My mind is full of noise.
My eyes, clouded by visions.
My shoulders, laden with empty weight.
There is so much to do,
And although I am not
The only one who can,
I am the only one
There is to do.
I run along. Then trot a bit.
Then stop, so as not to fall.
Still, there is no rest for sure.
I cannot move forward.
I cannot find fault.
I have too much that keeps me here.
I can only wait
Till others catch up;
Or until I fall behind;
Or until I stop long enough
To discover that some
Were here with me all along.
Even so, my mind is full of noise.
Good Television Entertainment
Having said all of that, my husband and I do sit down almost every evening and watch some television entertainment for and hour or two. So what do we watch? Let me tell you. We've had to do a bit of searching. We use Netflix, of course. We stream and we get the discs in the mail. We've looked back into the archives of Masterpiece Theater, and also the listings on Acorn TV. And we also ask friends what they watch.
Here are some of my personal favorite television productions. Some of these programs are series, some movies. They are all high quality productions. I could go on, but then that would take all the fun out or your own personal search.
Downtown Abbey Masterpiece series, can't go wrong here
Last Tango in Halifax short series, a little soap opera-ish, but very good
Bertie and Elizabeth movie, about King George and his wife, lovely
Enchanted April movie about new beginnings
Me and Mrs. Jones contemporary short series
As Good As it Gets movie, some of Jack Nicholson's best work
The King's Speech movie, Coin Firth, excellent, just excellent
Foyle's War mysteries set in WWII, top notch stories and acting.
Lark Rise to Candleford series, a must for those who want to feel good
Temple Grandin movie, true story
Father Brown series, mystery, look for the second series, not the original 1930's
Doc Martin series, drama/comedy, a must see
Bertie and Jeeves series about a rich young man and his butler, very funny
The House of Eliot series about two sisters who build a business in the 1900's
Upstairs Downstairs very long series but worth it, look for the original series, the best
Cranford short period series, another must
Return to Cranford short series sequel and another must
Longmire contemporary western mystery, good looking men
Call the Mid-Wife series set in lower London in the 1950's
Mr. Selfridge current series on Masterpiece Theater, very good
