The Impossible

I just saw the Impossible. 
And WOW. Fantastic movie. So moving and terribly realistic.

And am I the only one who thinks that Tom Holland who plays Lucas (the eldest of the sons), should have been nominated for an Academy Award for best actor?
Naomi Watts in all her glory, but Tom was absolutely fantastic.  

And of course Ewan McGregor who is one of my favorite actors of all time, he was just as good as always.
He is such a natural actor, it just seems so effortless to him and thats what I love.

All and all a fantastic film.

I haven’t cried this much in all of 2012 put together.
Titanic has some competition.  

Love’s Aftershock

Love has thrown me
into an ocean, where I cannot
touch its depth nor rest my head
on its chest. Not until I am able
to hold its waves with my bare hands.
And that’s impossible.
Love play games like that.

I have only one wish,
to rest my head
and stay that way.
Unmoved by the aftershock
of love- of being so intensely
and wholly in love, yet losing it
all when it is over.

Thrown down again,
knowing nothing.
