The Fountain

I found this meme at Maryellen's Garrison's Garret Fiber Art, here are the rules:
- grab the nearest book and write down the name and author
- turn to page 123 in your book and go to the fifth sentence
- record the next three sentences

So, I grabbed one of the books that were and will be close to me (easy to grab first! ^^) and with me forever, Lewis Carroll's 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland', page 123:

'What is the fun?' said Alice.
'Why, she,' said the Gryphon. 'It's all her fancy, that: they never executes nobody, you know. Come on!'


Last night we went to the movies and I've seen one of the most amazing films ever: 'The Fountain' with Rachel Weisz and Hugh Jackman. It's called sci-fi, the plot can be summed up to a few words describing the story as thousands similar to this one, but I will not do this. I'll only say that this movie is mystical and magical, it's calm and it's soothing, it's sometimes sad to the core of sadness, it reveals some truths but different for different people, it's beautiful and it's about a tree.
Which gives me some food for thought because only in the early morning on Saturday I was planting a tree - our Christmas tree which seemed to have survived 12 days in a small pot with some soil among it's roots, in a warm room, and since yesterday it was put back where it belonged, and I hope it would grow.
And in the evening we watched a movie about the tree.
(more about tree symbol in my life here)
