everyone! :)

Cacti

Hey blogphiles* !

The other day I ventured out into the open world and went to a plant shop (Botanic). There I found a table filled with tiny cacti - so I obviously looked around - getting spiked on the way - to fall in love with 3 (non-spiky) cacti. I then proceeded to choose three classy yet simple assorting pots for them...

The result was really insta-worthy:

Don't you love it?

Wednesday's Words of Wisdom: #23

"I have no special talent . I am only passionately curious"

"I have no special talent . I am only passionately curious"

If one of the most talented mathematicians of our history can say this, you can too.

So today for Einstein's sake be curious.

Open your eyes.

Open your ears.

Open your heart.

Passionately,

M

Wednesday's Words of Wisdom: #22

The secret of getting ahead is getting started.

Take it in.

Close your eyes.

Breath deap - I know it can be scary - open your eyes.

Can you see it?

Can you see the secret key?

Can you see the key in the ignition? crying to be turned - to finally start the engine of your life?

M,

Berlin Wall and Art

Today’s Google Doodle is celebrating the fall of the Berlin Wall (9 November 1989) with an emotional video showing photos of the fall in 1989, and also photos of pieces of the wall today which can be found all around the world with original graffiti and/or new art on them as a reminder of what the Wall had done to affect Germany and the world.

#GoogleDoodle

This Google Doodle reminded me of the East Side Gallery (which very unfortunaly doesn't exist any more since March 2013):

I came upon this Gallery when last year I was working on my Final Art Exam for the Brevet (french test) and my chosen subject was Street Art. I had chosen one of the pieces for my presentation, and I have decided to share a quick analyse on one of the pieces of the Gallery.
